Alice Amelia Davis Parry


Fri, Dec 27th, 2002
Posted in Obituaries

Alice Amelia Davis Parry, 99, died Dec. 18, 2002 at the Good Samaritan Care Center in Preston, Minn.

The granddaughter of Welsh and Norwegian immigrants, Mrs. Parry was born on April 29, 1903, in Lime Springs, Iowa, to Hayes Benjamin Davis and Nellie Dahly Davis. After attending the Kahler School of Nursing in Rochester, Mrs. Parry worked for the Mayo brothers and later served as a private nurse for various families on the west coast. Alice Parry was a witty, generous, high-spirited, progressive person who squandered nothing and appreciated the simplest gifts of life, even when her life took harsh turns. Those of us who knew her are fortunate indeed.

Mrs. Parry is survived by a brother, George Watts of Springfield, Missouri; four granddaughters: Nikki Dowd of Morrisville, North Carolina; Paula Mara and Wendy Savage of Grapevine, Texas; and Amy Root of Austin, Texas; ten great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert William Parry; their daughter, Gwen Anne Hoffman Root; a brother, Myron; as well as three sisters: Katherine, Verna Mae, and Jessie.

A memorial service in Preston will be announced next spring.
