BANDERA, Texas ---- Alice Abrell Slinkard, 101, of Bandera, Texas, passed away Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2004 at her residence.
Born Aug. 30, 1903 in Sandborn, she was the daughter of Clarence Henry and Louise Schwartz Hagemier.
She lived in Sandborn until her marriage in 1929 to Otto Abrell when she moved to Linton. He preceded her in death in 1952. Her second marriage was to William Slinkard in 1960. He passed away in 1968. She was employed as a nurse's aide from 1953-63. She moved to Bandera in 1996.
The two things she couldn't live without were the beauty shop on Thursdays and the daily pot of coffee, which she claims is the secret to a long life.
