Dana Jean Wood, age 64

Dana Jean Wood, age 64, of Strunk, Kentucky, joyfully crossed the Jordan and started her heavenly life on February 25, 2009. Her family was by her side.

Celebration of Life Services will be held Sunday, March 1, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. in the chapel of Pine Knot Funeral Home with Rev. Stanley Taylor, Rev. Braxton King, and Rev. Harry Waters officiating. Private interment services followed at the Wood Anderson Cemetery in Strunk. Memorial contributions are suggested to the American Cancer Society, The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews or the church of your choice in her memory.

Born June 15, 1944, in Strunk, Kentucky, she was the daughter of the late Ben S. and Georgia K. King Anderson. Also preceding her in death is a sister Patsy Ruth Anderson and an infant nephew Terry.

She was a member of the Marshes Siding Church of God, a devoted homemaker and military wife and later found another true calling in retail. She enjoyed attending church spending time with her family and friends, antiquing, and fishing. Her goal in life was to testify of God’s enduring love to all that she met, and in this she succeeded. She was a loving mother and beloved “Duchess” of her children and grandchildren.

Mrs. Wood is survived by a daughter Jetondia Wood of Strunk, two sons Shannon Wood of Erlanger, Kentucky and Stephen (and wife Jealene) Wood of Strunk, and Dean Wood the father of her children of Florence, Kentucky. She has six precious grandchildren, and one great grandchild. Also surviving is one brother Darrell (and wife Carolyn Sue) Anderson of Revelo, and three sisters; Deloris Sue Young of Revelo, Mary Alice (and husband “Ermon”) of Strunk, and Kaye Anderson of Winfield, Tennessee. Her life long friend is Rethia Lloyd of Belleview, Florida. She also will be sadly missed by several aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins and other relatives including the Wood, Anderson, King, Ryan, and Daugherty families and many friends and acquaintances too numerous to mention.

Pine Knot Funeral Home assisted the family with funeral arrangements.
