Alice Marie Abraham was born to Wayne and Gertrude (Schoener) Schacherer on April 8, 1933 in Lac Qui Parle County, Minnesota. She attended Hamlin Consolidated School District 28, in Lac Qui Parle County. She was united in marriage to Lambert Abraham on April 27, 1963. From this union four children were born: Bruce, Melissa, Rodney and Thomas, which they raised on the family farm near St. Leo, MN. Alice was known for her cooking and baking, and for passing those treasured recipes down to her daughter and granddaughters, especially her famous chocolate and lemon dessert. She also had a love of reading which she passed down to her children and grandchildren. Alice was very active on the family farm. She was always ready and willing to get behind the wheel of a tractor or help wherever it was needed. Alice was a member of St. Leo Catholic Church where she held various positions with the parish. Near and dear to Alice’s heart were her eleven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. She enjoyed attending all of their activities. Whether it was checking to see if they made their drive back to college safe and sound, or just to call and visit, she was always interested in what they were doing. She really enjoyed a game of rummy with them and all the laughs that went along with it.
