Norma June Ashby Hood of El Lago, Texas passed away at home on December 21, 2014 from complications of Alzheimer's disease. She was born in Ratcliff, Houston County, Texas on November 21, 1930 to Frank Ashby and Eunice Barclay Ashby.

Known all her life as June, she was born in a family of medical doctors, and moved to Houston in 1942. After graduating from Sam Houston High School in Houston, she enrolled in Southwestern Business School and began a business career after graduation. She was working for Texaco in downtown Houston when she met her future husband, David G. Hood, at Broadway Baptist Church one Sunday night in September 1952. They were married in that church on January 1, 1954 by pastor Dr. Al Novak in the presence of both families and friends.

Two children were born to June and David, Byron David Hood and Martha Lynn Hood. The children are living proof of how children thrive and grow to be highly successful adults under the love, care, and guidance of a Godly mother. She was the inspiring light of our family, and as Christians, we look forward to joining her in heaven. She was a member of First Baptist Church, Pasadena, Texas at the time of her death.

In addition to being survived by her immediate family, June is survived by sister-in-law Mrs. Marjorie Hood Leavins and daughter-in-law Karen Fisher Hood, as well as by cousins, nephews, one niece, and treasured friends.

Funeral services will be held at 2 pm at First Baptist Church chapel on December 23rd, with visitation with the family for one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow the service at Forest Park East Cemetery in Webster, Texas.
