Alice Ann was born in Mexia, Texas on April 14, 1931 to Alice Simmonds Tidwell and Wyatt Rodney Tidwell. She died peacefully in Kerrville on May 21, 2022.
She was preceded in death by her parents and Dan Bacon, her first husband and the father of her children.
She is survived by her children , their spouses, and many grandchildren: Georgia Alice and Tim Edwards of San Angelo and their children: Rachel and Randy Thomas, Glen and Katie Edwards, Blake and Kelly Edwards, and Alice Edwards. Dan, Jr. and Lorraine Bacon. Rodney and Lynn Bacon, and their children: Walker and Page. Bill and Cindy Bacon and their daughters: Victoria, Caroline, and Anneliese. She has seven great grandchildren.
In 1938, the Tidwells moved to Alice, Texas. She graduated from Alice High School in 1948. She married Dan Bacon in 1951. They went to Galveston so he could attend the University of Texas Medical Branch. While there, Georgia Alice and Dan Junior were "Born On the Island."
Dan graduated in 1955, and they moved to Kerrville. They knew early on that they wanted to make their home in Kerrville. At a very young age, Dad had lived in far west Kerr County at an Humble Pipeline pumping camp called "Station C", and Alice Ann had visited her aunt, Gladys Simmonds, many times in Hunt. In 1956, Dad joined the United States Air Force and was stationed at Shepherd Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, Texas. Rodney was born there. They returned to Kerrville, and here came Bill. Mom and Dad both loved Kerrville and the Hill Country and lived here the rest of their lives.
Alice Ann was an all American mom, wife, homemaker, and friend. Her home was open to all, and all were always welcome. Our house was a gathering place for her friends and her children’s friends for years. She had many friends and always welcomed them into her home in good times and in bad.
Alice Ann was a born again Christian. She was dedicated to her church, served in several positions, and was a Life Member of the First Presbyterian Church in Kerrville. She was an Emmaus leader and was active with Women Aglow.
Mom was always a rock. Even after "the storm", mom never waivered from her beliefs. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and friend. Thank you, Alice Ann, for being a great example for all of us. May you rest in peace. We look forward to being with you again and sharing more of the joy that you have always brought to our lives.
