1927 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
GOODE, Alice Mary Of Naples, FL, formerly of Weston, MA, on July 19, 2016. Beloved wife of John Joseph Goode; predeceased by her parents, Anna and Herbert, her sister Ann, and brothers Francis, John, and Robert, she is survived by her brother Donald. Alice was the devoted mother of John E. Goode and his wife Eileen, of Naples, FL, Janet M. Sheehan and her late husband Jack, of Marblehead, MA, Elizabeth A. Goode of Boston, MA, Catherine J. Goode and her husband Louis Kaplan of Newton, MA, Nancy J. Goode of Boston, MA, David B. Goode and his wife Barbara of Westford, MA, and Susan M. Bumpus and her husband Jim, of Concord, MA. Alice is also survived by her grandchildren Nicolas and his wife Joanna, William and his wife Johanna, Harold, Douglas, John, Sarah, Henry, Meghan, Matthew, and Natalie; and her great-grandchildren Clive and William. Alice was born on the fourth of July and loved to celebrate her birthday and the birth of our nation with family and friends every year. She was a graduate of Girls' Latin High School in Boston, and worked at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She met her husband, John, at a YMCA dance and there began the romance of a lifetime, featuring both dancing and the YMCA prominently over the sixty-seven years of their marriage. As a young mother she raised her children seemingly effortlessly, supporting them in their many activities and still finding time to sew, knit, and quilt beautifully. She faithfully attended games and cheered on many Weston sports teams. Alice was an avid tennis player, a lover of books, and a bridge player. She donated her time generously to charity work at St. Julia's Church in Weston, and the Red Cross. She served as a literacy volunteer of Collier County and at the Guadalupe Center in Florida, where she was a tireless worker and a cherished companion. A celebration of her life is being planned by her family members. Relatives and friends will be most welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the American Red Cross (www.redcross.org or by mail to American National Red Cross, 2025 E Street, NW, Washington, DC 20006) or the Guadalupe Center (www.guadalupecenter.org or y mail to the Guadalupe Center, 509 Hope Circle, Immokalee, Fl 34142) Beachwood Society Naples, Florida 239-261-1767
