She was preceded in death by her husband, Jimmy Wood; parents, Luard and Della Corley; and siblings, Nelson Corley and Inez Attaway.

She is survived by her sons, Terry Wood (Delores) of Jasper, and Jed Wood (Kristie) of Empire; grandsons, Zach Wood of Hoover and Cory Wood of Huntsville; brother, Phillip Corley Sr. (Evelyn) of Empire; brother-in-law, Bobby Wood (Ailene) of Trussville; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks all donations be made to New Canaan Baptist Church, c/o Joyce Reeves, 217 Clark Rd., Empire, AL 35063.

Special thanks to Kindred Hospice, Betty Roberts, and Laurie Key.
