MARY WOOD Obituary
Mary Rosalie Widdis Wood 1926 ~ 2010 Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Mary Rosalie (Widdis) Wood, passed away on Oct. 20, 2010 in Riverton, UT.Mary was born on June 30, 1926 in Lansing, MI to Jesse Lee Widdis and Beulah Ervilla Guthrie. She was only three when the Great Depression began. In her early years she learned the value of family, hard work and thrift. She married Harry Jack Wood on May 12, 1955 in Angola, IN. While living in Michigan, they had two sons and in 1970, moved to Salt Lake City, UT. Mary was first and foremost a wife and mother. Although she worked outside the home from time to time, her greatest satisfaction came from caring for the needs of her family. This she did very well. She was also a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her love of children was of great benefit when it came to church service. With the move to Utah, she was able to attend church regularly with her sons. She served for many years in the Primary organization as a teacher of young children and loved it. She also served in various positions in the Relief Society; never truly happy unless she was working to help someone in need. Her prayers of many years were answered in 1977 when her marriage to her husband was solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. Mary is survived by her husband Harry, sons Kenneth (Peggy) and Charles, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; her beloved sister Barbara Strong (Jack). She is preceded in death by her parents, brother Paul and sister Shirley. Funeral Services will be held Monday, Oct. 25th at 11:00 a.m. in the Granger 15th Ward Chapel, 2835 S. 2855 W., West Valley City, UT. Family and friends may call at the same location one hour prior to services. Interment will be at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park.
