Linda Jane Wood, 78, of Springfield, passed away on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at Memorial Medical Center. She was born on February 10, 1941 in West Salem, IL to Leslie Ray and Martha Rodgers Anderson. Linda married Richard S. Wood on October 10, 1968 and he preceded her in death on November 7, 1998.

Linda was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She will be more than missed by those who held her near including her four children: Richard Rock Wood, Kelly Wood both of Naples FL, Stacy Wood and Dawn (Mike) Harr of Springfield, IL, five grandchildren: Brandon (Brenda) Hauck, Shay Hauck, Lakyn Sanders, Jessica (Kyle) Fritsch, and Sarah Wood, four great-grandchildren: Michael Hauck, Brenna Hauck, Apollos Hauck, and Bradlee Stieghorst, one sister, Rosella Spreen of Jacksonville, IL., and several nieces, nephews and church family. Linda was most recently preceded in death by her loving siblings Opal Johnson, Leslie Anderson, Betty Rutherford and Lil Bailey.

Linda graduated from Illiopolis High School and operated her own hair salon out of their home for many years. Because Linda had made her relationship with the Lord a top priority in her life, she was most passionate about serving the Lord and did so by being a Sunday School Teacher at Grace Baptist Church, where she was an active member.

Visitation will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m followed by funeral services officiated by Pastor Thad Peacock at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at Grace Baptist Church, 2812 South Walnut, Springfield, IL. Burial will follow at Camp Butler National Cemetery.

The love and joy that Linda brought to so many will never be forgotten. She was a true inspiration to everyone around her and I am lucky to have known her for the time that I did. My heart breaks for your family during this time. She will be missed. A mother is with us always, first in her lifetime, then forever in our memory. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
