Obituary for Mary Catherine Moody

After years of service, God saw in His divine wisdom to call Mary Catherine Moody from labor to reward on Friday, May 10, 2019.

Mary Catherine Roundtree (Teen) was born December 23, 1948 in Wampee, South Carolina to Rev. Eddie Lee and Mary Roundtree. She was the youngest of three children.

Mary accepted and gave her life to Christ at an early age at her father’s church, Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, in North Myrtle Beach, SC. She later moved her membership to Zion Baptist Church in Newark, NJ after marrying her husband, James Moody.

Mary attended Chestnut High School and graduated in 1967. After high school, Mary had a passion for caring for others and attended school for nursing, becoming a Nursing Assistant in the early 1970s.

Mary was employed for many years with the New Jersey Veterans Home in Menlo Park, NJ, retiring in 2008.

Mary was joined in holy matrimony to James Daniel Moody in September 1970; loving, living and celebrating life for forty-nine years together. Their union was blessed with four sons.

Mary departed this life May 10, 2019. She was preceded in death by her parents, Rev. Eddie Lee and Mary Roundtree; as well as siblings, Eddie Lee, Jr. and Isaac Parker.

Mary leaves to cherish her memories: her loving and devoted husband of 49 golden years, James Daniel Moody; sons, John McNeil (Kelly), Rodney Beaty, Andre Moody and Bernard Moody; eight grandchildren, Stephanie, Brittney, Breean and Monica McNeil, Stephen A. Whitehead, Rodney N. Beaty, Jr., Nila and Nasir Moody; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and church family.
