In the final hour of July 6th, 2022, Barbara Jean (Wilson) Moody passed away peacefully while under Hospice care at Walnut Creek Nursing Home while in convalescence from a recent stroke complicated by advanced Alzheimer's. She is survived by her four children Dean Moody, Lou Anne Moody, Amy (Curt) Marshall, and David (Melissa) Moody, as well as three grandchildren: Eric Marshall, Aaron Moody and Samantha Moody. Born on September 22, 1932, in Crawfordsville, Indiana, she later attended Transylvania University and was a sister with Phi Mu Sorority. She married Charles Moody (d. 2015) and devoted herself to motherhood. Throughout her life, Girl Scouts USA played a large role first through her childhood as an accomplished Girl Scout, then as a leader for her daughters' troop and finally, a highly valued neighborhood chair. A member of the American Business Woman's Association and a traveler in her later years, she led her life according to God's will, devoting herself as a member of Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Kettering. She donated her body to the Wright State Medical School and, as such, there will be no funeral. A memorial service will be planned at a later time at Central Christian.
