Alice M. Bissell Feb. 22, 1928 - Feb. 3, 2019

Alice M. Bissell, age 90, of Marion passed away at 4:42 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, at Lutheran Hospital of Indiana in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Alice was born at home on Feb. 22, 1928, to Frank T. Veach, Sr. and Ina H. (Keister) Veach in Danville, Illinois. She was not able to attend high school due to the time that she grew up in and this is why she enjoyed all the education that she could grasp. She later attended Ivy Tech College and was proficient in English.

Alice worked at Anaconda in the 50s, the Salvation Army Church in the 80s and the Grant-Blackford County Mental Health in the 90s. She enjoyed bowling, reading and playing miniature golf. She loved spending time with her family and loved cooking for them, especially making her fried chicken, pork chops and scalloped potatoes!

Alice is survived by her three sons, Timothy S. Bissell of Marion, Kelly W. Bissell of Marion and Stephen A. (Debbie Powers) Bissell and their family in Worcester, Massachusetts; several grandchildren, Kelly’s son, Timothy W. Bissell of Fort Wayne and Alice’s great-grandson, Bently Bissell, also of Fort Wayne, Kayleigh and Ryan Bissell of Charleston, Massachusetts; Stephen D. Bissell and John Bissell, both of Charleston, Massachusetts, George S. Bissell of Worcester, Massachusetts; nieces and nephews, Tami (David) Holzhauser of Des Moines, Iowa, Susan (Jim) Tamomas of Vancouver, Washington, Michael (Belle) Veach of Beaverton, Oregon, Rhonda (David) Damerau of Littleton, Colorado, Melissa Elleson of Portland, Oregon, Gregory Veach of Hillsboro, Oregon, and Linda Ordway of Portland, Oregon.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Frank T. Veach, Jr. and William H. Veach; two sons, David F. Bissell and Karl L. Bissell; and her only daughter, Melodee S. Bissell.

Friends and family may call from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019, at Raven-Choate Funeral Home, 1202 W. Kem Road, Marion, Indiana. Funeral services will follow at 1 p.m.
