May 8, 1924 - September 24, 2020
Alene Hendrix Dewberry, age 96, passed away peacefully at her home in Okeechobee, Florida, with her loving family by her side on Thursday, September 24, 2020. Alene was a devout Christian who started and ended each day reading scripture. Widowed at a young age, she was an incredibly strong woman who created a loving and stable home for herself and her children. She was incredibly nurturing and loved to garden and surround herself with Gods beauty. Her handmade biscuits were second only to the loving hugs she gave her many grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She so loved spending time with family near and far and would hop in the car on a moment’s notice with a cooler in front seat filled with cokes and peanuts. She was preceded in death by her husband C. D., parents Jack and Malice Graham Hendrix; brothers James, Billy, Bobby and Neil as well as her sister Frances Ridgeway and sons-in-law Phil Snyder and Rusty Cisco. Her surviving family of four generations continue her circle of love with son Denny; daughters Carylon Snyder, Brenda (Dusty) Sexton, Marcia (A. D,) Wallace, and Debra Cisco along with seven grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren; sisters Jimmie Sue Simms and Patricia (Buford) Lewis and brother Lavon Hendrix. Love of God and family first are the legacy of all who entered her circle of light will be carried with them like a warm blanket enfolding them. Her life began on Sand Mountain and her journey will end there laid to rest in Geraldine Cemetery alongside her husband C. D. just ten days before their wedding anniversary. Arrangements are under the care of Geraldine Funeral Home, Geraldine AL. Visitation Thursday, October 1st 12pm with service to follow.
