Alice Katherine Brogan West, 89, passed from this life Friday, December 29, 2017, at Select Specialty Hospital, Jackson.

Visitation will be 10:30am-12:00pm, with funeral services at 12:00pm, on Wednesday, January 3, 2018, at Alta Woods Baptist Church in Jackson. Graveside services will follow at 2:30pm in Lakewood Memorial Park.

Alice was a faithful member of Alta Woods Baptist Church for more than 50 years. She loved her Lord and her church family. For many years she sang in the choir and with the Joy Singers and their nursing home ministry.

A true Christian wife, mother, and grandmother, Alice was devoted to her family. She was proud of the home her husband built, and enjoyed cooking, decorating, and entertaining friends. Hers was the kitchen where her children's friends gathered after school, and her door was always open.

In her later years Alice was determined to keep her mind sharp, and made it a point to do puzzles and pencil artwork to stay mentally active.

Alice was a very strong woman, and she was a source of support and encouragement for her family during the loss of her husband and daughter. She loved to laugh and had a keen sense of humor. It can best be said that Alice simply loved life.

She was preceded in death by her husband, George Ben West, and daughter, Marsha Turner.

Survivors include daughter, Debbie West; son Stan West (Stacy); grandchildren, Kimberly West, Carter West (Lauren), Katie West Brown (Nathan), and Kelli West; and great-grandchild, Bennett West.

The family would like to express their sincerest thanks to Alice's caregiver, Ernestine Lather, for her dedicated care.
