Alice Engel passed away Wednesday August 3, 2016 of natural causes at the age of 88.

Alice was born to her parents Nora Carlile and Emery Hommel in Indianapolis, Indiana on January 27, 1928. Growing up she was accompanied by two older sisters, Evelyn and Dolores. These three sisters shared a bond that would last a lifetime. After graduating from Shortridge High School in 1947, Alice accepted a scholarship to attend nursing school at St. Patrick’s in Missoula, Montana. During nursing school, she met several other women with whom she would remain friends for the rest of her life. She graduated in 1951 as a registered nurse.

After graduation she married Linc Engel. They moved to Billings and Great Falls, MT where Linc was transferred for work. They had three boys, Jeff, Jerry, and Jay. Alice found nursing work in each of these towns before the family decided to move to Kalispell, MT in 1967, they later divorced.

Alice worked at Dr. Allison’s Office as a registered nurse for 18 years; many local people would remember her as their nurse. She also worked at Immanuel Lutheran Home on the weekends, which showed she thoroughly enjoyed her work in the medical field. She loved raising her three boys in the Flathead Valley and watching their lives unfold.

The joy in Alice’s life during her later years involved watching her grandchildren grow. She spent much of her time after retirement at her son Jay and his wife Lynn’s home with their son Jordan. Alice was very close to Lynn, who, through the care she gave, became the daughter Alice never had.

She is preceded by her parents and two sisters.

She is survived by her three sons, Jeff, Jerry, and Jay and wife Lynn, six grandchildren, Alissa and husband Brian Blankenship, Kyle and wife Kaylene, Hannah, Cavin and wife Elle, Emily, and Jordan, and two great-grandchildren, Kenzie and Myla.

Alice’s family would like to thank everyone at the Immanuel Lutheran Home for their care and compassion. Their love for Alice showed, the family could not be more thankful for the help they received.
