Elisa G. Wood



Elisa Godfrey Wood, 80, of Wallace left this earthly life for her eternal rest on October 4, 2018 from Day Spring Assisted Living.

She was born on October 15, 1937 in El Paso, Texas; the daughter of the late John and Gregoria Holgiun Godfrey. She was also predeceased by her brother, Ruben Godfrey.

Elisa was a member of Island Creek Baptist Church.

Surviving is her best friend and husband of 59 years, Macon M. Wood of the home; her children, Gregory Lee Wood and wife, Brenda of Ocean Isle Beach, David M. Wood of Burlington and Phyllis A. Turnage and husband, Wayne of Ocean Isle Beach; grandchildren, Joshua Turnage, Kayla Turnage, Olivia Turnage, Heather Wood, Whitney Wood, Leslie Wood, Melissa Wood Siler and Chris, Lauren Wood and Timothy Wood; great grandson, Tayven Turnage and numerous family and friends that loved Elisa dearly.

Elisa was a devoted wife and loving mother, grandmother and sister. She found
great joy in the simplest of things, but her greatest joy was family. Being a good neighbor and friend, she was loved by all who knew her. Elisa was a woman of uncommon character, beauty and grace; and to those who knew her, “an instrument of God’s love on this earth.” Elisa will surely be missed but cherished memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Her family is comforted knowing that Elisa is now with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Funeral service will be held at 3:00pm on Sunday, October 7, 2018 at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home, Wallace Chapel with her pastor, the Reverend Dr. Ronald Ginn officiating.
