Alice Faye Mooney

January 8, 2022, 70, Goldsboro –

Alice Faye Mooney of Goldsboro, North Carolina, was welcomed into the arms of her Lord and Savior while surrounded by family on January 8, 2022. She was born to Charlie and Myrtle Radford on February 14, 1951, in Castalia, North Carolina. She was one of twelve living children born to the Radford family.

Alice studied cosmetology and spent many years working as a hairdresser in New Jersey before relocating to North Carolina. She retired from the United States Postal Service and has since spent her time doing the things she loves the most – spoiling her grandchildren, attending church, arts & crafts, and volunteering.

Alice was a loyal servant to God, first and foremost. She loved the church and enjoyed sharing the love and warmth of our savior, Jesus Christ, with as many people as possible. She regularly attended Ray of Hope Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church and cherished all the friendships made there during this time.

A service to celebrate Alice’s life will be held Thursday, January 13th at 6:00 pm in the chapel of Shumate-Faulk Funeral Home. The family will greet friends following the service at the funeral home. A private committal service will be held at Wayne Memorial Park.

She is survived by her daughters, Kathryn Jackson, of Boone, NC, and her three children, Alexander (23), Christopher (20), and Diana Jackson (17) and Rebecca Mooney Goff of Goldsboro, NC, her husband, Michael, and two children, Amelia (5) and Callie (18 months). She is also survived by her siblings Juanita Dickens, Annette Tanner, Charlie Radford Jr., Jerry Radford, and Roy Radford.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard M. Mooney, her parents, and her siblings Thomas Radford, Lorean “Lore” VanArtsdalen, Gene “Jack” Radford, James Radford, John Radford, and Raymond Radford.

In addition to her family, Alice would have wanted to extend a special thank you to a few of her closest friends, Mary Fail, Betty Jordan, and Corin Craft who stayed in constant communication and had frequent lunch visits at her home when it became too difficult to get out and about. Alice had another special friend of the family, Kathryn “Katie” Blizzard, an unofficially “adopted daughter” who consistently went above and beyond over the last decade. She smiled fondly when reflecting on these treasured friendships during her last days.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the family is not accepting any home visits at this time. In lieu of visits, your thoughts and prayers are much appreciated. Arrangements are in the care of Shumate-Faulk Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc.
