Alice Katherine Darcy Barone Obituary
Alice Katherine Darcy Barone Died on June 5, 2014, at her home in Independence Village of Grand Ledge, Michigan. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 68 years, Charles Gerald Barone, who died on August 23, 2011, and by her daughter Marilyn Alice Barone Wagamon, who died on March 31, 2013. She is survived by her son, Michael Barone, of Washington, D.C., her daughter, Patricia Barone, of Lansing, and her son-in-law, Thomas Wagamon, also of Lansing. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Alice and Patrick Overland; Robert Wagamon and his family, Lauren Harman, children Lauryn and Jack; and Dylan Wagamon and his family, Carey Wagamon and daughters, Reese, Hudsyn, and Ellie. Alice was born on September 21, 1919 to her loving parents, Patrick and Mae Darcy in Detroit, Michigan. She earned her Bachelor's degree from Wayne University in 1942, and taught at a one-room schoolhouse in Saline, Michigan. She married her husband on June 26, 1943, and they raised their three children in Detroit and Birmingham, Michigan. She was a President of the Women's Auxiliary of the Wayne County Medical Society, was active in the early development of pre-schools in the Detroit area, taught as a substitute teacher in the Detroit public schools, and worked in her husband's medical office. Alice and Jerry enjoyed traveling and entertaining their many friends and family, especially around their pool at their Birmingham home. She was an avid and successful investor, and engaged in many creative activities, including china and oil painting. She will be missed by her many family, friends and all the many people who she encountered and who were touched by her various acts of kindness. She was always mindful of the wonderful life that she lived, a life that was filled with love, good fortune, and laughter. The family will receive visitors at the Tiffany Funeral Home, 3232 West Saginaw, Lansing 48917, at 2:00 pm on Saturday, June 28, with a memorial service honoring both Alice and Jerry Barone, beginning at 3:30 pm.
