Note for:   Alice Louise HESTER,   21 MAY 1919 - 9 JAN 1979         Index

Burial:   
     Place:   Oak Hill Cemetery, Taylorville, IL

Individual Note:
     Raised a Methodist, Alice was a devout Christian all her life with a remarkable faith in God and people. She attended Springfield public schools, Spfld. Junior College (now Spfld. College in Illinois) and the University of Illinois at Champaign, where she was an Alpha Phi. An excellent student, she trained for, and became, a teacher. Her first assignment was at the grade school in Salisbury, IL, between Spfld. and Petersburg.
Before she could start teaching however, she met and married Bill, then a professional musician. She met him at a dance (called a 'sock hop') at the YWCA in Spfld. He was playing bass fiddle with the band. She claimed he spun his bass and winked at her and she said to her girlfriend, "I'm going to marry that man " She did just that, but the War interrupted their early marriage. They went to many places including Cheyenne, WY and Norfolk, VA. Bill was on board a ship for Europe when VE Day came and they returned to IL.
She read voraciously and all the time and almost anything, from popular novels to mysteries. And she must have been a very good teacher. She taught in the Spfld. schools for many years and always took pains to avoid embarrassing her own children by teaching too near them in school. Eventually, she taught the first group of "gifted" 4th graders and went on to develop the Gifted Program in Spfld. She also "rescued" City Day School from near collapse. The newly-created private school had faltered for two years before she became the Director in 1970 and built it into a good school. It may have been her greatest educational accomplishment.
Late in life, alcohol became a problem for Alice and, indirectly, the cause of her death. Alice died of smoke inhalation in an accidental fire at her residence, 1040 W. Vine, Spfld, IL.
