Adeline Wood, age 90, passed away on Monday, March 7, 2022.
Adeline graduated from Dudley High School, Dudley, GA, in 1949 with high honors. She attended Piedmont College, in Demorest, GA, where she obtained a Bachelor’s Science Degree in Extended General Science and Psychology. She worked most of her way through college and graduated in three years. She taught Biology at Cedartown High School, Cedartown, GA, for four years. Adeline was a secretary at Oconee EMC in Dudley, GA, for eight years. She moved to Marietta, GA, and retired from Lockheed Martin as a C-130J Data Specialist.
Adeline was a member of Dudley Baptist Church and Smyrna First Baptist Church Sunday School. She was very fond of all her nieces and nephews, especially those who lived near her in Marietta. She loved them and treated them as if they were her own; always buying them clothes, giving them money, and taking them on trips. Like Mother Teresa, she said “Life is a song, sing it…”, and she sang life with joy.
Ms. Wood is preceded in death by her parents, John Dudley Wood and Lottie Lola Kemp Wood.
She is survived by several nieces and nephews, and many friends.
The family will receive friends from 1:00 PM until 2:30 PM on Saturday, March 12, 2022, at Townsend Brothers Funeral Home followed by a graveside service at 3:00 PM in Dublin Memorial Gardens. Brother Ed Ellington will officiate.
