Alice Dominguez Rodriguez, 84, of Morrison, Colorado, passed away peacefully at home on December 5, 2021. She was born to Manuela Dominguez on June 21, 1937. Alice was also known as “Pepi”; a nickname she inherited due to her energetic personality.
Alice was raised in Marfa, Texas and graduated from Marfa High School in 1957 and immediately went on to work as a Legal Secretary in Marfa for 16 years. In 1973, she moved to Fort Davis, Texas and worked as a Secretary at the Jeff Davis County Courthouse Sheriff's Office. She retired in 1993; however, she continued to stay busy with other jobs and as the local Avon lady until she moved to Colorado in 2014.
She enjoyed helping other people and stayed heavily involved in her community and church. There was nothing that Alice wouldn’t do to help someone in need. Many who knew her will tell you she was a kind, loving and extremely generous person. She loved to bake and was a wonderful cook. Everyone loved her homemade tortillas and lemon meringue pie. She also loved to read and was an avid coin collector.
Alice met Toribio Rodriguez in 1959 at the USO in Marfa. It was love at first sight. Toribio and Alice married on March 9, 1963. Together they raised one child, Monica Rodriguez Naegele.
