The Story family was originally from Boston, Massachusetts. Alice cherished her years in Skagway, Alaska with her brothers Dean & Fred. Her first husband was Louis Selmer Sr., who proceeded her in death in 1959. They treasured their family time with their only son Louis Selmer Jr.Her grand children Dean Selmer, Michelle Hogg & Lisa Steilen affectionately nicknamed her “Goose”. She had 40 memorable years on Bainbridge Island, WA with family & her second husband Robert Selmer (who proceeded her in death in 2003). Alice lived in Kirkland-Bothell for 16 years, and lived independently until she was 94. Alice treated her daughters-in-laws and “grand” sons/daughters-in-laws as her own children.
