Rae Wood Obituary

Rae Teachey Wood, age 81, of Wallace left this earthly life for her eternal rest on Sunday, January 28, 2024.

She was born on December 23, 1942, in Pender County and was the daughter of the late Herman C. and Minnie Horrell Teachey. Mrs. Wood was also preceded in death by her sons Randy Jackson and Patrick “Pat” Jackson; and her siblings Pansy Thompson, Allen Teachey, Raymond Teachey, Thomas Teachey, Nathan Teachey and Robert Teachey. 

Mrs. Wood worked as a radiologist assistant at Pender Memorial Hospital until she retired after 25 years.  She was a member of Poston Baptist Church where she enjoyed teaching children’s Sunday school class during the years. 

Surviving to cherish her memory is her devoted husband of 41 years, Marion F. "Woody" Wood; children Cindy Ledford and Donna Hale and her husband, Pat; daughters-in-law Lisa Jackson and Cathy Jackson; grandchildren Shannon Dubois, David Jackson, Crystal Arrowood, Brandon Autry, Kevin Hale, Patrick Hale, Ashley Jackson and Kara Hale; great grandchildren Laurel Olivia Hale, Jackson Alexander Dubois, Abigail English, Aaliyah Duncan, Allison Suddreth; sisters Faye English of Wallace and Margaret Henderson of Wallace; brother Jerry Teachey and wife Sharon of Watha; numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends that loved Rae dearly.

Rae was a loving wife and caring mother, grandmother and sister.  She was a lively woman who enjoyed the simple things in life, but her greatest joy was her family.  She loved her children dearly.  Being a great cook, Rae loved being in her kitchen.  She enjoyed her time cooking for "Woody" and for her children and grandchildren.  Rae loved her husband and they both looked after each other faithfully.  Rae was a giving person who unselfishly shared some of her good cooking with elderly neighbors when her health permitted.  Rae will surely be missed but treasured memories of her will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.    

Funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home, Wallace Chapel with Pastor Chris Jarman officiating.

Burial will follow in Riverview Memorial Park, Watha.

Casketbearers will be Brandon Autry, Kevin Hale, Patrick Hale, David Jackson, Travis Dubois, Ricky Wood and Michael Wood.
