Alyce I. (Wilson) Yoder

July 15, 1921 ~ July 29, 2017 (age 96)

Alyce I. (Wilson) Yoder age 96, of Bellefontaine, Ohio passed away at 11:23 A.M. July 29, 2017 at Logan Acres Care Center in Bellefontaine. She was born July 15, 1921 in Champaign County to Herman and Ethel Wilson. She was married December 16, 1941 in West Liberty, Ohio to Albert C. Yoder. 

She is survived by her daughters Julia (Lowell) Stevens of Urbana, Ohio and Janet Brown of Bellefontaine; grandchildren Molly McCumons of Anna, Ohio, Margaret (Lance) Sennett of Waynetown, Indiana, Jason (Jen) Brown of Bellefontaine, Julie (Bill) Berry of Clearwater, Florida; 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 was preceded in death by her husband Albert Yoder to whom she was married to for sixty three and a half years; her parents; one brother, Harry Wilson; one sister, Ruby Webb and a son-in-law, Michael Brown.

Alyce 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.  

Visitation will be held Wednesday, August 2, 2017 from 4 to 7 P.M. at the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home in West Liberty. Pastor Lee Ortman will officiate the funeral service Thursday, August 3, 2017 at 11 A.M. at the funeral home.  Burial will be at the Fairview Cemetery in West Liberty.
