Mrs. Hood was born September 17, 1933 to J. Y. Reeves and Lillian Ilene Worsham Reeves. She had a servant’s heart, always putting the needs of others before her own. She was an excellent cook and seamstress using those talents to care for her family and those in need. Most of all she loved God with all her heart and that guided every aspect of her life. She served as organist and Women’s Ministry Leader for years. She reared her children and grandchildren to love God first and to make him the center of their lives. The many nights spent on her knees in prayer for her family has resulted in a legacy of a family who loves and serves God and others, following the example set by Mama and Mamaw. She will be missed by all who loved and knew her.
