Life Legacy

Dollie Rosetta (Crawford) Woody, of Edgewater and a long time resident of Kent and Stow, Ohio, passed away at the age of 109 on the 15th of February 15, 2013 at the home of her daughter, Betty Woody.

Born in Morganton, Georgia December 28th, 1903 to Ida (Tipton) and William Grant Crawford, she was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years John (JC) Woody, sons Deward and Ralph Woody, daughter Verba (Smith) and granddaughter Susan Woody.

Dollie is survived by two daughters; Betty Woody of Edgewater, Maryland, and Brenda Hughlett (Larry) of Stow, Ohio, and one daughter-in-law Hazel Woody of Blue Ridge, Georgia. Also survived by 10 grandchildren, and numerous great and great - great grandchildren.

Dollie had a very long full life and was a very special person. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and loved her.

Dollie was an incredible storyteller. We loved to sit and listen to her talk about what life was like growing up in the early 1900's in the north Georgia mountains.

They had no supermarkets so raising pigs and chickens and growing and canning their own fruits and vegetables to make it through the cold winters was necessary for survival. A fireplace was used for heating and a wood stove was used for cooking. Food was kept cold in the hot summers in a spring house, which was a little shed built over a natural cold mountain spring.
They had none of the conveniences of today's indoor plumbing, appliances, computers, telephones, tvs or even a car, yet they still managed to have fun and enjoy each others company.
Until a few years ago, Dollie could remember and recite every classmate's name in her first grade class.
She loved to read her bible, play a card game called "rook" and always enjoyed talking with young people.
Dollie was a wonderful, kind, and giving, person and we will miss her.

A graveside service will be held at Standing Rock Cemetery in Kent, Ohio at a later date. An online Guest book is available at
