Mary Jo Meeker, 76, passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, February 16, 2018. Born May 17, 1941, in Earle, AR, she was the daughter of the late Fred Alonzo Wood and the late Mamie Bell McCorkle Wood. She was a homemaker, and of Baptist faith. She had tremendous love for her family, especially her grandkids and great- grandchild. One of her greatest joys was spoiling them, but those who knew Mary will remember that she had no fear of giving tough love, and knew she would always tell it like it was. Her family and friends knew her to be an unselfish person, who would do anything for anybody if she was able. Mary loved to fish and play bingo. Her family will always remember that she also loved telling jokes “even when she forgot the funny part.” A very kind and loving woman, she will be deeply missed by all that knew her.
