Preceded in death by her parents, a brother; Francis Jester, a son; Clay Alan Marson and a great granddaughter; Elaine Grubbs. She is survived by: four daughters, Terry Goforth and spouse Sonny, Kathryn Grubbs and spouse Charles, Cheryl Marson and Sandra Adams; one sister, Wilma Hyde; four grandchildren, Chris Grubbs, Mark Goforth, Brandi Sambe and Keri Marson; seven great grandchildren: Karl, Alison and Maegyn Grubbs, Nafissah, Khadijah, Maryam and Ibrahim Sambe; and numerous cousins and other relatives. Alene worked several jobs in her adult life including; waitress, factory worker, retail sales and her most important job, mother. After her divorce, she raised all five of her children by herself...which was not an easy task. There were times when she would do without things she needed, like new work shoes, to insure that her children were fed and had a roof over their heads. We would be doing an injustice if we did not mention the help her sister, Wilma gave her during this time. In her earlier years, she loved to go dancing to country music played by her cousins’ band. This love for country music lasted throughout her entire life. She also loved flowers, all kinds and colors! Every holiday one of her family members would give her some kind of flower or plant. This led to quite a collection, but she could tell you the name of each one of them. Most recently while in rehab, her family would take turns pushing her in her wheelchair through the gardens. This made her day complete. We can’t forget her love of races. Many weekends she spent in front of the TV watching NAS Car races! She even coherenced some of her grandchildren to take her to local racetracks and watch those races. She always had her favorite drivers and had been heard saying, “Get ‘em” many times. Her walk with God was a quiet one. She would let you know she had read the entire bible and would correct your scripture interpretation if necessary. We know she is looking down on us today and saying, “ I didn’t want such a big turnout for my funeral. After all, I’m quite shy.”
