Doll, Alice Marie (Hapel) beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother "Nana" died peacefully on April 22, 2023, at age 96. Born on October 3, 1926, and growing up on a farm near Bismarck, North Dakota, Alice possessed a great sense of adventure and a love for the out of doors. She earned the childhood nickname "Brownie" for the deep tan she would acquire from long hours spent playing around the horses with her siblings, cousins, and her favorite dog. She met John Doll while working as a stenographer at Builder's Supply in Bismarck, and the two were married in 1945, moving to St. Cloud, MN soon thereafter to raise their four children, Bob, Dianne, Ellen, and Peggy. To describe Alice as eternally youthful would be an understatement. A lifelong fitness enthusiast, she embraced everything from Jack LaLanne workouts to Aqua-Trim to Pilates, faithfully attending exercise classes until a few weeks before she died. Amid a calendar brimming with costume parties, athletic activities like tennis and x-country skiing, family get-togethers, and meetings for the various clubs and groups to which she belonged (sewing club, dinner club, Bible Study Fellowship, and Reading Room, just to name a few), golf and bridge were always among her favorite pastimes. Friends at the St. Cloud Country Club dubbed her "Big Al," a hilariously ironic nickname given her petite stature and ladylike figure. "There goes Big Al!" was a phrase commonly overheard near the first tee-box as Alice would take her opening swing, and the epithet would follow her all the way through the end of her life (even the staff at The Waters at 50th, where she happily resided until her death, lovingly referred to her this way). Alice was young at heart. Though she outlived many beloved friends and contemporaries, Alice's youthful appearance and witty sense of humor only continued to flourish with age, and even past the age of 90, she was notorious for catching the eye of many a gentleman suitor! She loved hot dogs, shopping sprees, and a good game of bridge, but most of all, she enjoyed spending time with the people held dearest. Annual traditions with the Krussows including summer picnics, boating, trips to the lake and family holidays added up to a life well-lived for Alice. Right until the end, Alice approached life with an open mind — a trait not all too common for someone born nearly a century ago. She was genuinely interested in people and what was important to them. Her true sparkle came from the relationships she built with everyone in her life. Alice is survived by her loving family: sister, Carrie Hanson (age 101) of Fargo, North Dakota; daughters Dianne (Peter) Sikora, of Calgary, Alberta; Ellen (Jay Swanson) Doll, Minneapolis, Minnesota and Peggy (Gregory) Mesna, Excelsior, Minnesota: by her seven grandchildren, Nicholas (Marta) Sikora of Calgary Alberta, Anthony John of Calgary, Alberta, Madeline Swanson of Greenwich, Connecticut, Isabella Swanson of New York, New York, Martha (Christian) Kelso of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Jane Mesna of Houston, Texas and Peter Mesna of Waterville, Maine and by five great-grandchildren Enzo, Dante, Julian, Alia and Rio Sikora. She was preceded in death by her parents, Paul and Ellen Hapel, brother Paul Hapel, sister Betty Houser, special niece Judy Lies, husband John Doll, son Robert Doll, daughter-in-law Lois Doll and dear friend, Jack Sampsell. We are forever grateful to the members of the caring and devoted Specialty Care staff at The Waters on 50th in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They helped make Alice's last few years very special. A family service is planned for later this summer. Alice will be buried alongside her husband John at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. Memorials are preferred to Lake Harriet Methodist Church in Minneapolis.
