Mary Wood, 68, of Cleveland, Ohio, formerly of McMinnville, passed from this life Monday, Jan. 10 at UH Cleveland Medical Center in Cleveland.

Mary was born Friday, June 26, 1953 in McMinnville, the daughter of the late Malcom R. and Carrie M. Wood. Surviving are brothers Harold (Rubie) Wood, Luther Wood, Orbin (Sue) Wood, Henry (Hattie) Wood, William Wood, Paul (Sharon) Wood, sisters Dorothy Ramsey, Catherine Young, Yvonne Wood, sister-in-law Carrie Wood and numerous nephews, nieces, family and friends.

She was preceded in death by parents Malcom R. and Carrie M. Wood, son Kerry L. Guy, brothers Clarence Wood, Algoma Wood, Carlous Wood, James Wood, sister Manila Marshall, brothers-in-law Charles Marshall and Russell Ramsey, and sisters-in-law Eloise Wood and Barbara Wood.

While we don’t understand Mary’s rapid departure, we recall one of her favorite verses found in Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” We will miss her dearly and trust she has joyfully been welcomed in her heavenly home.

The family will receive friends from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 22, at Martin Charge Cemetery in McMinnville with Michael Harris officiating. Interment will follow at Martin Charge Cemetery. Online condolences may be made at
