I don't see "Thuel Taylor Home For Invalids" anywhere on that page. What I see on the previous page is "Here begins Lutheran Deaconess Mother House" (line 79), and on the page to which you linked at the top:
"Deaconess Mother House Lines 1 to 32 Incl."
"Layton Home for Invalids Lines 34 to 40 Incl."
and on line 33:
"Here Begins the Layton Home for Invalids"

Since Alice L. Ott is listed as a Deaconess on line 30, it is obvious that she is a resident of the Lutheran Deaconess Mother House, not the Layton Home for Invalids.

From what I have looked at, it has do to with the Milwaukee Hopsital, and the involvement of Passavant, which is where Alice worked at in 1930's. At the Passavant Home for Epileptics in Rochester, Pennsylvania, USA. She was in the 1940 census at the Lutheran Deaconess Mother House (YES).

Still trying to find out how to locate where she is buried.

An Alice L Ott died 26 Mar 1964 in Milwaukee, age 85. Could by yours. See:

(home page here: http://www.vitalsearch-ca.com/gen/wi/_vitals/wideathm.htm )
With her date of death, you can obtain her death certificate, which should list her burial place.

Vital records can be obtained either from the state or county (or in the case of Milwaukee, the city). Their websites explain the procedures and fees:

Another step closer, from my emails to the Lutheran Diocese and Synods, I have a copy of Alice's memorial obituary that appeared in the Lutheran Newsletter, very quite informative. Did not mention a place of burial.

From a quick email to the cemetery, I have located her burial. She is buried at Graceland Cemetery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

"Alice Ott is buried here at Graceland Cemetery. She is buried in a lot that was purchased for the Lutheran Deaconesses along with a number of other Lutheran Deaconesses. The location of the lot is in Section 12, Block 11, Lots 10 – 13, Grave #20. She was buried March 30, 1964 and Schmidt and Bartelt was the Funeral Home."

All that work, and I did not have to pay for a death certificate!
