Colleen H. Hodge

June 19, 1922 - June 24, 2013

ALEXANDRIA — Colleen H. Hodge, 91, Alexandria, died June 24, 2013, at Community Northview Care Center, Anderson, after an extended illness.

She was born June 19, 1922, in Warren, the daughter of Earl Crispen and Erma (McIntyre) Crispen, and had resided in Alexandria since 1941.

Colleen was active in her local church, the Alexandria Church of the Nazarene. She served as president of the Nazarene Women’s Missionary Society and was Vacation Bible School supervisor for 12 years. She was also active in the missionary work of the Northeast Indiana District of the Church of the Nazarene.

In 1971, she and her late husband, the Rev. Max Hodge, pastored Nazarene Churches in Selma, Indian Meadows in Anderson, Gaston and Mayfield Church in Muncie. They retired from pastoral ministry in 2008.

Colleen devoted her life to her Lord, her church and her family. To that confidently we say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

Survivors include a daughter, Kathy (Phillip) Scott of Indianapolis; three sons, Bob (Joyce) Hodge of Markleville, Jim (Jeannie) Hodge of Bossier City, La., and the Rev. Rick (Anita) Hodge of Topeka, Kan.; three grandchildren, Tracy (Fred) McIlrath of Middletown, Kimberly (Steve) Lupo of Commack, N.Y., and Melissa (Andy) Fesler of Pendleton; six great-grandchildren, Conor and Cameron McIlrath, Nicholas and Julia Lupo, and Blake and Max Fesler; three brothers, Robert (Shirley) Crispen of Warren, and Dick (Rita) Crispen and Ronald Crispen, all of Bluffton; two sisters, Doris (John) Willett of Roanoke, and Bernice Shideler of Warren; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 69 years, the Rev. Max E. Hodge in 2010; two brothers and three sisters.

A Home Going Service will take place at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Owens Funeral Home, 412 N. Harrison St., Alexandria, with the Rev. Rick Hodge officiating. Entombment will follow in the Garden Mausoleum of Park View Cemetery in Alexandria.
