Alice Elizabeth Harmon
August 24, 1928 - August 19, 2010
Born in Chester, Pennsylvania on August 24, 1928 to Lillian C.
and Fillmore B. Futty, Alice Elizabeth Futty was a delight to
everyone she encountered. With her twinkling eyes, dark, wavy,
brown hair, and infectious smile, she was a friend to everyone she
met. During her high school years she dated the legendary Rock and
Roll icon, Bill Haley, who even wrote two songs about her titled
"My Cute Little Brown Eyed Gal" and "There's a Moon Tonight on
Cherry Tree Lane". In 1946 Alice graduated from Glen-Nor High
School in Norwood, Pennsylvania and in 1947 attended the McConnell
School for Air Hostesses. On December 8, of that year, LIFE
Magazine featured a pictorial article about the school and
portrayed Alice in nine of the fifteen photos, including the
centerfold that depicted her graduating class.
While working as a Stewardess for TWA Airlines in Kansas City,
Missouri, Alice met her husband Jacob Lindley Harmon, who at that
time was completing his medical school residency. Shortly after
graduation, they moved to Denver Colorado.
In the early '50s, Alice gave birth to two children, Victoria
Carol and Jeffrey Jay and in 1958 they moved to Littleton, Colorado
and raised their family in Columbine Valley. In addition to being a
wonderful homemaker, Alice loved children, adored music, dancing,
and parties, antiques, tennis, bridge, golf, growing roses, and at
one time bred and raised Siamese cats. Jake and Alice divorced in
1978 and she never re-married. In her younger years Alice
participated in numerous volunteer activities and was once
President of the Rocky Mountain Osteopathic Hospital Women's
Auxiliary. She was also a life-long member of Littleton United
It is with great courage and resiliency that Alice lived the
last portion of her life under the protection and care of her son
Jeff and wife, Melanie. In passing, she can once again express her
magnetic love for her family and friends with joyous open arms.
Alice was preceded in death by her parents and her brother,
Fillmore Futty, Jr. She is survived by her sister, Ruth Ann Dombrow
of Folsom, Pennsylvania, her daughter, Victoria Faeo of Wasilla,
Alaska, her son Jeff and wife Melanie Harmon of Bozeman, Montana,
Step Grandsons, Joseph Wiltzen, of Manhattan, Montana and Uncas
Wiltzen, of Waltham, Massachusetts, along with many beloved nieces
Alice's family would like to extend their utmost gratitude and
appreciation for the hugs and loving care she received for the last
five years from the staff at Edgewood Vista, in Belgrade Montana
and from the nurses and caregivers of Rocky Mountain Hospice, in
Bozeman, Montana. Arrangements are in the care of Dokken-Nelson
Funeral Service. www.dokkennelson.com
