June 2, 1956 – August 24, 2016
It was our honor to host a Celebration of Life for Michelle Barone at McGroarty Arts Center on December 10th, 2016. Michelle is deeply cherished as an uplifting presence and one of McGroarty’s most dedicated advocates. Michelle’s connection to McGroarty Arts Center spanned her entire lifetime, including many years of service as president of its Board of Directors. Michelle’s connection was also multigenerational, since her mother, Isabella Barone, served as executive director and taught Tai Chi. Also, her beloved children, Hannah and Jeremiah, have participated in classes at our treasured community arts center.
Everyone who has held Michelle Barone in their heart was welcomed to join us as we celebrated her Spirit and her inspirational life.
