Lynese E. Wood, age 97, went to be with the Lord, peacefully, on Mon. morning, March 25, 2019, at the home of her daughter in Vancouver, WA. She was born Aug. 24, 1921 in Yakima, WA, to Neva and Clarence Williams and was the oldest sister to Mike Williams.
After graduating from Kelso High School, Lynese married Paul Wood in 1940 in Vancouver, WA.
She worked at the cannery in Vancouver and also worked for many years at First National Bank of Oregon in Portland, OR.
Lynese spent her years raising her two children, caring for her husband, working and volunteering at church activities. She loved being around family. Lynese had a wonderful passion for quilting - she won numerous awards for her exquisite quilts.
