Shirley K. Wood Obituary
SHIRLEY K WOOD A private family gathering will be held to honor Shirley K. Wood, who passed peacefully in her home surrounded by family on September 28, 2014. Born August 24, 1942 in Artois, California, she was a lifelong Orland resident. Daughter of O. G. and Mildred Boyles, she married Larry Wood and raised four children in Orland, recently celebrat-ing their 55th wedding anniversary in September. She began work for the Orland Unified School District as a payroll clerk and retired after 32 years of service as the district's business manager in 2003, guiding the solvent district successfully through superintendents, board changes and unification. Shirley was inducted to the Glenn County Educator's Hall of Fame in 2005. She was an avid Oakland A's and Oakland Raiders fan. Family was always her highest priority and we enjoyed many Sunday dinners where she showcased her talents as an incredible cook. She is survived by her husband, Larry, daughters Jody Samons, Marcy Wood, Dera Miller, son Lorne Wood, son-in-law Dean Miller and daughter-in-law Renee Wood. There are nine grandchildren Amanda, Erica (Gary), Andrew (Shannon), Lauren, Jarren, Kellen, Garrett, Jenna and Benjamin and great grandson Trevor. She is also survived by her sister, Carol Carnagey, and brother, Bob Boyles (Debbie), numerous nieces and nephews and many others she opened her heart and home to. Memorial contributions can be made payable to the Orland Community Scholarship Association at P. O. Box 1084, Orland, CA 95963, noting Shirley's name in the memo line.
