Alice M. Habercam, a retired nurse and homemaker, died of a heart attack Friday at her son's home in Little Rock, Ark. The former longtime Homeland resident was 93.

Born in Edgemont, Washington County, and raised on her family's farm in Thurmont, the former Alice Marie Trumpower was a 1930 graduate of Smithsburg High School.

After graduating from the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, she worked in the late 1930s and the 1940s as a nurse and anesthetist for Dr. Conrad L. Inman Sr., a Baltimore dentist.

In 1948, she married another dentist, Dr. Julian W. Habercam. After he sold his practice in 1973, the couple moved to Charleston, S.C., when he joined the dental school faculty of the Medical University of South Carolina. He died in 1985.

Mrs. Habercam had volunteered at Maryland General Hospital and been a member of Grace United Methodist Church. She enjoyed vegetable and flower gardening and collecting antiques.

She had been a resident for eight years of the Asbury Methodist Village in Gaithersburg before moving to the home of her son, James J. Habercam, in 2004.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Henry W. Jenkins & Sons funeral home, 16924 York Road, Monkton.

Also surviving are a sister, Victoria Trumpower of Mexico City, and several nieces and nephews.
