Alice May Taylor Howard, age 89, of 3317 Longdale Station Road, Clifton Forge, Virginia went to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, September 17, 2020 at her residence.

She was born May 1, 1931 in Alleghany County, Virginia to the late Hazel John Taylor and Minor Ellen Campbell Taylor. She was a talented seamstress and quilter. She collected bells and her home was filled with hundreds of pictures of her loved ones. She was a member of the Advent Christian denomination where she served as a member of the women’s circles.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 71 years, Robert George “Spud” Howard Jr.; an infant son; her favorite aunt, Mary Deeds; and many friends.

She is survived by three daughters, Alice Carroll and husband Kenny of Clifton Forge, Linda Walton and husband Dickie of Clifton Forge, and Brenda Simpson and husband Charles “Butch’ Simpson of Roanoke; a son, Robert George “Robbie” Howard III and wife Heather of Covington; nine grandchildren, Kacy Carroll and wife Liza, Steven Carroll and wife Gina Adrales, Rickie Walton and wife Lesa, Cristy Cahoon and fiancé Mike Sheppard, Tiffany Johnson and husband Jeffrey, B. J. Simpson and wife Teri, Josh Howard and partner Elizabeth Catte, Matt Howard and wife Laura Brana, and Zack Puckett and wife Connie; ten great grandchildren, Zach Carroll, Chelsie Cahoon, Jordan Carroll, Cortnie Walton, Maegan Herwald and husband Hunter, Patrick Cahoon, Cristen Walton, Bryce Carroll, Rowan Puckett, and Clark Johnson; three great-great-grandchildren, Daisy Walton, Lucas Herwald, and Parker Walton; two brothers, Johnny Taylor, Jerry Taylor and wife Darlene; a sister, Mary Thurston; special neighbors, Susan and Jeremy Curtis; and a number of nieces and nephews.

In keeping with her wishes, her body has been cremated. A memorial service for both Spud and Alice will be held at a later time.

The family would like to thank the entire team of caregivers at Mountain Regional Hospice.

Marshall and I send sympathy to the family of Alice and Spud Howard. Both of them were special friends of ours. I grew up in Alleghany County and have know them all of my life. We became special friends with them through the Advent Christian Church (Lone Star and Central) and especially at Family Camp meetings at the Blowing Rock Campground, Blowing Rock, NC. Our daughter, Shawn Walker, met both of them their and loved them, too. We send love and prayers to everyone, especially Rev. Kenny Carroll. We know that they both loved the Lord and are in His care.
