Chitra Wood of 1322 Community Park Rd., Augusta, GA, passed away 5 August, 2017 in Nakorn Pathom, Thailand while visiting family. Chitra was a loving and fun person in her life, as friends and family will attest. Chitra moved to the U.S. in the 70's and became a citizen on 26 January, 1986 which she was proud of. She is remembered best from people she served while working at Peking Restaurant, Thai Jong Restaurant, Thai Kitchen, and the Rub-It-In Lounge. Everyone that knew her loved her and her sense of humor. She was a people person, and loved to talk and could always make you laugh. Chitra loved everyone but none more than her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her pets. She was happily married to David J. Wood since 8 November, 1983. After services in Nakorn Pathom, Thailand, she will return with her husband to her home in Augusta. At a later date, her ashes will be given to her son as she requested.

Chitra was born on 3 September, 1937 in Bangkok, Thailand to Samarn & Maree Jotivudh. One of her greatest accomplishments in life was her son Kanit (Diappayon) Jacobs, born 26 March, 1964.

She leaves: one son (Kanit Jacobs & wife Lisa Whitfield-Jacobs); one sister Mayuree (Dee) Varasarin; one brother deceased Chet Jotivudh; four grandchildren Ryan Jacobs & soon to be wife Yimaira Castillo, Seren Jacobs & soon to be husband Terell Baker, Lyndon Jacobs, and Meadow Jacobs; four great-grandchildren Adelie & Benjamin Baker, and Sofia & Juan Tzoyontle; six nieces and nephews with 3 children of their own: Bok and sons Money & Mine, Pak, Vanchantra (Pui), Ajima Jotivudh, Mallika (Jip) Varasarin, Montharop (Jut) Boonthawee & husband Kawin Boonthawee and their daughter Paan Boonthawee; three pets that she treated more as her children, Kitt, Daisy Mae, and her favorite Silver Wings.

She will be missed by many, but most of all her husband of 34 years. There will always be a hole in his heart that will never be filled by another person. We miss you my Love.
