Then they moved off of the farm and into Fremont followed by a move to California for 5 years where daughter Kay was born. Alice, Rex, and the two children moved to Spalding, Nebraska, where they owned and operated the local Sale Barn. It was here where they became life partners not only in marriage but also in business. They were active in local community affairs, church activities, and they especially enjoyed playing pinochle with friends, neighbors, and relatives. In 1957 they moved to Holdrege where they lived and opened their own Real Estate Brokerage, Andersen Real Estate and Auction, for 30 years, until they retired. Here they welcomed their five grandchildren. During these years they also met and welcomed many new friends and traveled extensively both on tours and in their travel home. They returned to Fremont in 1986 where Rex passed away in 1991. Alice continued her active participation in church activities, card clubs, and luncheon groups. She enjoyed plants and flowers and passionately nurtured her beloved 50+ year old peony plants.
