Alice Maxine Reeves

BURROWS — Alice Maxine Plant Daly Reeves, 84, Burrows, died at 7:34 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, at Indiana University Arnett Hospital, Lafayette.

Born Nov. 16, 1927, on the family farm in Pittsburg, she was the daughter of George and Mary Marie Hazelgrove Plant. Alice graduated from Thornton Fractional High School in Calumet City, Ill., in 1945. In 1949, she completed her four year registered nurse’s training at Wesley Memorial Hospital School of Nursing, Northwestern University. In Chicago, on Oct. 8, 1949, she was married to World War II Marine John C. Daly. They were married for 12 years in San Jose, Calif., where Alice began her lifelong career as a dedicated registered nurse and a devoted mother.

In 1960, Alice and children returned to Indiana where Alice completed an inspiring tenure in psychiatric nursing, retiring from Logansport State Hospital after 32 years.

Enjoying retirement, Alice truly celebrated life each day by supporting and shaping the lives of her children and grandchildren. She also gave gladly of her time as a sister of the Oddfellow Rebekah Lodge and shared kindness and caring with her lodge sisters for many years. She loved knitting, and many friends and relations have mementos of warm sweaters, afghans and brightly colored dish cloths.

Surviving are her sister, Louise Hall, West Lafayette; former husband, John C. Daly, Portland, Ore.; her children, Patricia Terry and husband, Roger, of Rockfield, Timothy Daly, of Andrews, and Karen Daly Carlsen, Portland, Ore.; grandchildren, Kimberly Daly Hitze and husband, Neal, Lafayette, Christopher Daly, Delphi, April Gilsinger and husband, Jessy, Clayton, N.C., Dr. Andrea Terry-Wenner and husband, Brad, New Bern, N.C., Autumn Terry and fiancé, Leonard Koyiet, Lafayette, and Adrienne Terry and David Kirk, Chico, Calif. Alice received her first great-grandchild on Aug. 13, 2012, Lilliana Brielle Wenner, New Bern, N.C.

A consummate professional, Alice donated her body to Indiana University School of Science. Memorial contributions may be offered to the IU Medical School of Science and Research. 

In parting, “It’s not the breaths we take, but the moments that take our breath away.”
