Alice P. McLeod

Alice King Prather McLeod, 84, passed away peacefully at Brightview Baldwin Park in Staunton on Friday, June 23, 2023.

She was born on June 20, 1939, in Auburn, Alabama to the late Osburn Clyde, Sr. and Anne Mary King Prather.

She attended Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia, and graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor of Arts degree and a concentration in Music.

Alice was a social worker for the City of Richmond for fifteen years, where she worked tirelessly to improve the lives of those around her. She will always be remembered as an incredibly hardworking individual with a passion for helping others.

In addition to her successful career, Alice had many hobbies and interests that brought her joy in life. She sang in the church choir and loved music more than anything else in the world. Her love for music was a lifelong vocation that she loved sharing with others. Alongside her late husband, Leroy Linwood McLeod, Alice traveled around the world experiencing different cultures, exploring new places, and enjoying opera. She and her husband were longtime patrons of the Metropolitan Opera.

Alice leaves behind a truly loving family and countless friends who will cherish her memory always. She is survived by her daughter Carolyn Osburn Maloney; her son, Michael Warren Maloney, Jr.; her stepson, Mark Linwood McLeod (Dulcie); her stepdaughter, Karen McLeod Jeffrey (Joe); her brother, Osburn Clyde Prather, Jr. (Deana); her step-granddaughters, Meredith Jeffrey (Phillip) and Meredith McLeod; and her step-grandsons, James Jeffrey, Iain McLeod, and Evan McLeod.

In addition to her loving husband and parents, she is preceded in death by her step-son, Carl Buckingham McLeod.

Alice's unwavering kindness and wanderlust will never be forgotten by those who knew her best. Her family and friends will forever remember her legacy as a devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother, friend, colleague, and public servant dedicated to uplifting all around her.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date.

It is suggested that those desiring may make memorial contributions to the Staunton Augusta Arts Center (20 S. New Street, Staunton, VA 24401) or the Staunton Music Festival (214 W Beverley St, Staunton, VA 24401).
