SHARE Obituary: Lucille W. Wood Rodgers

Lucille W. Wood Rodgers 1915 ~ 2007 Our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother was reunited with her husband and other loved ones as she peacefully moved on from this life on Tuesday, April 10, 2007. She was born in Woods Cross, Utah on November 14, 1915 to Cotton Chase Wood and Mary Amelia Walton Wood. She married Eli Brumm Rodgers, Jr. on January 30, 1936 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple and they had 69 wonderful years together before Eli's death on July 4, 2005. Lucille enjoyed doing temple work and many on the other side are benefactors of her service. She and her husband enjoyed golfing. Her swing may not have been mighty but it was one of the straightest and smoothest ever seen. They enjoyed traveling together and one of the highlights of her life was their trip to the Holy Land. She was active in the LDS church and served in many capacities. She loved the teachings of the Gospel and had a deep and abiding faith in the Savior. She was musically talented and for several years played piano in an all women dance band. It was a treat to hear her at the piano, and without music, play many favorite tunes. She was one of the leading experts in Personology in the state of Utah and taught it to many. Her insight into traits and personalities was astonishing and she was able to help many understand how to deal with life's trials. Lucille loved her family. She was always delighted to see her family gathered together enjoying one another. The young grand-children and great-grandchildren were a special joy to her and she was equally proud of each and every one of them. She will truly be missed by all. Lucille is survived by her children, Jeannette (Jay, deceased) Houtz, Sherry (Terry) Bailey, Linda (Don) Hull, and Brent (Christine) Rodgers; 17 grandchildren and 43 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren; her youngest sister, Jetta Briggs; and many nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by her parents, and siblings, Melvin Streeper Wood and Bernice Galbraith. Special thanks to all at The Heritage Place and Bountiful Life Care Center who lovingly assisted Lucille.
