Elsie Lee (Jordon) Hodges, 90, died of natural causes on Feb. 5, 2019. A private family service will be held at a later date when mom’s ashes will be scattered, along with dad’s, so that they can be together again.

Mom graduated from Alpine High School in 1947. She was crowned Band Sweetheart 1946-47. At 16 she moved into an apartment with her longtime friend “Sixy.” They both worked as ushers at the movie theatre. She was working at Sul Ross State University when she met dad. After 63 years of marriage, dad still called her his bride.

Standing five feet tall, she was fondly called “Tiny Granny,” but everyone knew she was far stronger than she appeared. She was an amazing seamstress. She made both her daughter’s wedding dresses and her granddaughter’s prom dress, as well as countless clothes and costumes. Mom’s cooking was the source of many happy family memories. After all our combined years of cooking, none of us have yet to make fried chicken as good as hers.

She is survived by two daughters Pamela Hodges Snyder of Montrose, Colorado and Penelope Lale of Portland, Oregon; six grandchildren Lindsey Wolf of Michigan, Whitney Shelton (J.T.) of Montrose, Sam Snyder (Megan) and Seth Snyder of Montrose/Fort Collins, Meg Lale and Russell Lale of Portland; along with four great grandchildren and sister Jan Frolik of Grand Junction, Colorado.

There is no picture because she hated having her picture taken.

She will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Bucks fall to Hawks in Quarterfinals

Leftfielder Travis Ruckman had assistant coach Hugh Morrissey fired up during game one of the Regional Quarterfinals on May 17 in Midland. His third inning two-run single gave Alpine an early lead against Wall who went on to score 35 runs in two wins over Alpine.
