    Alvina Ernestine Stutz was born Aug. 17, 1908, to Jacob and Christina Schlichenmayer on their homestead at Bethune.  She was one of 12 children, all preceding her in death, except on brother, Schlichenmayer of Burlington.
     Alvina attended Prairie View school.  She was confirmed at the Hope Congregational Church on April 30, 1922.  On Aug. 17, 1927 she married William T. Stutz and they made their home in Bethune.
     Due to the dust storms and hardships of the early 30s the family moved to the Hilltop-Parker area of Colorado in 1935.  In 1939, the family moved to Southeast Denver on South Holly Street and in 1955 Alvina and Bill moved into their new home where they currently reside.
      Alvina did greenhouse work for 30 years.  Her hobbies included flowers, gardening, raising birds and handwork.
     Surviving are her husband, William; two daughters, Gladys Garlow, Denver, Colo.; Agnes McCormick, Webb City, Mo.; three sons, James Stutz, Aurora, Colo,; Fred Stutz, Denver, Colo.; Richard Stutz, Brighton, Colo.   Thirteen grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren.  Two grandsons preceded her in death.   Alvina was born and raised within three miles of her final resting place. She was dearly loved and will be missed by all who knew her.
