Alva served as the Monroe Township Trustee for 16 years and she was devoted to helping him in that capacity. She loved to dance, bet on horses, play bingo and go to the boat. She was a member of Prince of Peace Catholic Church, Jefferson Post No. 9 of the American Legion Auxiliary, Madison VFW Post 1969 Auxiliary, the DAV and the Madison Moose Lodge No. 765.
