Obituary for Alice Louise Milligan
Alice Louise Milligan, age 83. It is with a heavy heart we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved at her home in Sparta. We take comfort in knowing the Angels were singing as she was welcomed with open arms into Heaven's Pearly Gates. Alice was born in Conklin, MI to Donald and Rose (VanOeffelen) Umlor on September 23, 1936. She married Clarence “Bud” Milligan at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on August 29, 1964. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bud; her son, Tom; brother, Gene; niece, Michelle, and many other loved ones. She is survived by her daughter, Diane Brown; daughter-in-law, Mary Milligan; grandchildren, Andy Brown, Jake and Kristen Brown, Cory and Megan Brown, Karianne and Aaron Vereeke, and Allyson Milligan; 5 great-grandchildren and another on the way; her special friend, Ron; sisters, Ruth Heitz, Christine and Rog Quick, Margaret and John Wells; brothers, Pete and Marge Umlor, Nick and Linda Umlor, Dan and Mary Umlor; sister-in- laws, Lucy Chatman, Linda Milligan, and Vi Umlor; brother-in-law, George and Myra Milligan; many nieces, nephews, life-long friends, church friends, and wonderful neighbors. Her kind soul, firm belief in God, and quickness to laugh are traits she has passed onto her family. She will be dearly missed by all of her loved ones, who celebrate the fact that she is at peace with her creator. Mass of the Christian Burial will be offered on Tuesday, February 18, 11:00 A.M. at Holy Family Catholic Church in Sparta with Msgr. Terrence Stewart Celebrant. Interment in Fairplains Cemetery, Sparta. Friends may meet the family at the Funeral Home on Monday evening 5:00 until 8:00 P.M. and on Tuesday at the Church one hour prior to the Mass. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to The Sparta Women of the Moose.
