Alice W. Lind

EUREKA — Alice W. Lind, 89, formerly of Bloomington, passed away Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, in Eureka.

She was born in Alvin on Oct. 2, 1924, the daughter of Henry and Flossie Thomas Wood.

She graduated valedictorian of her class from Alvin High School, and began working immediately following her graduation in Danville.

Alice Wood married Robert Lind of Danville, on Aug. 16, 1947, and they were married for 60 years. Robert, a WW II veteran, preceded her in death in July of 2008.

Alice was proud of her many jobs and enjoyed working especially at the Danville Employment Office early in her career. Her last job was in the Safety Deposit Department of Corn Belt Bank (now PNC Bank) on Washington Street in Bloomington, where she retired after 20 years of dedicated service.

Alice was a member of First Christian Church in Bloomington for over 50 years, where she volunteered as a Sunday school teacher, and sang in the church choir. She was a member of the Bloomington/Normal Women’s Club. She loved the voting and democratic process and was an election judge for years in her precinct.

Alice enjoyed playing bridge and was an active member in several bridge groups. She loved family antiques, and cataloging photos of her family members and trips with friends. Many of her fondest memories involved barbershop convention trips and shows, as her husband was a long time member of the local barbershop chorus.

Alice is survived by her daughter, Dina Lind (Bob) Emser, of Eureka; and her grandchildren, Lindy (Chad) Cline of Chicago, and Ian Emser of Peoria; her loving cousins, Max (Wini), Larry (Ruth) Thomas, and Kay Fetters in Rossville; and her nephews Steve Hansen (Corpus Christi, Texas) and Jeff Hansen (Atlanta, Ga.). She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Bob; and daughter, Carla Marie Lind.

Services will be announced. Memorial donations may be made to First Christian Church, Bloomington.
