She was born in Neillsville, WI on April 7, 1927, the daughter of Richard and Hattie (Meihack) Beyer.   After graduating from Neillsville High School in 1944, she worked for the Federal Government Assistance Office of Clark County. On September 16, 1950 she married Edgar Tews at St. John's Lutheran Church. Alice was a stay-at-home mom until 1966 when she returned to work at the Clark County Courthouse, working in the County Clerk's Office and then the County Treasurer's Office, where she held the position of Deputy County Treasurer until her retirement in 1991.
