Sarah Alice Earles Lindsey

Sarah Alice Earles Lindsey, 81, a resident of Stills X Roads Community, passed away at her home on May 17, 2023. Funeral services will be held on Sunday May 21, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. from Macedonia Baptist Church with her nephews, Rev. Donnie Earles, Rev. Kenny Earles, and Rev. Ronald Earles officiating. Burial will follow in Macedonia Cemetery with Gray Funeral Home directing.

Little Alice as she was known by many was the youngest of 12 children. She was babied and spoiled by her many older siblings and of course her parents. She lost her sight at age 12 and according to her, that was her biggest blessing because she met her beloved husband while attending Talladega School for the Blind. She would tell everyone that this is the life God gave her and she wouldn’t change it for the world because it blessed her with her precious children and grandchildren. Little Alice was an inspiration to all who knew her with the purest heart and only kind words and prayers for everyone. She has influenced many generations during her time on this earth and her memory will continue to live on through us.
