Alyce I. (Wilson) Yoder

Alyce I. (Wilson) Yoder, 96, of Bellefontaine, died at 11:23 a.m. on July 29, 2017, at Logan Acres in Bellefontaine. She was born on July 15, 1921, in Champaign County to Herman and Ethel Wilson. She was married on December 16, 1941, in West Liberty to Albert C. Yoder.

She is survived by daughters Julia (Lowell) Stevens of Urbana and Janet Brown of Bellefontaine; grandchildren Molly McCumons of Anna, Margaret (Lance) Sennett of Waynetown, Ind., Jason (Jen) Brown of Bellefontaine, Julie (Bill) Berry of Clearwater, Fla.; great-grandchildren Allison, Bryce and Brady McCumons, Ellie, Emily, and Claire Sennett, Lexey, Brix, and Daxby Brown, and Breckin Berry; along with several nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her husband Albert Yoder to whom she was married to for 63 1/2 years, her parents, one brother Harry Wilson, one sister Ruby Webb, and a son-in-law Michael Brown.

She worked for Figley Drugstore and Green Hills Child Care Center both in West Liberty, but her main job and focus was that of a dairy farmers' wife and loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Even though she worked off the farm, she would still come home each night and help in the fields and/or around the farm.

She was a 1939 West Liberty graduate. She was a member of the West Liberty Methodist Church where she was a charter member of the choir and a member of a quartet. While living in West Liberty, she was known for her cooking (graham cracker pudding was served at every family/holiday meal), crocheting, meticulous flower beds and garden, singing, sitting on the front porch with Albert, and visiting with all of their neighbors, both big and small. She led a humble life, but was rich in her love of Christ and an even deeper love for her family.

Pastor Lee Ortman will officiate the funeral service on Thursday, August 3, 2017, at 11 a.m. at the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home, West Liberty. Burial will be in Fairview Cemetery, West Liberty. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, August 2nd from 4-7 p.m. at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be made to West Liberty United Methodist Church, 202 W. Newell St. West Liberty, OH 43357.
