Obituary Condolences

Dorothy May Louise (Ostrom) WOOD It is with deep sadness that the family of Dorothy May Louise Wood announces her quiet passing on December 6, 2009. Born in Yakima, Washington on August 26, 1927 to Charles and Louise Ostrom, Dorothy grew up in West Seattle graduating from West Seattle High School in 1945, and the University of Washington in 1948. She married Charles R. Wood on December 30th, 1946 in West Seattle, where they raised their family. Dorothy & Charles co-authored several books detailing early railroad history. Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband Charles (1924 - 2002). Keeping abreast of current events was a favorite pastime, accomplished through the daily reading of both Seattle Newspapers. A long time member of West Seattle Presbyterian Church, she is survived by her 7 sons, Steven (Susan) Wood of Anacortes, Wa, Robert (Sue) Wood of Lake Tapps, Wa, Michael Wood of Lake Tapps, Wa, Donald (Lori) Wood of Lacey, Wa, Thomas Wood of Seattle, Wa, James (Vicki) Wood of Maple Valley, Wa, and Charles (Lorrie) Wood of Fox Island, Wa; 10 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. A memorial service for family and friends will be held at the Howden-Kennedy Funeral Home Saturday, December 19, 2009 at 11:00 am.
