     Alice Joan Rittscher was born on July 11, 1943 to Alfred and Clara (Scott) Brodersen at Norfolk, Nebraska.  She attended Neligh High School and graduated with the Class of 1962.  She attended Wayne State College.  On July 19, 1964 she was united in marriage to Allan Rittscher at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Neligh.  They made their home South of Clearwater.  She worked at the Antelope Clerk of District Court, she also worked at Coast-to-Coast in Neligh.  She became Allan’s helper in many ways by cooking many meals, handy pack coolers, and taking care of sickly animals.  Alice enjoyed many things: Diet Pepsi, slot machines, trips to Vegas, camping, and watching football at all levels.  Alice enjoyed playing pranks and may have involved a few fireworks. Spending time with her grandkids and spoiling them was the best thing in her life.  Alice was a member of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and a reader.
