Alice was born May 14, 1942, to Bertie and Blanche Berry in Bridger, MT. She was the second youngest of 11 children. She graduated from Bridger High School in 1960. After graduation, she moved to Great Falls, MT. Alice married Dennis Miller in 1962. They had two children together, Todd and Kimberly. They later divorced.

As a single mother, she pursued her career in nursing. She graduated from MSU Bozeman with her BSN. She worked as a Pediatric Nurse Specialist at Benefis Healthcare for 30 years. She was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserves. Alice had many career accolades including a one month medical mission to Tanzania, Africa for her 75th birthday.

For the last four years of her life, Alice was the greatest cheerleader for the Great Falls High Bison Football team. Come rain, snow, freezing weather, or mileage, you could find Alice in the grandstands cheering on her great-grandson Brayden and his teammates.

Alice will be remembered most for her wisdom, her strength, her guidance, her kind encouraging words, her infectious laugh, her witty sense of humor, and above everything, her love for her family.
