Our dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Donna Lee Wood, slipped away peacefully on April 10, 2021.
A funeral service will be at 12:30 PM, Friday, April 16, 2021 at Parkway Funeral Service, 2330 Tyler Parkway, Bismarck. Visitation one hour before at 11:30 AM.
Donna was born September 12, 1931 to Vern and Alice Nellis in Waterloo, Iowa. She graduated high school in Waterloo and attended Drake University in Des Moines, IA.
Donna married William Wood in 1951. To that union three children were born, Teresa, Timothy and Todd. She was active in PTA and Girl Scouts when they were young. She also volunteered in many art and music foundations in Bismarck and La Quinta, CA. Her involvement with the Fort Lincoln Foundation’s fundraising for furnishings of the house was very memorable and dear to her.
Her many activities that she enjoyed were antiquing, reading, playing bridge and traveling. Her biggest enjoyment was shopping for and spending as much time as she could with her four grandsons. The last years of her life were highlighted with four special great-grandchildren.
Donna is survived by her daughter, Teresa (Robert) Moreland; son, Todd (Kathy) Wood; grandsons, Timothy (Jackie) Wood, Michael (Amy) Moreland, Devin (Mandie) Wood, Matthew (Ashley) Moreland and great-grandchildren, Tristin Wood, Trevin Wood, Mac Moreland and Ella Wood.
Donna was preceded in death by her parents, sisters, Betty and Mary and son Timothy Wood.
Memorials can be sent to St. Jude’s Hospital.
