Margie Yvonne Wood Israel January 30, 1927 - June 22, 2010

Born in Athens, Texas on January 30, 1927 to Minnie Lizzie Williams Wood and Henry Houston Wood, Margie moved to California in the 1940s where she married and had four children.

Margie was a woman of many talents and interests, including writing music, stories, and poetry; gardening, genealogy, and internet. She worked for many years as the first Director of the Stockton Emergency Food Bank, providing assistance for needy families throughout San Joaquin County. Margie was an inspiration to everyone who knew her for her love, her generosity, and her optimistic attitude toward life and humanity. She was also a great animal lover.

Margie's greatest joy was her family. She is survived by her children, Connie Israel, Ginny Nino and husband Oscar, Susie Israel, and Michael Israel and wife Jenefer; grandchildren, Chris Elsner and husband Don, Liz McFarland and husband John, Will Nino, Jodi Tinkovics and husband Ray, Blake Medeiros and wife Lindsay who are expecting their first child, Michael Israel, Jr., and Jackson Israel; great grandchildren, Taylor Elsner, Victoria Elsner, Cameron Elsner and Ciera Tinkovics; sister, June Skinner; brother-in-law, Bob Israel; and many devoted nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the staff at St. Joseph's Hospital and all the many doctors in attendance for their compassion during Margie's illness.

A private service will be held for the family. Anyone wishing to pay their respects to Margie may make a contribution to or volunteer at the Greater Stockton Emergency Food Bank or a charity of their choice.
