She grew up in the Apex community. Alease married Davie B. Flowers on September 6, 1946 and eventually moved to Knightdale where she lived most of her life. She was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Truly she was a Proverbs: 31 woman. Alease worked for Hudson Belk for over 25 years. Her last years at Belk were spent working in their doll shop at Crabtree Valley Mall. She became an avid collector of dolls and had over 300. However, she was first a homemaker. She was a fabulous cook and enjoyed having family and friends over for meals. She loved working in her yard and did most of the yard work herself until she was in her late 70’s.
Alease was a member of Knightdale Baptist Church for over 60 years. She was a member of the Christian Service Sunday School Class and the B.A.L.L. Club at the church. She loved her church family and faithfully attended until her health declined. She also attended East Wake Senior Center in Wendell, NC until poor health forced her to stay home.
