Evelyn Mae Moody, age 66, of Wainwright died Monday, May 20, 2019, in her residence following a hard-fought battle with cancer.

A daughter of the late Donald R. and Mabel G. Finnicum Hilliard, Evelyn was born at Steubenville, Ohio on June 14, 1952.

Evelyn obtained her Bachelor Degree from Malone University where she played basketball during her college career. On November 19, 1976, at Carrollton, Ohio, she married Patrick J. Moody and together the couple raised two children.

Her faith was nurtured at the Wesley Community Chapel in Carrollton where she served as the church’s Business Secretary and taught Sunday School. Professionally, she served as a substitute teacher for nearly 20 years and for the past 20-plus years has taught at Buckeye Career Center at New Philadelphia and was recently awarded the Twin City Chamber of Commerce Educator of the Year for Buckeye Career Center.

Evelyn had many joys in life. She loved gardening, crafting and decorating her home. For many years she was a volunteer leader with the Girls Scouts and the Boy Scouts of America. She was passionate about nature and botany, which made her a perfect fit as a nature instructor at Seven Ranges Scout Reservation where she earned a diamond John Burrows Award and a 5th year Pipestone. Evelyn also served as an Indian Valley Band Booster for about five years and assisted in various activities that included setting up for concerts and contests.

In addition to her husband of 42 years, Evelyn is survived by a son, Shane (Lori) Moody of Dennison, Ohio and Danielle (Travis) Barker of Millbrook, Alabama; five grandchildren, Brianna Moody, Spencer Moody, Austin Barker, Michael Barringer and John Barringer; a sister, Joyce (Larry) Herrington of Morgantown, West Virginia; a brother, Roger (Brenda) Hilliard of Richmond, Ohio; and her nieces and nephews.

The family will greet guests on Friday, May 24, 2019, from 5-8 PM in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia. An additional hour of visitation will be held on Saturday May 25, 2019, in the funeral home’s chapel from 10-11 AM with a service led by Pastors Gordon Warner and Lester Rowan beginning at 11 AM. A meal and fellowship will immediately follow in the Geib Family Center, adjacent to the funeral home.

Memorial contributions in Evelyn’s name may be directed to Buckeye Council, BSA – Seven Ranges I.W. Delp Ecology Center, C/O CJ Gavin, 2301 13th St NW, Canton, OH 44708.

Evelyn and I were close friends from childhood through teenage years. Uncle Joe Finnicum was married to my Aunt Berta, which made us cousins-in-law! Evie was intelligent, ambitious, caring and faithful to family, friends, and Jesus. I pray that the comforting arms of our Heavenly Father will hold you in these difficult days.

So sorry to hear this Pat.

Evelyn and I were friends and colleagues at BCC. She taught the junior cosmetology anatomy classes for myself, Mrs. Fisher and Mrs. McGraw. She put so much of herself into the Cos lesson plans and extra learning activities for the students so that it would be helpful to each one to pass their OSBC test. Thank you Evelyn for going the extra mile for us. I knew you were not well when we talked but that did not stop you from teaching. May God hold you close and comfort you now and forever. Until we meet again. To her family, Thank you for sharing her with us and with our Cos students who dearly loved her. .

Mrs. Moody was a wonderful women. She was my science teach at BCC junior and senior year and also my husband’s science teacher senior year. She help me in several ways to pass the state test that I struggled with. Her dedication and guidance show a lot of us young adults how to listen and be a joy to others. I pray dear Lord for her family for peace and comfort in Jesus name. Amen

Mrs. Moody was one of my favorite teachers ever. Don't tell mr. Oliver that. I had her for 2 years as a science teacher at buckeye. She would always talk to me if I was having a good or bad day. She would always find the words to help me make it through the day. She was a mentor and a friend. She is going to be deeply missed by all who knew her.
