March 7, 1922 ~ July 15, 2020 (age 98)


Frances Catherine WOOD (nee: HINCHLIFF

March 7,1922- July 15,2020

Frances WOOD, precious wife of Aubrey B. WOOD, went home to her Lord  on July 15th, 2020, at the age of 98 years. 

Left to cherish her memory and carry on her legacies are her eight children: Lomai WOOD, Carroll YOUNG (Wayne), Murray WOOD, Deirdre FENRICH (Marvin), Ceire BARYCKI, Tara WOOD (Wayne), Reva YOUNG (Bryan), and William WOOD.  Also, her 15 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren are pleased to honor her memory by learning the pathways of grace.

Frances was predeceased by her ardent and dedicated husband, Aubrey, her parents Bert and Minnie HINCHLIFF, infant daughter Ruva, infant granddaughter Camille, and grandsons Marc and Treven.

Mom was a repository of many facets of genius, being raised in the 30’s, fledged during WW II, and matured in the crucible of farm life with its many challenges.  She was a wordsmith, a chef, a musician, a naturalist, a pioneer, a horse harnesser, a veteran (nurse), and a tester of mettle, including her own.  We honor her for all of this, but mostly for risking her own life to give us ours, and for keeping the faith, that we may give glory to God.

A graveside service and memorial will be held for the family at a later date.
