September 5, 1925 - October 8, 2014
Dr. Alice Milner, 89, long time resident of Lake Dallas, went to her heavenly home on Wed. Oct 8th, 2014 after a valiant battle with leukemia.
Born in Bay City, Texas, Dr. Milner spent the bulk of her life in the Denton area. She began teaching at TWU in 1967 later becoming the Chair of the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences. She took pride in having taught and influenced her many students. Even those who never took a class from her say she taught them with how she lived her life. Her wit and wisdom will be long remembered.
Alice is survived by her long-time friend, Bobye Riney, her dog Gracie, and her cats Moustache (Miss Tosh) and Pretty Boy. She is also survived by extended family members Robert Hodder, Nancy Vaughn, Colleen Darraugh, Shelly Torres-West and many, many friends.
Services will be held Saturday, October 18th at 1:30pm at DeBerry Funeral Home, 2025 W. University Ave., Denton, Texas 76201.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Alice’s home church, Metropolitan Community Church of Greater Dallas, 1840 Hutton Drive, #100, Carrollton, Texas 76005.
