Aliece was born on August 4th, 1965 at Edwards Airforce Base, CA, to father Forest “Buzz” Townsend and mother Thelma Townsend, who both predeceased her.

Aliece married Mark Harris on August 11th, 1988. After growing up in Zion, Ill, the Harris’s moved to Elmwood, NE in January of 1994. There the couple lived and raised their two children.

Aliece worked in Cosmetology throughout her adult life and then retired in 2012, shortly after her diagnoses of Multiple Myoloma. Aliece’s heart was full of love and she cared for everyone more than she cared for herself. Her home was always open. She loved historical romance novels and binge watching her favorite shows and movies. Her most cherished moments were watching her three grandsons grow up. She remained strong and selflessly fought until her body couldn’t fight anymore.

Aliece is survived by her husband and children, her three grandson’s, as well as her sisters, Cathy Kuebler, Kristi Knoke (Bill); her brother, David Kuebler; in-laws Curtis (Dorothy) Harris, Rodney (Lori) Harris, and numerous nieces and nephews.
