Dorothy "Ruth" Wood, age 74, of Fort Collins, died peacefully on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 at Balfour Retirement Community in Louisville, Colo., after recent medical struggles. She was born on February 3, 1938, in Eaton, Colo., the daughter of Joe G. and Mary Romero.

Raised in La Salle, Ruth graduated from La Salle High School and later received a Bachelor of Science degree in education from Colorado State College, now the University of Northern Colorado. After graduation, Ruth took a teaching job in Ilwaco, Wash. where she taught high school English for a year. She subsequently taught in Grand Junction, Colo. and then Loveland, Colo.

In 1968, Ruth married her husband of 41 years, Robert H. Wood and relocated to Fort Collins, Colo. She lived the majority of her adult life in Fort Collins, raising a happy family and substitute teaching in the Poudre R-1 school district for many of those years. Ruth and Bob relocated to Arvada, Colo. in 2007 to be closer to their children and grandchildren.

Ruth is survived by her daughter, Robilyn Robison and her husband Colin Robison of Arvada; her son, Robert C. Wood and his wife Eileen Wood of Arvada; two sisters, Jane Bedan and her husband Stan Bedan of La Salle, and Janet Miller and her husband Larry Miller of Kersey; three brothers, Leo Romero and his wife Gregoria Romero of La Salle, Clyde Romero and his wife Bertha Romero of La Salle, and Harold Romero of Boston; two sisters-in-law, Dorothy Romero of Greeley and Angie Romero of La Salle; and four beautiful grandchildren, Samantha Kate Wood, age 8, Connor Adlai Robison, age 4, Allison Paige Wood, age 3, and Owen Robert Robison, age 23 months. She is preceded in death by her husband, Robert H. Wood, two brothers, Gilbert Romero and Joe Romero, and her parents, Joe G. Romero and Mary Romero.

Ruth will be remembered as a devoted wife and mother, a doting grandmother, and a generous soul. Her love and dedication to her grandchildren was a great blessing for her children. She will be fondly remembered and sorely missed.
