Alice Nellie Landes passed away in her home surrounded by her children on Sunday, October 20, 2019 of natural causes.

Born March 13,1927 to Rudolph and Myrtle Rieder weighing just 4 pounds 4 oz. On a stormy night she came into the world prematurely at home on their farm in Williston, North Dakota with no doctor in attendance. It’s amazing she survived but this was only a precursor to the tenacity she showed throughout her life.

She attended grade school at North Missouri Ridge and Garden Valley and graduated from Williston High School in 1945.

After graduating Alice went to Portland, Oregon and worked at Kaiser Company Inc. shipyards in Vancouver, Washington. In the fall she returned to Williston and worked at the Press-Graphic newspaper as a secretary and local society reporter.

On November 23, 1946, Alice married Gail Landes whom she had known since she was a child. They were married in the First Methodist church in Williston. In 1959 they moved to Missoula, Montana and lived there for the next 57 years. In 2016 Alice, then a widow moved to Provo, Utah.

She was a very happy person and enjoyed bookkeeping, baking, sewing, homemaking, gardening, and gathering family histories. She was a very hard worker, very resourceful and resilient, and very generous and thoughtful which was a great example and legacy to her family.

In 1961 she was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and remained an active and faithful member for the rest of her life. She had a strong and deep love for Jesus Christ and his gospel.

She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Ruth (Vernon) Salmeier, brother Robert (Harriet), and husband Gail. She is survived by her 5 children; Richard of Missoula, MT., Carolyn (Kory) Katseanes of Provo, UT., Elaine (Kirk) Russell of Pleasant Grove, UT., Tom (Denise) of Salt Lake City, UT., Maryann (Kelly) Carter of South Jordan, UT., her 18 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Her family expresses their deepest thanks and appreciation to all her dear friends and neighbors who loved, watched over, and served her while living in Missoula and Provo.

A graveside service will be held on Monday, October 28th at 12:30 p.m. at the Western Montana State Veterans Cemetery in Missoula where she will be buried next to her beloved husband. To express condolences visit

Alice and her family wish to express their deepest thanks and appreciation to all at Legacy Assisted Living and to Hospice for their kindness and gentle care and to all who were her friends there. Thank you for making her life easier and happier.

We wanted to deliver our condolences in person but could not make it on Monday. Our deepest sympathies for your loss. Alice was a great lady who endured well. Working with her in the Family History Center was a learning experience for me She was an expert researcher among other talents and abilities in that area. Many ancestors will be happy to meet her and will be grateful for all the work she has done for them. She loved her family and expressed how proud she was of all of you. We loved having her for as a friend. May you find peace and comfort. Our love and sympathy---Grace and Paula Onstad

Please accept my sincerest sympathies in the loss of your mother, grandmother & friend to many. I was in NYC when Elaine left me the message. Unfortunately yesterday's weather kept me from attending the service. Alice & Gail were our longest neighbors on Cloverdale and I still miss them very much. May you all find comfort in your own fond memories of them both. With love, Karen Driessen

I have such fond memories of working with Alice in Relief Society. We often did service projects together. She always had a smile and was humble about the things she did for others. Sympathy and God's blessings to all of her family. Love from Missoula friends, Beverly & Ray Robertson

Alice was such a sweet lady and we will miss talking to her. Whenever we would call her she would make you feel so loved.
Her voice was like talking to an angel, which I know she was on earth. The love and joy she brought to others will be remembered
for many, many years. Bob and I would like to send our love to all her family and we are thinking of you and praying for you.
With Love,
Linda & Bob Erdahl
