Lawrence and Anna (Zegers) Kearney and the last surviving member of her family. She
was united in marriage to Martin Vandenberg on February 10,1942, at St Mary's
Church in David City .

Alice was a farmer's wife. She enjoyed working outside and helping with the
chores and farm work. She raised a huge garden and many flowers and used her
flowers for decorating St. Francis Church. Alice loved the animals on the farm
especially her Sheltie dogs and numerous cats. Alice was a member of St. Francis Altar Society and a local knitting club. She was very active in the preparation of the annual spaghetti dinners, particularly the sauce. She took a variety of classes in sewing and enjoyed quilting, baking, handiwork, ceramics and sewing clothes for her daughters and herself.

Her family was extremely important to her and the love of her life. She enjoyed the
visits of her children, grandchildren and great- grandchildren. Pictures covered her
walls and she loved to look at photo albums and hear about the activities of the family as well
as hearing about life on the farm. Alice always had something to eat for her visitors and
loved to serve angel food cake with strawberries or her homemade bread, which was a special
treat.
