Alice M. Layton, 98 of Indianapolis, passed into the Arms of our Lord on October 21, 2017 at her home surrounded by her loving family. Born October 29, 1918 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Canada, to Millard and Ruth Swinford, her family moved to Indianapolis in 1923 where she graduated from Tech High School in 1936. Alice met the love of her life, Fred Layton at a place some may remember, the "Riverside Skating Rink," and married him in 1937. He proceeded her in death in 1998. Their beautiful life together was blessed with four children. RuthAnn "Ruthie" Layton, Kenneth Layton (deceased) (Patricia), Barbara Layton-Rankin (Harold) and John Layton (Laurie).
"Mom" Layton also was so very proud of her 18 Grandchildren, 26 Great Grandchildren and 3 Great Great grandchildren.
Alice herself was a home maker, worked Community Marketing with Welcome Wagon, and served at Fulton Jr. High in the cafeteria for 23 years as well volunteered at election polling sites until her 93rd birthday. An avid bowler, sports fan (as she would say "anything with a ball"), and a passion for fishing "Mom" seemed happiest whenever praising her Savior, volunteering at the Clermont Christian Church, where she was a 62-year member and celebrating all life with her large family.
Visitation is set for 10:00am to 1:00pm Thursday October 26, 2017 until her service begins at 1:00pm. at the Clermont Christian Church, 9204 Crawfordsville Rd. Clermont (Indianapolis). Graveside service will be at Lincoln Memory Gardens, Whitestown.
