My cousin, my sister. will always be part of me and what makes me, me; because of all the good things she planted into me. Hug Mom, Virgie and Jesus for me. Save a spot next to you for me, we will enjoy telling lots of stories. We will be happy, in good health with no sorrows.

Mrs. Huff was one of my favorite high school teachers. She was not afraid to laugh with us.

My sincere sympathy to the family of Alice Huff. Mrs. Huff was a teacher at WHS when I was a student. I graduated in 1963.

To the family, my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you be comforted by the "Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort" (2 Cor 1:3) that one day, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28, 29) May these promises from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

Uncle Joe and Family,
Sherri and I extend our deepest sympathy to you and your immediate family members on the loss of Alice. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time.

Leo H. and Sherri E. Grothaus, Jr. Jan 7 2018 12:00 AM

Joe and Eddie, I'm so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful teacher and will be remembered by many of her students that way. I'm so glad we connected later in life to find we are related through the Presley family. What a surprise. We shared many good stories and memories. I pray God gives your strength and comfort in knowing you did a good job as her caretaker, Joe.

Always wondering where she went as she was my typing/ shorthand teacher back in 1966 & 1967 ? Enjoyed the class still remember some of the brief forms after using it few years only since I have been a Hairdresser many years 1977 till present but now only very few hours

My sympathy on your mother's passing. She was my high school typing/shorthand teacher and I remember her fondly. My mother-in-law (Mary West) also babysat you and your brother when your mother first came to Waterloo until you were old enough to attend school. Maybe you remember her. God bless your family at this time.

Alice E. West Dec 28 2017 12:00 AM

I have been thinking about her lately. She was a friend who I lost touch with, but she helped me several times. I won't forget her. My children and I lived across the street (on Mobile Street) from her and you boys for a year in the early 60s after I had lost my husband. She will not be forgotten.
