Alice M. Cathman, 62, of Boscobel, was called home unexpectedly to her heavenly Father on Friday, Jan. 17, 2020, at the Gundersen Boscobel Hospital. 

Alice was born in Prairie du Chien, on Oct. 31, 1957, the daughter of Louis and Thelma (Curtis) Cathman. She graduated from Wauzeka School and later worked at the Opportunity Center in Prairie du Chien for many years where she developed many friendships. She also volunteered for the Healthy Heart Program at the Memorial Hospital in Prairie du Chien. She loved to travel and sightsee when given the chance. During her younger years, she loved to attend Wisconsin Badger Camp and looked forward to recreational games and crafts. One of Alice’s many gifts in life was to help others and write letters. She wrote letters for every occasion, sometimes returning a letter right after you sent her a card. Crocheting and coloring pictures were her favorite things to do in her spare time.

She is survived by her sisters, Patricia (Steve) Hyer of Prairie du Chien, Darlene Cathman of Ft. Worth, Texas, and Mary (Tom) Patterson of Alma, Mich. Alice loved being call Aunt Alice by her nieces and nephews, Lucille, Bonnie, Anne, Johnny, Landon, Brittney, Bethany, Thomas, Tyler, Angelia, Michael and Joshua. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; her sisters, Beverly and Louise Cathman; and a brother, Larry (Bonnie) Curtis.

A Memorial Service will be Saturday, Jan. 25, at 12 p.m. at the Garrity Funeral Home Chapel in Prairie du Chien, where friends may call from 10 aa.m. until the time of the service.
