Alice Perkins, 82, of Beallsville, Ohio passed away Tuesday, January 10, 2023 in the Arbors at Woodsfield surrounded by family. She was born October 19, 1940 near Armstrongs Mills, Ohio, a daughter of the late George and Goldia Willison Graham.
Alice was a member of the Armstrongs Mills Church of Christ, the New Castle Homemakers, the Monroe Singers, and the former Sweet Adelines. For many years she served as a precinct worker for the Belmont County Board of Elections in Wayne Township and as recently as this past November’s election she was at her job from early morning until the last votes were cast. A lady of many talents and interests, Alice loved to sing and she enjoyed cooking and baking. She will be remembered for her delicious desserts like pumpkin pie and a family favorite, her famous cooked apples.
