After the completion of secretarial school she began working at Remington/Rand Company in Lincoln where she worked with Joe Witmer. It was this work relationship that introduced her to Bill Witmer.
On July 8, 1947, Alice and Bill Witmer were united in marriage, and to this union three children were born. The couple made their home in Lincoln for a short time before moving to Palmyra, Nebraska. Alice then became employed by Northeast Public Power and later Bill also took a job there. After Eastern Nebraska Public Power merged the couple was relocated to Omaha, Nebraska.
In 1969, the family moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota where Alice was a very active member at Asbury Methodist Church for 42 years and volunteering for the Red Cross.
