Barbara Clark Ethington Wood Obituary

Barbara Wood passed away on March 26, 2016. She was born on December 17, 1928 to Vera and Harry Clark in Utah. She spent her early childhood in Nevada, before moving to California. She spent the rest of her life in either Sutter or Yuba Counties, the last 5 decades in her home on Wood Lane in Linda. This was the home her second husband built for her and her six children; one of the reasons that this home was very special to her and the home she would not leave.

Barbara was married to Harold Ethington from 1948 until his death in 1955. They had five children: Harold Lynn (Wendy), Daryl (Chelle), Dale (Kay), Gary (Sandra), and Cheryl York. Barbara was married to Walter Wood from 1959 until his death in 2012. Walter brought into this marriage three children: Dawn, Terry (Jay), and Walter (Carol). Barbara would complete the immediate family with the birth of Penny in 1962. Barbara has 17 grandchildren, over 30 great-grandchildren, and a growing number of great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her son Harold Lynn Ethington. Genealogy was a life time interest. She taught others how to research their backgrounds and was able to trace part of her own family history into the 1300s.

A memorial service will be held on March 31, 2016 at 1:00 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ, of Latter Day Saints, 1997 North Beale Rd. Linda, CA.
