Death: Oct. 28, 2009
Virginia, USA

Passed away Oct. 28, 2009, after a courageous bout with cancer. She was born in Hainesport, N.J., Sept. 27, 1936, to Joseph and Alice Mitchell. After graduating from high school, she started working at Fort Dix, N.J., where she met the love of her life, Justin E. (Gene) McCarthy Jr. They married on Oct. 31, 1959, and spent 50 years together raising their family and keeping them in line., Alice always had a song in her, and sang in her church choir while in high school, and for the last 20 years at St. Joseph Catholic Church. She was an active volunteer in her children's schools and with other organizations at places where Gene's military career took them. Her most satisfying volunteer job was being the soccer coach when her daughters all played on the same team for St. Mary's Catholic School. After retiring from Hampton City Schools, she began traveling again with her husband and enjoyed trips to Italy, Hungary and Ireland with her good friends, Diane Cone and Claire Rose. She loved to keep her hands busy with crafts of all sorts, especially crocheting blankets to keep her family warm. She always made sure no one left the house hungry, and a party could never have too much food or wine. She never met anyone she couldn't talk to, and will be missed by her many friends at St. Joseph's Church and TOPS, and her swimming buddies., Her parents and her sister, Doris Zimmer, preceded her in death., She is survived by her husband, Gene; her four daughters and sons-in-law, [redacted for privacy]; her seven grandchildren [redacted for privacy]. She is also survived by her brothers and sisters and their families [redacted for privacy]. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Joseph Catholic Church at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31, 2009. Burial will be at Arlington National Cemetery on Nov. 17, at 10 a.m. The family will receive friends Friday from 5 to 6 p.m. with a Rosary service to begin at 6 p.m. at R. Hayden Smith Funeral Home. (bio by: Mark Utley)
