Dear Nelson Family - Memories of Alice and Carroll Roger are all full of fun and joy! It's been our privilege to know them and their wonderful children.. The Nelson home was home to a lot of children other than their own. The Welcome Mat was always out. And we all took advantage of it. Alice is missed by all of us who have known her. Her cheerful greeting followed by her happy stories of family will always be missed here at Capital Manor. Peace an Comfort to the special Nelson Family.
Our Love to You. Jim and Maggie Garrett

I am blessed to have spent much of my growing-up years around Alice and Carroll through my friendship with Craig. Alice was like a second mother. I have always admired her energy and enthusiasm for everyone around her. And a great cook!
Coleen and I have all the Nelson kids and their families in our hearts. Peace and grace to all of you.
To Alice Ann’s Family - our condolences to you. We are so sorry to find out about Alice Ann’s passing. She was a wonderful woman. She will be missed. We always enjoyed our visits with her.
Clark! I will miss seeing you two together at Capital Manor. Your mom was always so cheerful and welcoming—lucky you to have her for so many years. I know you have so many memories that make you smile!
Alice also worked at South Salem High School in the Guidance Center and that’s where she mentored me in 1965 for one of my classes. After my college, marriage, and return to Salem, we reacquainted at First Presbyterian Church. I always enjoyed visiting with your sweet mother and her presence in my life will always be fondly remembered. Blessings to you as you fondly hold her in your heart.
As a Tri-Delt member myself, I enjoyed knowing Alice for many years.
Dear family of Alice, Alice was a very lovely neighbor of mine for several years before she went into Manor Care. I so appreciated her friendship to me. Ruth Holme
Oh Alice, you will be so missed. You had passion, zest and energy to keep up with the grandchildren and in touch with everyone important to you. You made everyone feel special and valued. Your role as the leader in the Nelson clan is legendary and you will be sorely missed. The angels gained a fine one, our hearts are heavy but know you will keep on keeping everyone on their toes, and best behavior!!
Alice Nelson was always a "fashion statement", with her clip-on earrings matching each outfit. But more than that, she was beautiful on the inside ! Alice had such a genuine smile, and filled any room with love and joy. I met Alice in 1980,when we both joined Chapter AB of P.E.O. Over these forty years, I have watched her and admired all of her energy, beauty, and grace. There will be a P.E.O. scholarship in her honor, and Alice would love knowing she is again helping women continue their educational opportunities.
We knew Carroll and Alice through First Presbyterian Church, and we so looked forward to our weekly hug from Alice! She had a droll sense of humor and was such fun to be around. We're praying for the Nelson family as you deal with this loss during the Christmas season.
