OBITUARY OF OLIVIA LEE DANIEL WOOD From The Roanoke Leader June 13, 1938 Mrs. Wyatt Wood Passes At Her Home On Louina Street

Mrs. Olivia Daniel Wood died at 4:30 Monday morning at her home on Louina Street. She had suffered a stroke of paralysis recently and gradually grew weaker until the end came. Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon at the residence by her pastor, Rev. H. P. Williams, assisted by Revs. T. E. Steely and Belt White. Burial was in the local cemetery with Quattlebaum directing.

Mrs. Wood was the widow of the late Wyatt W. Wood, long prominent in the business interests of this community. She was 73 years old. Surviving are five children: Mrs. W. T. A. Huey, Mrs. H. D. Cowden, Blake Wood, of Roanoke; Theo Wood, of Jackson, Miss.; Mrs. C. G. Rogers, of Baltimore; four brothers: George and H. D. Daniel, of Frankling (should be Franklin), Ga., and Rufus and Frank Daniel, of Oklahoma.,

In the death of this good wife and mother another of Roanoke's early residents has gone. For many years ill health had prevented her activities outside her home and many of those who have moved here in recent years did not know her, but those who have lived here longer knew her well, sorrow at her passing, and sympathize with her loved ones in their sorrow.
