Alice Leigh Kramer (Miller)

November 11, 1926 — August 5, 2020

Alice Leigh (Miller) Kramer, 93, a lifelong Montrose County Resident, had her prayers answered when called home to her Lord on August 5, 2020 at Heidi’s Chateau in Montrose.  Alice was born November 11, 1926 in Olathe to Vernon and Vertie Miller. She attended Olathe schools, graduating from Olathe High School in 1946.  Alice married John Albert Kramer Jr. in May of that year.  She attended Our Lady of Fatima and St. Mary Catholic Churches.

Alice dedicated her life to helping John with the family farm and raising three sons.  She had many wonderful times serving her church as a cook to resident priests, Alter and Rosary Society, Eucharistic Minister and greeter. Serving in the community for Cub Scouts and 4-H, Montrose Hospital volunteer, as well as singing with Sweet Adeline’s.  Her greatest joy in life was her church, family and playing cards with her friends.  Alice was notorious for her famous expressions “Holy Balls” and “Oh Whores”.

Alice is survived by two sons, Gerald (Margie) Kramer of Montrose and Randy (Paula) Kramer of Olathe, grandchildren Connie (Scott) Barber, John Kramer, Greg (Maria) Kramer, Tracy (Tom) Koch, Joe (Katie) Kramer and Kris (Maria) Kramer and 7 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband John Jr., two sons John III and Stephen, granddaughter Gayle and great granddaughter Casandra, twin brother Alvin Miller, and sisters Esther Krill and Betty Mills.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.  Crippin Funeral Home is handling arrangements. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to Hope West in her honor. We also would like to thank the staff at Heidi’s and Hope West for their extraordinary care.
