Ms. Bettye Ruth Wood of Marianna entered into eternal rest on Thursday, April 26th at Jackson Hospital in Marianna.  She was 69 years old.

 A native of Jackson County, she was a 1969 graduate of the Jackson County Training School fighting Panthers.  She was an avid sports fan, her favorite team was the Dallas Cowboys.   Bettye was a loving sister, a caring aunt and friend.  She will be deeply missed by many.

 Precious memories will forever remain with one daughter, Taquana Renee’ Wood of Manteca, California; three grandchildren and one great grandchild; two sisters, Edna Williams Swilley of San Jose, California and Sylvia Diane Williams of Tallahassee, Florida; one brother, Gary Eugene Williams of New Orleans, Louisiana; special friend, Rocky Swilley Summers; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

 A service of remembrance will be held Saturday, May 26th at 10a.m. at the pavilion at Citizen’s Lodge.  Words of Comfort will be given by Rev. Glorida Borders Wynn and Rev. Ohara Johnson; reflections will be given by family and friends with arrangements entrusted to the Caring Staff at Peoples Funeral Home of Marianna.
