THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Issue Date: January 15, 2014
Alice (Campbell) Prescott, 82, passed away Sunday morning, Jan. 5 with her family at her side.
Born in Marinette to Elizabeth Welch Campbell and Henry Clayton Campbell, she was a graduate of Northwestern University with a B.A. in music education. She taught the blind in Chicago for many years before marrying Loren Prescott and starting a family.
She lived a full life of travel, golf, sailing and family and raced sailboats across Lake Michigan before she could drive. She was an exceptional cook, creative seamstress, quilter, knitter, enjoyed bridge and other board games and always won! She will be remembered for her generosity, wit, dedication and strength.
She is survived by three children, Karen Stears, Barbara Prescott and Loren Prescott; a son-in-law, Dr. Robert Stears; a stepson, Steve Prescott; six grandchildren; two nephews and a niece.
Michelotti-Sawyers Mortuary assisted the family with arrangements. Donations can be made to the American Foundation for the Blind or the American Cancer Society.
