Alice J. (Steinert) Kersey, 84, of Riverside, California and former resident of Russell, Kansas passed away on December 4, 2008. Alice was born in Barton County, Kansas on October 11, 1924 to Fred F. S. Steinert and Katie Strecker.
She graduated from Russell High School in 1942. She moved to Riverside, California in 1963. She worked as an assistant manager at March Air Force Base Golf Course in Riverside, California for over thirty years. When she retired, she loved to travel to see her children, grandchildren, her surviving sister, nieces and nephews. Special to her was a drive to Kansas for her yearly family reunion. She took her grandchildren on many of her cross the country trips. She was an avid sports fan and loved watching the Los Angeles Lakers. In her younger years she enjoyed playing golf, loved to entertain, especially having lots of fun playing cards with her sisters, brother-in-laws and other family members. She loved to cook and share her great creations with others. Throughout her life she always had a positive attitude and always had a pretty smile. It is in this spirit that the family wishes everyone who knew her to smile when they think of her rather than endure sadness, and to celebrate her life, rather than mourn it. Alice would not have wanted it any other way.
Alice is survived by her Husband, Myles, her daughters, her grandchildren, her sister, Florence Metheny of Russell, and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and three sisters: Alma Heckman, Alvina Hertel, and Lydia Bennett.A celebration of Aliceís life will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Saturday, December 13, 2008 at the St. John Lutheran Church of Russell.
