Alice was one terrific lady! I worked with her at LT and despite the fact that I taught on the third floor and she taught on the first, our paths would frequently cross. She was kind, gracious, respectful of others, and she loved working with the her kids. Her teams became her girls and she gave them the love and discipline any "mom" would. When she retired, she gave some of the teachers small carvings she had created - and I felt great pleasure that she included me in that group. I am so glad I had the opportunity to know her - she was a special teacher and a special person.

My sister and I played for Coach Meacom at Lake Taylor in the early 80s. She was an amazing coach. My sister and I adored her and appreciated her patience and love for the game. Our team that year didn't do well, but that represents more of us and NOT her. I always thought of her and wondered how she spent the rest of her years after retirement. I see that she lived as I had believed...in the service of others. She will be missed but not forgotten. Love to her legacy and family.

Alice was my teacher and coach at Norview. She was my mentor. I followed in her footsteps at Radford College, I became a teacher and coach. She guided me and I was blessed to teach and coach with her at Lake Taylor. Thank you my friend! I love you, Dale Kollath

I met Alice when I was dating my husband. I played softball with some fantastic girls that became great role models to many. Alice Meacom was my role model. I had the pleasure to coach softball with her during my daughter's school years. She assisted me with getting our South Norfolk girls their first chance to play fast pitch. South Norfolk parks and rec would only have slow pitch leagues. So we took our girls to Va Beach to play. She never made me feel bad about giving signals to the girls, it being my first time I looked like a rag doll trying to give signals. She only told me to slow everything down but as I look back all I can do is laugh about it. What a site it had to be... To show you how competitive Alice was even in her 60's, she insisted on me hitting an infield ball harder to show one of the players how to field it. Unfortunately it took a bad hop and her glove on the ground where it should have been, did not come up in time to stop from hitting her leg What a bruise! As I walked her to a bench she insisted it was nothing. I think that was the last time she let me hit her a ball on the infield. Ha! She, always was passionate in teaching lessons, sportsmanship, and the right thing to do, Her love and wisdom will live on through those that loved her.
