Alice was born on March 9, 1927, in Dickens, Texas to Alvis and Ethel (Basham) Hicks. Her dad was a Baptist preacher, so her family enjoyed living in many small towns in the Texas panhandle.

She married Bob J. Scarborough and they were blessed with 4 children, Linda, Joe Dennis, Julieana and Marcus.
