August 28, 1929 - September 01, 2023


Alice Baumann was born in 1929 and grew up in Great Neck, New York. Alice’s
youth was spent surrounded by her parents, Walter and Sarah (Sadie) Wood, her
brother John (Jack), sister Marian, plus numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. She
made many lifelong friends while attending school at St. Aloysius Catholic
Church and Great Neck High School. Following high school, Alice commuted to
New York City each day where she worked for the the Bell Telephone Company
and on Wall Street for Manufacturer’s Trust Company.

Alice married Nelson Paul Baumann of Chicago, a United States Merchant
Marine Academy graduate, on November 1, 1953. Alice enjoyed spending time
with her family, cooking and baking excellent desserts. She was known for her
beautiful smile and her exuberant love for all children. Alice maintained a strong
Catholic faith and traveled to many places with Nelson. Together they lived in
Woodstown and Woodbury, New Jersey, Corpus Christi, Texas, Fayetteville,
North Carolina, and Fountain Hills, Arizona. She remained married to Nelson for
more than 65 years, until his passing in 2018. She lived her final years in Mesa,

Alice is survived by her three children Diane McGhee and fiancé Warren (Ron)
O’Brien, Donald and wife Tonya Baumann, Carolyn and husband Scott Davis,
seven grandchildren (Christine, Jonathan, Michael, Kaitlyn, Laura, Colleen,
Sean), six great-grandchildren (Samantha, Liam, Fiona, Elise, Makenna, Griffin),
plus one on the way.

    My condolences to Diane, Don, Carolyn …may time allow you to replace the sorrow you share now, with many fond memories of laughter, celebrations, and traditions and much more, that you all shared with your mom during happier times. God Bless and may her spirit and heart live in all of you in the days and years ahead. With much love, Ed Stevens

  2. Dear Diane, Donald and Carolyn,

    I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Alice’s passing. She was a wonderful person and I was blessed to have her in my family.
    My father loved talking about her, and recalling happy memories when they were children growing up in Great Neck.

    You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers.
