The family resided on Eighteen Street for a number of years. She and her sister Eva attended Booker T Washington Elementary School. In Middletown High School Alvie was the head majorette for the school band. Alvie’s participation in Church missionary work gave rise to her resolve to serve as a Church Deaconess.
