Born in Port Neches, Texas, on August 27, 1934, she was the daughter of Hubert Wesley Scott, Sr. and Ethel May (Eygabroad) Scott. Alice was a great businesswoman. She was a pioneer, working in the auto industry. Alice was one of the first women to manage several auto parts departments for many dealerships in the Southeast Texas area. She volunteered with Orange Christian Services for 6 years. Alice was a very active member of First United Methodist Church in Orange. After Hurricane Andrew in 1991, she and her husband, Rock, became actively involved in The United Methodist Committee on Relief. They dedicated 17 and a half years to helping the people of Dulac, Louisiana. Alice enjoyed working all types of puzzles, which helped to keep her mind active and sharp. She loved all of her family dearly, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Alice never missed a family member’s birthday and she always had a card. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing and loving her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Hubert and Ethel Scott; her son, Charlie Rothrock; her brother, Edward Scott; and her granddaughter, Laura Allred.
She is survived by her loving husband, Robert “Rock” Rothrock; her children, Betty Bourgeois and husband Lyn of Vidor, Jerry Mathis and wife Debbie of Mauriceville, Linda Allred and husband Bruce of La Marque, Debra Stagner and husband Hershel of Orange, and Barbara Vincent and husband “Butch” of Nederland; her siblings, Hubert Scott, Jr. of Port Acres and Nancy Daniels of Silsbee; as well as her 11 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Sabine Tower 4th floor in Baptist Hospital; the nurses and staff at Harbor Hospice; the staff of Best Hospice for their support and care; the staff of Synergy Home Care; and the Claybar family and staff.
