Doris Moody Obituary

Doris Jeanette Moody (Reid) of Weedsport NY, 84, peacefully passed 12.06.2023 to be with her God in heaven and Father Rev. Lester “ Jerry”  Reid and mother Joyce Reid following a difficult injury. She is survived by her husband, Joseph James Moody, daughters Cheryl Schoonmaker, Dawn Jordan and son Samuel Schoonmaker wife Patricia , 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

Doris grew up and devoted herself to the religion of the Christian and Missionary Church of Auburn all her life. Her father was the pastor for over 20 years.. Her church contributions were many through her lifetime; Missions Director, Choir Director, Special Events Coordinator, Pianist and Organist, and she even cleaned the church.

Doris fell very Ill during the early 70s which nearly took her life. With great determination and strength she regained a new life and hope for a future. She entered the workforce full throttle and  held down a few unconventional jobs that back in the early 70s were still considered a man’s position in the workforce;  dump truck driver, bus driver, and expert stone mason of floors, walls and a very stunning and oversized fireplace.

Mid 70s she married Joe Moody. She spent many fond years cheering Joe and his stunning antique race car participating in the world of drag racing events throughout the state.

Later in her more retired years she enjoyed the baby sitting of the not so sit-able grandchildren… Austin, Alaina, & Zeph Schoonmaker; Opie and Abe Jordan, and Brett, Bobby, and Bailey Burr;. All the  babies became the beginning of some stunning crocheted  baby outfits with blankets. It became a regular pastime and so Doris would donate them to the Pregnancy Care Center of Cayuga County and continued up until late this year.

Doris will be greatly missed by many for both her gracious contributions and gifts. She spent much of her life finding joy in her creativity, crafts of many and the opportunities to give that joy.

Service will be held at The Christian and Missionary Church of 630 N Seward Ave, Auburn, NY 13021Thursday December 14th 2023 5pm. Family and friends are to gather for repast.
