Anna Helen Rood

1915-2015 DALTON Anna Helen Rood, age 99, formerly of 48 Deming Street in Dalton, passed away Friday, May 29, 2015 while residing at Mt. Greylock Extended Care Facility where she had lived for the past three years. Born in Dalton on October 8, 1915, the daughter of the late John and Helen Frambach Connelly, Anna was educated in Dalton schools. She lived in Dalton all but five years of her life. She worked for a short time for Crane & Company but spent the majority of her life as a stay-at-home mom. For many years she was a member of the American Cancer Society and the Dalton Youth Center. She will always be remembered by many friends and neighbors for her extravagant outside holiday decorations on her home and her love for her outdoor gardens and flowers. She was predeceased by her husband, Gerald Rood Sr. whom she married in 1938 and passed away in 1982; her youngest son, Gerald Rood Jr. passed away in 1964; her middle daughter, Judith Rood Phoenix passed away in 1997; and her oldest son Ralph Rood passed away in 2004. Survivors include her two daughters, Donna Rood Davis and June Belcher of Dalton; son-in-law, Michael Davis; daughter-in-law, Marilyn Rood; three grandsons, two granddaughters, four great-grandsons, two great- granddaughters, a great great -granddaughter, a great great -grandson and several nieces and nephews. Our family would like to express our love and thanks to the devoted staff at Mt. Greylock Extended Care Facility and Hospice Care in the Berkshires who loved and cared for her like she was their own. People who no longer can care for themselves and/or are terminally ill as our mom was, deserve to have the excellent care of an Extended Care Facility and HospiceCare. Therefore, in honor of Anna, memorial contributions would be greatly appreciated made payable to either the Mt. Greylock Activities Fund or Hospice Care in the Berkshires in care of DERY FUNERAL HOME, 54 Bradford Street, Pittsfield, MA 01201. FUNERAL NOTICE: At Anna's request there will be no calling hours or funeral services. After cremation, she will be buried in Ashuelot Street Cemetery in Dalton with her family at her side and she will spend eternity with her beloved late husband and late children. The DERY-FOLEY FUNERAL HOME is handling arrangements.
