Alice S. Barnett, age 94, of Fairfield, beloved wife of the late James A. Barnett, Sr., entered into eternal life on Saturday, April 14, 2018.

The daughter of the late Ervil and Alice Dechamps, Alice was a lifelong Fairfield resident and a 1942 graduate of Roger Ludlowe High School. She was a charter member of the Bridgeport WATES Club and  the American Legion Auxillary. Alice enjoyed baking wedding cakes for her children, family, and friends, baking Christmas meat pies, and canning and freezing vegetables.  She would faithfully watch the Lawrence Welk and Liberace shows and enjoyed Polka music and dancing with her beloved husband. A devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, Alice took great pleasure in her children and grandchildren’s school and sporting events, traveling with her husband and family, and the family cruise to the Caribbean Islands with her son and daughters.
