With heartfelt sympathy we announce the transition of Alice Marie Kimble Young of Gadsden, who traded time for eternity Thursday, October 8, 2020 at the age of 66.

Alice Marie Kimble Young was born July 15, 1954 in Gadsden, Alabama. She was the youngest child of Howard and Marie Rogers Kimble. She fell asleep in death on October 8, 2020 at her residence, surrounded by her caring family.

Alice was educated in the public school system of Gadsden, Alabama, where she was known for her love of fashion, her energetic personality and her natural beauty.

In 1986 Alice married her husband of 33 years, Allen B. Young, Jr., and together they created a loving and vibrant home for their family.

Alice was known for her passion for helping others. It was this passion that lead her to pursue a career in the health care industry. For more than forty years she gave of herself professionally in service to others. In 2013 she retired after 13 years of service to the State of Alabama Corrections Department. 

Alice spent much of her leisure time cooking and sewing. She was an excellent cook and was known for organizing family gatherings that not only her love of family, but also her love of neighbor was most visible. After each family gathering she made sure that hearty servings of her delicious meals were sent to the elderly in her community.

Alice also found great joy spending time with her grandchildren. It was very common to see her face and hear her voice from the bleachers of their sporting events. She was not at all shy about telling the officials what a terrible call they had just made on one of her grandchildren. She also looked forward to family trips to the beach. In spite of her family's insistence that she take a break from cooking while on vacation, she insisted on preparing meals that she always served with a hefty dose of her unique sense of humor.

Alice was affiliated with several churches throughout her life and later found a church home at New Destiny Church in Gadsden. She found great pleasure in reading the bible and became an avid bible student. She was involved in many church activities, including Toys for Tots and was in charge of the kitchen ministry which she dearly loved.

Alice was preceded in death by her parents, her oldest brother Alvery Williams, her brother/nephew, Howard Keith Kimble, and her first grandchild, Marquavious Tyshun Porter.

Alice leaves to cherish her memory her loving husband, Allen B. Young, Jr; daughters, Jacqueline Gaddis (Tracy), LaRitha Sheffield (Larry), Alicia Moore (Gerry) all of Gadsden, and Anitra Kimble of Decatur, Mississippi; sons, Larry Williams, Jr. of Gadsden and Jiovianti Young of Mississippi; brothers, Harold Kimble (Grace) and Danny Kimble (Pat) of Gadsden; sister, Annette Borden (Louis) of Gadsden; grandchildren, Haleigh, Kinleigh, Cameron, Tameah, Kelcei, Karleigh, Malik, Tray and Kelece; aunt, Jewel Hall (Percy); sister-in-law, Clara Williams of St. Louis, MO; chosen son Tony Mathews of Anniston; chosen daughter Betty Lynn Walker of Gadsden; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Alice leaves many rich and cherished memories for those of us who love her. May we always remember her loving smile and her spunky, witty spirit.

My condolences to your family. Its been a long time since I saw Alice, and Jackie and LaRitha were just little girls (probably too young to remember me). I have fond memories of Alice and remember her smile and laugh. May she rest in peace in the loving arms God.
