Alice Viau passed away on Dec. 11, 2023. She was born on 4/15/1939 in Gilman, Colorado and was the daughter of Josie and Porfirio Padilla. Her family moved to Ignacio, Colorado and then Ogden, Utah.  She graduated from St. Joseph's High School and worked for an insurance company and Boeing before meeting her husband. She married Lt.

Alice spent the next 20 years traveling with her family living the military life. She lived in Ohio, Mississippi, Japan, Kansas City, Virginia, Germany and New York before returning to Odgen in 1981. She visited 30 countries during her travels.
