Aline and Ed met in San Francisco where Ed was serving his country in the Navy. He was soon dispatched to Pearl Harbor where Aline joined him. The bond that developed between these two newlyweds was forever forged with the devastation of Pearl Harbor. After returning to the state of her birth in 1953, she and Ed opened Blake’s TV in downtown North Little Rock. After 20 years of building a successful business, she and Ed sold the store to their son, Don, who has continued the “Mom and Pop” ideals that were so basic to their family.
Aline maintained good health well into her late seventies by playing tennis with her grandsons, tending her beloved cows from the seat of her John Deere and giving the rest of her family advice on Bridge strategy and picking up a ten pin in bowling.
The strength and spirit of our mom will forever be remembered and her spirit and joy of life will continue through her children and grandchildren.
