Funeral Home: J.C. Kirby & Son Lovers Lane Chapel
Geraldine Faye Childress Wood, born Feb. 3, 1941, a child of the late Melvin and Lena Childress in Edmonson County, died July 22, 2013, a child of God Most High.
The baby of 13 siblings, she is survived by three: RA Childress and Leda Childress (Kenneth) both of Louisville; and Wilbur Childress (Georgia Belle) of Cub Run.
Geraldine had no children of her own, but all her many nieces and nephews served that role well. Geraldine Faye was the faithful wife of 31 years to the late Thurmond Eugene Wood and worked as diligently inside the home as she did in public work, retiring from Country Oven Bakery in 1999. Her favorite activities were cooking, cleaning, ironing and hand quilting. She was an active and diligent servant of Jesus Christ with the Lost River Church of Christ, a godly woman and a role model for many.
Funeral services will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at J.C. Kirby & Son Lovers Lane Chapel, with burial in Fairview Cemetery. Visitation will be from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday.
