Alice Maye Hubbard Hacker

March 9, 1945 ~ May 19, 2022 (age 77)


On Thursday, May 19th, 2022, Alice Maye Hubbard Hacker, a loving mother, grandmother, and sister passed away at the age of 77 in Cookeville, Tennessee.

Alice was born in Mason, TN on Friday, March 9th, 1945, to Albert and Clara (Brigman) Hubbard. She worked at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis, TN as an autoclave operator for over 20 years. She had her first child, Joe Phillips Jr. on September 28th, 1964. She was a member of Ebenezer Presbyterian Church in Mason, TN.

Alice was known for her love of children and animals, particularly elephants, giraffes, and monkeys. She had a humorous personality and loved to play jokes on people and make people laugh. She loved the outdoors, travel, adventure, reading, and puzzle books. Most of all she was a family-oriented woman who always wanted to be with somebody; she was never one to live on her own and lived many years with her son and then her sister until meeting Lawrence Morris, with whom she spent her last 17 years. She was a natural caregiver and would always place the needs of others above herself.

Alice was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Clara Hubbard, her sister, Amy Jones, her brother in laws; Larry Hopper, Jimmy "Jim" Lovett  and James "Shorty" Dunaway and her daughter Angel Hacker, and is survived by her long-time partner Lawrence Morris, her son Joe (Deborah) Phillips Jr., her step-children Wendy (Eddie) Grinder, William Hacker, and Michelle (Tony) Howell, her siblings Betty Lovett, Albert Jack Hubbard, Judy Dunaway, Ruby Hopper, and John Wesley Hubbard, her grandchildren Dylan (Alyssa) Phillips and Kaylee Phillips, and many nieces and nephews.

Services will be held at Maley Yarbrough Funeral Home in Covington, TN on Wednesday, May 25th, with the visitation from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, and the Memorial Service from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to her favorite charity, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
