Alice Linda Boudny, 86, passed away Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021, at the Boudny Family Farm near Coupland after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was born on this same farm Nov. 2, 1934, to A.L. and Mary Monroe Boudny.
She attended school in Taylor.
Alice spent most of her life dedicated to caring for her father and mother in their final years. She worked hard on the farm as well. She was a great baker and made many birthday cakes for her nieces and nephews.
Alice loved animals and took care of all manner of farm animals. She cared for the chickens, guinea fowl, cows and many cats and dogs in her lifetime. She bottled fed calves and was very protective of her animals.
When her care giver took her on short walks on the porch, she always waved at the cows in the pasture. She was also a birdwatcher and went on birding trips with her sister.
Alice was a gentle woman who was loved by all who knew her. She liked watching TV and listening to country music. She will be missed.
Alice was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Alfred Boudny; and sisters, Patricia Bryan, Dorothy Drozd, Gene Boudny, Irene Turner and Barbara Boudny.
She is survived by sisters, Ruth Boudny and Helen Fremin. She spent her final days with her sisters, especially her sister Ruth who put her to bed at night and got her up in the morning. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews and their children. She leaves behind many friends. Although she had no children of her own, she loved all her nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses who cared for her during her journey with Alzheimer’s. We are especially thankful for the care given to Alice over the past year by her caregiver, Erica Strait, who helped Alice with her daily routine. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Central Texas Food Bank, 6500 Metropolis Drive, Austin, Texas 78744 or any of the local animal shelters.
