Alice Ward 83 of Mesquite NV passed  away Monday 9/2/19 from her battle with COPD & lung cancer.  She was surrounded by all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren throughout the day.  She passed peacefully that evening in her home in Mesquite with her daughter by her side.  She is survived by her brothers Donald Clapp of Palm Desert,CA, Richard Clapp of Las Vegas NV, her sister Joan Villaros of Mesquite NV, and her four Daughters Milo Burris of Las Vegas NV, Linda Gatley of Las Vegas NV., Dawndee Fox of Las Vegas NV., and Colleen Hoff of Mesquite NV. Alice was preceded in death by her son Danny Ward in 1995. Alice made many friends and enjoyed sharing stories, she had such a fantastic memory and could always recall dates and names from many years ago. She took a lot of pride in children and worked hard all her life to take care of them. She also donated every year to St. Jude Hospital, Babies and children always could make her smile. She was so thankful she was able to meet her two new great grandsons that were born 4/21/19 and 6/12/19. Christmas time won’t be the same without her, she always made her Christmas fudge for every one of her children and grandchildren, that’s a lot of fudge. She did not want a funeral because she said they were always too sad she didn’t want anyone to mourn her. We will at a later date have a memorial to celebrate her life and share our memories of her. We will try to say goodbye without being sad but no promises Mom.
