CHAFFEE - Mary Bernice Wood, 72, died at 9:45 p.m. Dec. 27, 2002, at the Chaffee Nursing Center. Born Feb. 28, 1930, in Blytheville, Ark., daughter of the late Albert Gustess Jackson and Pearlie Thrasher Jackson Miller.
She retired as a machine operator from the Florsheim Shoe Factory in Cape Girardeau. Her husband, Joseph James Wood, preceded her in death on Feb. 6, 1983. Survivors include: three sons, Jerry W. Hampton Sr, Gary L. Wood of Chaffee and Rick Keesee of Cocoa Beach, Fla.; one daughter, Deborah Gramlisch-Carey (Wood) of Chaffee; and 11 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
One brother Henry Agustis Jackson also preceded her in death. Graveside services were conducted at 1 p.m. today at Union Park Cemetery with the Rev. Robert Trankle officiating.

Mom was an avid pet lover! She loved her puppy dogs and cats. If there was ever was a stray she took them in.


She felt sick for months with nausea, then she watched her feet swell & her skin stretch; she struggled to climb stairs, she got breathless quick; she suffered many sleepless nights. She then went through excruciating pain to bring me into this world. Then, she became my nurse, my chef, my maid, my chauffeur, my biggest fan, my teacher, & my best friend. She's struggled for me, cried over me, hoped the best for me & prayed for me. Most of us take our mom for granted. ♥ thank you Mom! Ilove and miss you everyday!
