Fannie Dell Wood was born July 7, 1892 to James Monroe & Ollie Eva (Hoiser) Farmer in Navarro County Texas. She passed away on April 26, 1982 at Waco, McLennan County Texas. Burial services were at Corley Funeral Home in Corsicana, Navarro County Texas. Interment was at Younger Cemetery, Silver City, Navarro County Texas on April 27, 1982. Rev. B. W. Johnson officiated.

Fannie married Willie A. Wood on August 9, 1911 at Silver City, Texas. WIllie farmed and worked at the Cotton Gin in Purdon Texas. Fannie was a housewife and mother of their three girls, Ollie Edna. married to Marshall Ford Dempsey, Eva Faye, married to Emmitt Cecil Wallace, Maggie Eloise, married to John Morris Tickle. They had five grandchildren and host of great-grandchildren.

Fannie was a wonderful mother and grandmother. She was a wonderful cook and a great seamstress. She crocheted all kind dollies and other wonderful things. She even served as a midwife at times. She always had a grin when the kids came to see her. It was a real treat to go to their house at Christmas.

In the 1940's Tin Foil (Aluminum Foil) was very scare, so when she found some, no matter how small of a piece she would save it and roll it into a ball. Those balls would get to 3 to 4 inches in diameter by Christmas time each year. She would cut out pictures from the Sears & Roebuck Catalog and trace around them on Shoebox cardboard. She would then take the foil and cover the cardboard pieces and make Christmas ornaments that could be hung up.

Fannie was a good Christain woman, she read her bible and prayed for her family every single day. She never went to sleep without praying. She will have her rewards in heaven.
