Alice Ann Bradley dies



Alice “Ann” Bradley, 74, died April 1 at her home in Whitesburg.

Born in Perryville, she was the daughter of the late William F. Bradley, Sr., and Mildred Roney Bradley.

Miss Bradley was graduated from Perryville High School and received a degree in Family and Consumer Sciences from Eastern Kentucky University. She moved to Whitesburg at the age of 22 to begin her 49-year career as Letcher County’s Family & Science Extension Agent with the University of Kentucky’s Cooperative Extension Service.

After making Letcher County her home in June 1967, she worked with many 4-H Club children and was able to watch them become happy, successful adults.

Miss Bradley was an active member of Whitesburg United Methodist Church and several community organizations and groups. She loved the town of Whitesburg and the community she called home. In her spare time, she enjoyed reading, writing letters, quilting, sending care packages to family and friends, and visiting her family in North Carolina.

Surviving are her brother, Frank Bradley and wife Betty of Greenville, N.C.; a niece, Jennifer Bradley Allen and husband Roland Allen of Farmville, N.C.; great-niece Lauren Poad and husband, C.J. of Rolesville, N.C. and their son, her great-great-nephew. Trey Poad; and great-niece, Emily Allen, and great-nephew, Bradley Allen, both of Raleigh, N.C.

Miss Bradley was buried in Perryville with her mother and father on Friday April 3. In light of COVID-19, a private family graveside service will be done at a later date and a memorial of life celebration will be held at her church once travel restrictions are lifted. Details will be shared when those dates are determined.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Ovarian Cancer Screening Program at the Markey Cancer Center in Lexington either through its website or to Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Ovarian Screening Program, 800 Rose Street, UKMC, Room 375, Whitney Hendrickson Women’s Cancer Facility, Lexington, KY 40536.
