Mary Alice S. Woodling March 19, 1933 - June 12, 2020

Mary Alice S. Woodling died peacefully on June 12, 2020 with family
at her side. She was born on March 19, 1933 in Sunbury, PA, the
daughter of the late Thelma E. (Sheetz) and Charles L. Steele.
She was married to the late Lloyd F. Woodling for 53 years at his
time of death in June 2009.
After graduating from Sunbury High School in 1951, Mary Alice earned
a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from East Stroudsburg State
Teacher’s College. She earned a Master’s Degree in School Psychology and
her Counseling Certification from Bucknell University. For 30 years,
she taught in the Williamsport Area School District as an elementary and
gifted program teacher. She retired as a school counselor from Curtin
Middle School.
Mary Alice was a loving wife, mother and Nana. She enjoyed
gardening, caring for animals, watching sports of any kind, and most
importantly, being with her family. She was always willing to lend a
compassionate ear and we will miss her wit, smile, and kind heart.
Mary Alice is survived by one daughter, Abbie L. (Larry) Newcomer;
one son, Todd S. (Robyn) Woodling; and three granddaughters, Myrle E.
Newcomer, Anna M. Newcomer, and Christianna P. Woodling. In addition to
her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a brother, Charles
(Ted) P. Steele.

In keeping with her wishes, her service will be private and at the convenience of the family.
