Alice Margaret Jorgensen Bobick was born in Winner, on March 16, 1927 and passed away on July 31, 2015 under wonderful care at the Winner Nursing Home.  Alice was the youngest of 9 children of Martin Sr. and Gertrude Jorgensen.  She was baptized, had her first communion and was confirmed at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Winner.  Her strong faith was with her throughout her entire life.

Her three year older brother Martin was her protector and very close friend.  Alice had scarlet fever at a young age and Martin would spend much time reading to her.  This strong relationship lasted a lifetime

Alice received her education in Ideal where she completed all her education except for her senior year.  At that time the Ideal High School was closed and she then finished her remaining education at Winner.  It was there that Alice met and became friends with Mary Storms who later became her sister in law.

After high school she got a job in the Tripp Co. Auditor’s office and worked there until her older sister Helen got her a job in 1946 at Farmers Union central exchange in St. Paul, MN where she worked for 30 plus years.  She worked in what they called a man’s business but moved up the ladder in promotions and sales.

In 1972 Alice married her second husband Jack Bobick and had 27 wonderful years together.  After Jack’s death, Alice remained living in St. Paul and enjoyed her many friends in MN.  In her later years Alice moved back to Winner to be closer to family.
