Marie Louise Moody Obituary
MARIE LOUISE MOODY, 93, passed away on March 13, 2014 at her son's home in Vacaville after a long battle with breast cancer. The fourth of six children, Marie Louise was born June 15, 1920 in New Jersey to Ralph and Marie Louise Hunter. In 1923, the family moved to Hemet, and then to Riverside, where she spent most of her life. In 1942 she married Lyman Moody and they settled on Homewood Court, where they had four children. Widowed in 1952, Marie Louise never remarried. She worked for a time as a doctor's assistant but devoted the majority of her time to raising her family. She lived briefly in Boise, Idaho before relocating with her daughter to Benicia in 1980, where she helped raise a granddaughter. She was a strong family matriarch with amazing talents for sewing, knitting, doll making and other crafts. She held several patents for inventions that helped disabled children. Marie Louise is survived by two sons, Robin (Michelle) of Vacaville and Christopher (Carol) of Torrance; a sister, Joan Recny of Riverside; six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. In addition to her husband, she was predeceased by her daughter Marie-Louise Mangold; a son, Lyman Kevin; four siblings and a grandson. Her ashes will be buried alongside Lyman's in Olivewood Cemetery in Riverside. Arrangements entrusted to the direction and care of Twin Chapels Mortuary, Vallejo (707) 552-6696. www.TwinChapelsMortuary.com
