Obituary of Alice Margaret McGuire
Alice Margaret McGuire, 98, passed away peacefully at her home in Madison, NJ, surrounded by her family. She was born in Orange, NJ and grew up in East Orange. At the age of 7, her family moved to Madison to live in the home that was built by her grandparents when they came over from Ireland.
She graduated from Madison High School in 1942, and then joined the Nurse Cadet Corps during World War II. Alice received her Nursing Degree from Overlook Hospital’s Nursing School in 1946. Her employment began as a Pediatric Nurse in Overlook Hospital followed by time spent in a private medical practice in Springfield, NJ, until 1953.
Alice was a member of St. Vincent Martyr Church and was a long-time member of the Rosary Altar Society as well as a member of the American Legion Auxiliary since 1989. She was always willing to lend a helping hand even to the point of going door-to-door to collect money for the American Cancer Society.
Alice is survived by her loving children, Kathleen and her husband Scott, Patricia, Denise and her husband Ken, Beth and her husband James, John and his wife Maria, and David. She is also survived by her 7 cherished grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, John Joseph McGuire in 2011 and her brother, Msgr. William John Haughney in 2019.
Alice was loved, especially by her adoring grandchildren. She truly enjoyed the company of family and friends, sharing memories, laughs and good times. She will undoubtedly be missed but the memories she made with family and friends will live on in the kindness she showed, the comfort she shared and the love that she gave.
