It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dearly loved sister in Christ, Alice Woods.
Late into Saturday night in Ashwood House nursing home after a series of ongoing illnesses Alice left us to be with her Saviour.
All of us here in Mossley extend our deepest sympathy, love and prayers to her husband Ned, daughters Sandra and Ellen, and sons Edward and Samuel. Also to her extended family, her many grand children and great grand children.
The funeral service will take place in Mossley Methodist Church on Thursday 7th September at 10am, followed by 11:30am at Roselawn Crematorium.
Alice was a founding member who sat on the committee that established our Methodist church here in Mossley.
She had a deep love and commitment to the church and the people in it, and for many years was a guiding influence in many church matters. She was especially passionate for the MWI, the ladies in it will be deeply saddened at her passing. Alice for years attended church home group and believed strongly in prayer ministry, always attending prayer and bible study.
Over the years whatever the church was running, from community based fetes and themed fun events to Missions and fundraisers, Alice gave fully of her support and service. She loved seeing young people in the church, this was shown through her championing JMA – Junior Mission for All – encouraging the Mossley children to be aware of and support annual global projects, and they in turn were awarded badges and certificates through their fundraising.
Alice was a lady small in stature, but was truly monumental in her loyalty, wisdom and service towards Mossley Methodist and the church family. Our friend and sister we are so thankful for you and will miss you deeply.
