Alice Doreen (Hertz) Moody was born at the Hertz Family home March 24, 1934. She was the second to the youngest of 10 children born to Edith Lura (Yeates) Hertz and Frank Lisbon Hertz.
On March 7, 1964, she married her husband Edward Floyd Moody in a special ceremony at St. Mark United Methodist Church, where she was a member for over 50 years. Ed made the journey home to heaven on Feb. 12, 1996. They had four children, Janet Moody, of Kankakee, Julie Moody, of Herscher, Jim (Amy Orwig) Moody, of Bonfield, and Joyce (Mike) Wilson, of Herscher.
She had six grandchildren, Ethan (Jessie Sonneveld) Wilson, Lauren Moody, Nolan Wilson, Evan Moody and Allison Moody.
Alice was a creative, loving, down-to-earth woman. Any given day you could find her outside, taking care of her flowers, working in the garden, or feeding the birds. When she wasn’t busy outside, you could find her crocheting, sewing clothes, or canning some of her homemade spaghetti sauce.

An additional time for visitation took place from 11 a.m. Friday, March 13, until the noon funeral service at St. Mark United Methodist Church in Kankakee. Burial followed in Kankakee Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Aroma Township.
