Alice Savage Bachman, 54, 1307 Peterson Place, Johnson
City, Washington Co TN, died unexpectedly Tuesday, June
23, 2009, at the Lake View Dock on South Holston Lake.
Mrs. Bachman was a native of Little Rock, ARK. She was the
daughter of the late Scott and Patricia Savage.
Mrs. Bachman was a tireless advocate for the education of
children, especially at Fairmont Elementary School where
she served several years as the treasurer and membership
director of the Parent Teacher Association. She also
served as PTA president at Stratton Elementary School just
before a citywide redistricting in the early 1990s. She
helped bring together the Stratton and Fairmont
communities with her astute leadership and caring ways. At
Fairmont, she organized field days, fall festivals, and
other fundraisers. Among her many contributions, she made
certain the school’s health clinic was stocked and the
school’s impoverished children could attend field trips.
The school’s library was also of special interest to her.
She received the citywide PTA Lifetime Achievement Award
Mrs. Bachman served on the board of directors and as
treasurer for the Suzuki School of Music where her
children were violin students for many years. She was an
active member of Munsey Memorial United Methodist Church
and helped with children’s programs.
She graduated from the University of Arkansas with a
degree in Horticulture. Mrs. Bachman had traveled through
India, Afghanistan, and other Middle Eastern countries
before settling in Nevada where she met and married Tom
Bachman. After the birth of their daughter, Taylor, the
couple moved to Johnson City to be closer to family.
In 1990, she became a Certified Public Accountant. She
worked for the accounting firm of Lewis and Associates.
Since 2004, she worked as the Finance Director of the
United Way of Washington County, Tennessee. Her
professionalism, financial knowledge and concern for
detail allowed the organization to be ranked excellent in
accountability for a nonprofit business.

Bachman of Bristol, TN; mother-in-law and step father-in-
