Obituary of Alice Price Hodge
On 27 October 2022, Alice P. Hodge passed from this earth to be with her Heavenly Father. Alice enjoyed a long and colorful life full of family, friends and travel. She is survived by her three sons, Michael of Woodbridge, VA, Randy of St. Petersburg, FL, Rich of Virginia Beach, VA; her brother, JoVan of Manning, SC; and five grandchildren. Born on January 16, 1936 in Manning South Carolina to Perry and Eula Price she arrived as the nation was recovering from the Great Depression. She also was born into the remnants of “the Old South” and witnessed the costs to families of WWII having lost uncles and cousins in the war. This time and place would shape her life and views of the world. She was the oldest of three sisters and two brothers. One brother passed away shortly after birth while she and her siblings grew up in rural South Carolina. As a young girl she often spent her summers with her favorite Aunt in Charleston where she enjoyed the best of Charleston’s culture and offerings. As a teenager, she worked as a waitress in a local diner to help support her family. After graduating High School, she worked in Manning for an attorney whose daughter attended college in Virginia. Traveling with them to Virginia to take his daughter to and from college provided her the first opportunity to travel any distance and her first exposure to Virginia, where she would eventually settle for the majority of her life. In 1954 she married Clyde Hodge also of Manning South Carolina and supported him when he was in Korea serving with the Army and later after settling in Richmond in 1957 while Clyde was attending pharmaceutical school at MCV. They lived in all corners of the city starting in Richmond’s Diesel Housing complex while Clyde was attending MCV, Henrico’s West End Manor neighborhood, Chesterfield County’s Brighton Green neighborhood and lastly the Charter Colony neighborhood in Midlothian. Alice worked for many companies and attorneys across Richmond as an executive assistant and at one time ran her own catering business. She was known for her fanciful parties and social events. An avid bridge player and member of various Women’s Clubs around Richmond, she had an extensive circle of friends across Richmond. In 1997 she retired and began a new chapter in her life full of travel and adventures she had long put off. She traveled around the world to see its many sites and cultures including Europe, Egypt, China, Alaska, Hawaii and many of America’s most famous landmarks. In retirement she enjoyed spending time with her friends and family when she was not on a new world adventure. She enjoyed a long life blessing all who knew her with her wry sense of humor. As her sons, we were blessed to have such a loving and caring mother. She was a member of the Bon Air Baptist Church for over 50 years and will be remembered there by family in a small private ceremony.
