Obituary for Alice Moore Blankenship

Alice Moore Blankenship, devoted wife, mother and grandmother, departed this life for her heavenly home on January 18, 2023. Beloved wife of the late Larry Donald Blankenship, Alice was born on September 29,1923 to Donnie Tudor and Otis Fletcher Moore. She is survived by five of her nine siblings: Louise Taylor, Inez Whitlow, Bernice Lewis and Warren Moore. Left to treasure her memory are her devoted children, Danny Blankenship (Susan) and Cheryl Jenkins (Howard). Alice was so very proud of her adored grandsons Howard IV, (Gin), Scott (Lauren) and Peyton (Becky), and so thankful for her great-grandchildren: Haley, Matthew, Howard V, Taylor, Anna Scott, Ryan, Peyton, Sallie, Jack, Virginia and Robert.

A devoted lifetime member of Zion Baptist Church, Alice served her Lord with great faithfulness, heart and soul. Her beautiful and strong spirit, graciousness and unwavering faith touched everyone who knew her. While we, her family, know she is now among the heavenly angels, to us she was always an angel here on earth.

A special thank you to her long time, devoted caregivers, Mary Smith, Patsy Kenan and the late Virginia Boney.

A service will be held in memory of Alice on January 26, 2:00 pm at Zion Baptist Church, 974 Zion Church Rd., Emporia, VA 23847. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution to Zion Baptist Church, c/o 2755 Rolling Acres Rd., Emporia, VA 23847.
