With profound sadness we announce the passing of Alice C. Dunlap. She passed away peacefully while surrounded by her husband and friends on August 5, 2019 at 90 years old.
Alice, the oldest of two children, was born on March 28, 1929 in Birmingham, Alabama to Earman and Mary Clifton. While working at the same company in Corpus Christi, she met her husband Cleo C. Dunlap. They later married in Dallas on July 14, 1962 and were married for 57 years. They spent many years together in Dallas before moving back to Corpus Christi 30 years ago.
Alice was known to be prim, prissy, polished and proper. She will always be remembered by her stylish ways and sassiness. She was truly one of a kind. She had an eye for detail and design and was very good at making all things beautiful. Alice enjoyed traveling, book clubs, and being involved in church.
Alice is preceded in death by Mary Celeste Bobo Clifton (Mother), Earman Collis Clifton (Father), Warren William Clifton (Brother) and Diane E. Goodson (Daughter).
Alice is survived by her loving husband Cleo C. Dunlap, her son William C. Benedict (Mary), 3 grandchildren: Stephen Benedict, Brody Goodson, and Bailee Berry (Matt), 2 great grandchildren: Logan & Lauren Berry, 2 nieces: Karen C. Grace and Kathy C. Hunt, and a dearest sister-in-law Virginia Clifton.
A visitation will be held for family and friends Monday August 12, 2019 from 9:30 AM. to 11:00 AM, following visitation, will be a graveside service- both held at Seaside Memorial Park & Funeral Home.
A sincere thank you to everyone at Brookdale Corpus Christi and Kindred Hospice who attended to her during her time of need. Your love, care, and compassion will never be forgotten.
