Patricia Anne Caudle Wood
She was born Oct. 21, 1945,in the Farmington community of Davie County to John Henry and Rose Ella Taylor Caudle. She was a member of Farmington United Methodist Church, and had worked at Ingersoll-Rand before giving up a career in industry to become a full-time mother and homemaker. She attended Farmington School and graduated from Davie High School. Afterwards, she attended business college and obtained a degree in business. As a child, she grew up in a close community with many young people who were fond of getting together at the Caudle home on Saturday nights for an evening of fun and laughter. In addition to her friends, family times were important. She especially looked forward to family vacations to the Outer Banks, where she spent hours combing the beach for sea shells and other natural treasures. She also loved family trips to the mountains.
She was a loving person who spent much of her adult life taking care of others. She was especially close to her siblings Linda and Robert. As youngsters, they played together in the sandbox and roller skated in the basement of the family house in Farmington. Even if they fussed, it wasn’t long before they made up and were off on another adventure.
Shewas a selfless person, putting the needs of others before her own.
In addition to her parents of Farmington, she is survived by: her husband, Taft Master Wood; children, Melissa Wood Palmer (Michael) of Woodleaf, and John Wood (Tammy) of Salisbury; siblings, Linda Caudle Smeltzer (Jim) of Charlotte and Robert Caudle (Kay) of Farmington; and grandchildren, William Cody Wood, Blake Allen Oliphant, Emily Rose Wood, Lily Grace Palmer, and Jillian Nicole Wood.
