Alice A. "Mamaw" Rote

April 27, 1943 — May 11, 2024

Kings Mountain

Alice A. “Mamaw” Breakfield Rote, age 81, of Kings Mountain passed away on Saturday, May 11, 2024, at home surrounded by her family. She was born on April 27, 1943, the daughter of the late Clyde and Emma Breakfield. Alice was proud to be a mom and mamaw to more than just her family. Her kitchen was open to everyone. Thanksgiving meals were for anyone that needed a family meal. Alice never met a stranger and could remember names and people very well. She would see kids that had grown to adults, and she would still remember them. Alice was a faithful member at church, serving as a Sunday School teacher, youth worker, and going on mission trips, especially to Grenada. She was also involved in the Girls in Action (GA’s) and Patch the Pirates Club. Alice will be greatly missed but will forever be in our hearts.

Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband of 50 years Bertram “Papaw Bert” Rote; son Timothy Rote; daughters Melissa & Sandra Rote; grandson Jonathan Rote; five brothers; and five sisters.


Those left to cherish her memory include her son Scott Rote (Gail); grandsons Michael Rote (Isela) and Blair Sellers (Chera); great grandsons Isaiah, Jayden, Samuel (Anna), Justin, and Skyler; granddaughters Jordan, Liliana, Sophie, and Emilee; great-great grandchildren Rosie, Samuel, and Isaac; brother Danny Bowen (Shirley); along with a number of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends that loved her dearly.
