She also volunteered as a reading tutor for Elementary Students once her own children we grown.
Ailene devotedly supported her husband, Bob, in his various church callings including: Bishop, Stake President, Mission President, and Regional Representative.
Aliene is remembered most for her infectious laughter and warm smile. She had a fun-loving, adventurous spirit that went hand-in-hand with her sensitivity for the needs of others, and for the beauty of the world around her. She enjoyed watching Westerns, listening to classical music, playing softball and appreciating art.
She and Bob would often be found visiting with family, friends, and neighbors while sitting on their front porch. They also were known for their Christ-like service in visiting the sick and the needy.
Aliene loved and cared for animals…especially dogs and horses. She was notorious for starting water fights with family and friends on a hot Summer day. She was also known to cook a great pot roast with potatoes, gravy and Yorkshire pudding.
