Obituary for Alicia Lethcoe

Alicia Jane Lethcoe, age 88 of Middleville, passed away on February 2, 2020.

Alicia was born on March 21, 1931, in Grand Rapids to Orlando and Marguerite Lohr. Alicia grew up in Vermontville and Nashville surrounded by a large and loving family of uncles, aunts, cousins, and grandparents. At age 12 Alicia moved to Hastings where she graduated from Hastings High School in 1949, then attended Bronson Hospital School of Nursing.

Alicia spent her early married life as a homemaker in Nashville until 1962 when the family moved to Middleville. She worked as the secretary for the Middleville Police Department, and later managed a medical practice at Butterworth Hospital. After retirement Alicia was a volunteer victim’s advocate for the Barry County Sheriff Department’s Victim Services Unit. Alicia also spent years clerking for Wendell Tobias Auctioneers, which nicely coincided with her passion for garage and yard sales.

Alicia is survived by her children, Eric Gragg, Archie Gragg and fiance Lindy Black, Alana (Alan) Cowan, and Thomas Andrew Lethcoe; grandchildren, Andrew Lethcoe, Aleah Dockstader, Richard Gragg, Alan Gragg, Andrea Gragg (Nate) Nofsinger, Blair Cowan, Johnathan (Christy) Cowan; and great grandchildren, Kaylee Lethcoe, Jonathon Lethcoe, Molly Nofsinger, and Ben Nofsinger. Alicia always had time for her grandchildren and they spent many weekends and summer vacations with her. They will miss her dearly.

Memorial contributions may be made to Interim Healthcare Hospice.

As Alicia requested, cremation has taken place, arranged by Beeler-Gores Funeral Home. Alicia’s ashes will be interred with her mother at a private family gathering at a later date.
