POST—Alice Ainger Post, 97, passed away April 22, 2021 in Florence, Ore., where she and her late husband, Clifford R. Post, lived for the past 30 years.
Alice was born Nov. 2, 1923 in Williams, Calif., a farming community in the Sacramento Valley.
She was the youngest child of Ray Ainger and Meda Gibson Ainger Benning.
Alice was pre-deceased by her siblings: Harold Ainger, Ruby Anderson, Ivan Ainger and Ira Ainger, all of California.
She had no children but enjoyed the love of several family members and friends who have kept in close touch with her.
Alice also leaves Charlie, a female cat she took in as a stray, and who has been her constant beloved companion these past years while living at an assisted living facility.
Alice was a very talented professional porcelain painter and instructor. Her family and friends have been the recipients of many beautiful art pieces. These past few years, she became proficient at water coloring and enjoyed gardening from her wheelchair. Her sharp mind made her a formidable adversary at cards and there wasn’t a puzzle she couldn’t conquer.
The family is very appreciative of the excellent loving care she received from the staff at New Friends in Florence, Oregon. As per her wishes, no services will be held.
Burns’s Riverside Chapel Florence Funeral Home is in charge of all arrangements.
