Alice B. Sharp of Huntingdon Valley passed away surrounded by loved ones and in the care of her children in her daughter’s home in North Wales on July 31, 2020.
Alice was born On January 25, 1928. She was the daughter of the late George (Kevork) and Asniv Baker (nee – Merakian), survivors of the Armenian genocide. She grew up in a loving home with her sister Artie and her Uncle Sam. Alice grew up speaking Armenian with her folks and thought it was the norm to speak one language at home and one outside the home- a testament to days gone by.
Alice graduated from Frankford High School in 1945 and worked for the Social Security Administration. Soon after, she met her late husband, Robert Sharp, and they married in 1948. They were married for 53 years.
Alice spent 52 years in her home in Huntingdon Valley built by her husband where cherished memories were created by all members of her extended family. She spent her 3 last years in independent living at Sunrise where she enjoyed social company and games.
Alice is survived by her four children, Linda Brennan (Richard), Robert Sharp Jr. (Kate), Debra Yanoshik (Larry), Lisa Duffey (Dan), ten grandchildren, and twelve great-grandchildren who are blessed to have had her in their lives for so many wonderful years.
Alice is known for her kindness, generosity, sense of humor and smile. A smart, strong woman and a hard worker, she continued to manage the family rental business, after her husband died, through the end of her life. Alice was proud of who she was and embraced her family history. She took opportunities to tell about the hardships of her ancestors in such a way as to teach, entertain, inform, and remember. This piece of her is a source of pride for her and all her extended family members.
She had an infectious imagination that gifted her children and grandchildren with memories to savor. She never tired of games with them. She was animated and creative and fun and so many more ands. A visit from Grandmom was looked forward to with anticipation and excitement.
She adored her family and they loved her beyond measure. Everyone shared treasured moments with her. She was able to make everyone feel special and loved- there was always enough of her to go around.
While saying goodbye to Alice is tearful and sad, her family is blessed to have had so many good years together. The impact that she has had on them cannot be measured and they are forever grateful for her.
