Deaconess Alice Trueblood Obituary

Alice Yvonne Trueblood was born in Dade City, Florida, to the late John Wesley Smith and Carrie Woodie Smith on February 8, 1924. She accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and personal Savior at a young age and was baptized at St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church. She was a faithful and an active member, serving as a Deaconess for many years. In 1943, Alice graduated from Moore Acadmy (later renamed Moore-Mickens High School). She attended Florida Normal College in St. Augustine, FL from 1943 to 1945 where she received her Associate’s Degree. She continued her post-secondary education and later went on to receive her Bachelor’s Degree in Home Economics and Elementary Education from Florida A & M University.  Ms. Trueblood was a Pasco County Educator for over thirty-five years. She taught at Moore Elementary in Dade City and Woodland Elementary in Zephyrhills until she retired in the 1980s. She was most known for her love of gardening and great baking skills. Other hobbies included fishing and sewing. Alice was a loving wife, nurturing mother, and faithful prayer warrior.  In 1946, she was united in Holy Matrimony to the late Deacon Simon Trueblood of Marianna Florida.

Norman G. Simmons; and siblings: Martha WIiliams, Mary Pearson, Melba Walker, Lewis Adams, Florie Hansberry, Richard Adams, Ruby Smith Thomas, and John Smith Jr.  She leaves a legacy of love and precious memories to be cherished by her children, Simon J.
