Alice was born Saturday, December 27, 1924 to Arthur and Ida (Treick) Klemme. She was baptized on April 1, 1925 at Bethany Reformed Church and was confirmed on July 2, 1939. She grew up on the family farm by Scotland and attended Nellis Country School. She graduated from Scotland High School and Brown Beauty School. Alice owned and operated her own hair salon on Main Street in Scotland for 50 years. She was an avid sports fan, attending nearly all home basketball games. She enjoyed bowling and bowled on a league for many years. Her gardens were simply beautiful, featuring red roses and her yard was nominated as yard of the month. She enjoyed the holidays, being one of the first homes to elaborately decorate her yard for Christmas. She loved her pets. She played a big part in planning and organizing the Scotland All School Reunion. Alice passed away on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at the Good Samaritan Society of Scotland, having attained the age of 87 years, 4 months and 20 days.
Alice is survived by one brother, Paul Pete Klemme: several nieces: Phyllis (Don) Jerke, Vera (Allen) Bierle, Paula (George) Bauder, GayLynn (Ken) Konrad, and Wilma Estes.
Alice was preceded in death by her parents, special friend Frank Tuffs, brother Elmer (Ella) Klemme, sisters Ruth Klemme and Lola (Otto) Jenner, sister-in-law Esther Klemme, and nephew Allen Klemme.
I grew up next door to the Klemme's . There were always good treats and fun when we would visit. I do very much remember the first Santa and Reindeer outdoor decorations she put out and how afraid of it I was..I would push my younger sister ahead of me to go check them out.. My sympathy to the family of Alice.

Paula, GayLynn and families. My sympathy to all of you for the loss of Alice. She was a very good person and she will be missed. She made many women in Scotland look their very best for many occasions. She gave me my very first beauty shop perm when she still had her shop at the back of the barber shop. Her active life was taken from her too early here on earth, but she can now resume those good times that will go on forever, as will your fond memories of her. May she rest in peace.

Our condolences to the Alice Klemme family. We lost track of Alice after Pat's Mother died - Miriam Soukup. I wish I had known Alice was still alive - I would have visited with her when we are in SD. Alice and Miriam were such good friends. I went to Alice as a teenager; Alice did my hair for our wedding. I often thought about Alice. I feel so sorry that I never stopped to visit with her.
