I am so sorry for your loss, your mother was a wonderful person. I havent seen her in many many years but I remember her as a very nice and caring person and mother. You would never believe she was 94 years old, she looks just as I remember her. You were blessed to have her for so long, I know she will be missed so much by all of you, my thoughts and prayers are with you

Teresa Brown left a message on March 1, 2019:
Sorry for your loss. Always loved her. Was the nurse when I went to Philippi Elementary School and a volinteer after I started working there. I am still there and missed her after she left. Just a little funny but good thing about her. I would tell her she was like a bulldog coming after our time sheets if we didn’t get them turned in. I was always forgetting mine. Glad she did come after me. Remember her living in the brick house beside ofAB ball field. My husband also mowed for her several times. Very good lady. Have often wondered about her. Will surely be missed. Her friend Teresa from Philippi Elementry.

Please accept my deepest condolences with the loss of your sweet mother. Mrs. Woodford was always so welcoming when we would come to the house to play. She was such a kind person, very involved in the Presbyterian Church in sunday school, bible school and the choir. A dear person. Becky Nestor Thacker
