Alice T. Barton age 84, was born in London, England, to Robert and Florence Telfer. She passed June 9, 2012 peacefully while surrounded by her family.

In the course of her youth, Alice survived the bombing campaign known as the Battle of Britain, commonly recognized as "The Blitz", during World War II. Through the Liberation of Paris, Alice and her father traveled by tandem bicycle to Dumfries, Scotland from London, England. Alice was vivacious, full of life and had an unyielding penchant for adventure.

Alice had an appreciation of nature and the outdoors, a remarkable sense of humor and possessed many creative talents. She was an accomplished seamstress and artist. Alice was the youngest woman to be appointed as Wardrobe Mistress for the Theatre Royal Stratford in London.

An extraordinary woman who was always ready to help or listen in times of need, Alice lived to spend time with her family.

Her favorite past times included cooking, baking and sewing for the family. She captured images of her life through her oil paintings. Alice and her husband, Ray, shared a love for walking along the beach, viewing the changing of the leaves and camping with the family in Murphy, North Carolina.

She is survived by her loving husband of 62 years Ray J. Barton, her sons Peter T. Barton, Paul D. Barton, Perry A. Barton and Jamie A. Barton; her daughter-in-laws, Beth Barton, Cynthia Barton and Maria Barton; her grandchildren, Christopher and Heather Barton, Robby and Lisa Barton, Phillip Barton and Kevin Holder, Cheyenne Barton, Destri Barton and Kaily Barton; her great-grandchildren Landon Barton, Jaden Barton, and Lily Barton; as well as extended family in England.

At the family's request, no service will be held.

"Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." - Christopher Robin, to Pooh.
