Alice Ida Roberts Stoneking, age 92, formerly of Noble County and Cambridge, Ohio, passed away peacefully November 23, 2018, with her family by her side. The daughter of Richard and Ann Andrews, Alice was born January 2, 1926, in Northampton, England. She married her husband, Bill, in 1943, and moved to the United States the following year. They were married for 27 years until his untimely death in 1970. This union produced four sons. In 1974, she married her second husband, Charles Stoneking, and she was blessed with three step-children. Before retiring in 1991, Alice served in public health services for 30 years, which included the Noble County Health Department and Caldwell Schools. After retirement, she continued her medical career by volunteering at Southeastern Ohio Regional Medical Center in Cambridge. Alice was a very faith driven person and was active in her church. She taught Sunday School for nearly 40 years. She also served her community as secretary/treasurer for the Council on Aging, as secretary for the building committee for the health building, and as a board member for T.B. and Health Association and the Cancer Society. Along with her late husband Charles in 1976, she designed the Noble County flag as part of the Bicentennial celebration.
