Alice Anne Buechler, 76, Minot, died on Saturday, July 11, 2015 in a Minot hospital.
Alice was born July 11, 1939 to Anton and Eva (Miller) Jundt, on the family farm in Pierce County near Berwick, ND. She attended a country school and graduated from The Christie Beauty School- Bismarck in 1960.
Alice worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Minot before attending beauty school in Bismarck, ND, where she met John Buechler. They were united in marriage on June 20, 1961 in Fulda. They had recently celebrated their 54th wedding anniversary. From this union, they had 6 childrenMike, Bruce, Tim, Laurie, Lisa and Tammy. They made their home in Minot where Alice was a stay-at-home mother until her children were of school age. Then, she spent many years as a cook at the Copper Pot Restaurant before retiring from Trinity Homes in 2005.
Alice was a member of St. Leo’s Catholic Church in Minot. She loved spending time with her family, playing bingo, gardening and fishing. She enjoyed spending time in the kitchen “whipping up” fabulous meals (Her famous meatballs, fried chicken, chocolate piesYummy) for all of her family until her health started to decline in 2010. John and Alice moved to Edgewood Vista in March of 2014. She endured a very long and challenging five years of failing health, but would always have a great smile when a visitor arrived, especially little Kayden, Riley and Zoe. They were “her sunshine” on a gloomy day. She resided at Trinity Nursing Home since November 2014.
Mom celebrated her 76th birthday with the best present anyone could receive; to be in the arms of her loving & merciful savior, Jesus Christ. Happy Heavenly Birthday MomWhat a party that must have beenWe hear you yell “BINGO” from up above!!!
