From the Book of Proverbs, A Woman of Valor, Alice Gonzales-Flores, “A woman of valor is worth far beyond rubies and pearls. She opens her hands to the needy and her heart to the poor. She is clothed with strength and splendor and looks to the future cheerfully. She opens her mouth with wisdom, her tongue is guided by kindness. She oversees the activities of her household and never eats the bread of idleness”.

Alice was born in Sweet Home, Tx. She was a long-time resident of Rosenberg, Tx. She graduated from Lamar Consolidated High School in 1955, and began her career in real estate in 1975. She was passionate about being a voice and activist for her community. Alice was once quoted saying, “I’m just the kind that if I see something wrong, even if it doesn’t involve me personally, I can’t just stand by. I hate being used or seeing someone else being used. I can be very nice, but don’t use me. I can get very hostile and aggressive”. She was a leader in the LULAC organization in the 1960’s. She was the president of Concerned Citizens for Community Development in the late 1980’s, and was instrumental in the closing of the landfill in her community. She was the first Hispanic elected to the Lamar Consolidated Independent School Board where she served for 12 years. Above all, Alice was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother matriarch of her family “la reina de la familia”.
