Mary V. (Stoker) Rood, 74, of Franklin, MA died on December 17th, 2015 after a long, hard battle with brain cancer. Born in the Bronx, New York City, she was the daughter of the late Frederick E. Stoker and Mary L. (Oglesby) Stoker. Beloved wife of the late LTC. Robert D. Rood (USA ret.) She is the loving mother of Robert A. Rood and his wife Elizabeth Desjardins of Bellingham and her daughter Heidi Rood of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She leaves behind three well loved grandchildren, Robert, Chloe and Jonah. She was predeceased by her sister Olga of California. She also leaves behind her favorite dog Synamon. A resident of Mendon for 20 years prior to moving back to Franklin, she lived and traveled throughout the continental US. She spent her career as an elementary school teacher, working in school districts from Monterey, CA to West Point, NY as well as Easton and Mendon, MA. She also served as an Army spouse for 20 years, having the tough job of keeping her home safe when the US Army twice deployed her husband to Vietnam.
