Obituary for Alice Jean Yancey

July 2, 1934 - August 22, 2017
Austin, Texas | Age 83


With great sadness, the family of Alice Jean Yancey announces the death of their dearly loved wife and mother. Alice was born July 2, 1934 and passed away on August 22, 2017 in Austin, Texas. Alice was born and lived her entire life in Austin. She died of natural causes after a prolonged and valiant battle with Alzheimer's disease. Her loving husband was with her at the time of her passing. Alice had been married 65 years to her husband, Marcus L. Yancey Jr.

Alice loved painting, gardening, crafts, and had a lifelong love of music and singing.

She was always acknowledged as "Super-Mom" to all the neighborhood kids and children of all ages anywhere, anytime. She was active throughout her life in multiple service organizations including local PTA's, and her church's ministry to newly arrived international women.

Alice loved to travel extensively with her husband all across the United States throughout their marriage, and in later years, loved to take ocean cruises and annual trips with her youngest daughter.

The family would like to extend its profound gratitude and appreciation to next door neighbors John Horn and Cori Hart, and home care provider Diane Gonzales for their critical and wonderfully compassionate assistance to both Alice and Marcus as they worked through the last years of her struggle with Alzheimer's.

Alice is survived by her loving husband, Marcus L. Yancey Jr., her children and their spouses, Marc and Elaine Yancey, Debbie and Paul Hejl, Janis and Larry Forar, Tenley and C. O. Todd, 5 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.
