Alice Zoeller went home to her Lord on Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, following a long illness. She was born on Nov. 5, 1924, in North Little Rock, Ark., where she graduated from North Little Rock High School. She earned her degree in education from Bethany College in Oklahoma and then returned to North Little Rock to teach for several years. She later accepted a position with the Morenci, Ariz., school district and then eventually relocated to Kingman, where she taught English at Kingman Junior High School from 1969 until retirement in 1989.
She was admired for her tough, no-nonsense teaching style, which was appreciated by many former students who came back to visit Mrs. Zoeller and tell her that, because of her, they had succeeded in high school and/ or college.
Alice was also well known for her generosity as she supported numerous charities, especially her church and animal causes. She was an active member of the Kingman Area School Retirees Association and held the office of president at one time.
Alice was preceded in death by her parents, Jess and Zora Martin; sisters, Birdie McCaul and Jeanette Wilson; and one brother, George B. Martin.
She is survived by one nephew, John R. Inman, and a great niece, Carleen Richard, of Holiday Island, Ark.
She will be buried in her hometown of North Little Rock at Edgewood Memorial Park Cemetery. No services are being planned.
