Mary was born to Walter A. Wood and Lilly Mae (Moore) Wood on a family farm near Lu Verne, Iowa on August 26th 1933 and was the youngest child of 16. She attended Lu Verne schools until High School graduation, then moved to Algona, Iowa working as a Telephone Operator until she met Duane after World War 2. They were married on November 6th 1952 and raised a family of 8 children. While raising a big family she still found time to work at Snap-On tools in Algona, Iowa. They eventually moved to Peoria, Arizona where she worked at Revlon before retiring. Mary was a woman of small stature, but had a huge smile that could light up a room and she loved to laugh. She was strong enough to raise a family of 8 children but it was her tender nature that will be missed the most and has left a defining mark on the children and grand-children that she adored and helped raise.
Funeral Service was held at Best Funeral Services in Peoria AZ on the 13th of May followed by a burial next to her beloved Husband Duane at Holy Cross Cemetery at Avondale, Arizona.
