Alice M. Hoodenpyle, 69, died at her Klipsan Beach residence on November 11, 2013
surrounded by the family she loved. The daughter of Dorsey and Doris Geiger, she
was born November 18, 1943 in The Dalles, Oregon. She graduated from The Dalles High
School and on December 2, 1961 married Frank Hoodenplye in The Dalles. Moving to Portland,
Alice was a wife, mother and homemaker. Alice was a professional cake baker who also
was employed in other retail jobs. Family was paramount however. Having vacationed
often on the Peninsula, she and Frank moved to Klipsan Beach seven years ago. Alice enjoyed
cooking and baking and video games. She loved birds, bears, the outdoors and her three
Yorkies. Very much her own person, she was a woman with a strong work ethic and convictions
who enjoyed being a homemaker and mother.
Beside her husband of nearly 52 years, Alice is survived by daughter Marcella Ryerson
of Portland, OR; sons Cary Lee Hoodenpyle and Tyler Hoodenpyle both of Vancouver, WA; brother LeRoy Geiger of Thailand; grandchildren Samantha Hoodenpyle, Morgan Hemphill, and Ajay
and Marissa Ryerson. She was preceded in death by her parents.
Graveside service was held at Lone Fir Cemetery in LongBeach, Washington. A gathering to honor her
life was held at the family home in Klipsan Beach. Her guestbook is available on-line at
