Obituary for Alice Noreine Simons

Alice Noreine Simons, 96, returned to her heavenly home, on February 11, 2019, in Lewistown, Montana.

Alice was born in Roundup, Montana on December 31, 1922 to Noreine and Bill Ryan. Alice attended Eastern Montana State Normal School in Billings, Montana and received her 2-year degree in education in 1942 and her bachelor’s degree in elementary education in 1965. Alice married the love of her life, Kenneth Morefield, on June 13, 1942. Alice and Kenneth had two children, Noreine Brown (Morefield) and Vivian Andary (Morefield). Kenneth passed away at a young age, leaving Alice widowed. Alice was blessed to marry again on March 1, 1968 to Al Simons and gained a daughter, Lori Walking Eagle (Simons) and two sons, Bobby Simons and Jeff Simons.

Alice was a beloved member of her community and touched many lives. She taught school in Central Montana for 30+ years and after retiring, continued to babysit kids, well into her old age. She loved each of her students and kids that she babysat. Alice often said, “If you love what you do for a living, it isn’t work.”

Alice was a devout Christian who loved her Lord and Savior. She was a faithful member of the Assembly of God church and loved many members of the congregation. She led an exemplary life by not only talking the talk, but truly walking the walk.

Prior to her passing, Alice wrote, “Please, please don’t grieve for me. I’ve lived [96] years and 98% of it was good. I have loved and been loved by my family, my husbands, my grandchildren, and my dog[s]. I’ve had a fabulous career and loved my work.”

Alice is survived by her children: Noreine (James) Brown, Vivian (Gary) Andary, and Lori (Allie) Walking Eagle; her grandchildren, Kenneth Brown, Kevin Brown, Matthew Brown, Dustin Brown, Starr Brown, Heidi (Mark) Ambrosius, and Lisa (Dave) Doget; her siblings, Mary Ruff, Helen (John) Mears, Celia (Wayne) Chilten, and Delia Turley; many great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and many other children that she loved very deeply.

Alice is preceded in death by both of her beloved husbands, Kenneth Morefield and Al Simons; and two brothers-in-law, George Ruff and Turla Turley; several close friends and many students that touched her life as much as she touched theirs.

A Funeral Service and celebration of Alice’s life will be held on Friday, February 22, 2019, 1:00 pm, at the Creel Funeral Home Chapel. A private viewing and burial will take place prior for immediate family.
