Emily Ann Woods

Mrs. Emily Ann Woods, 82, of Kenton passed away from this life on Thursday, Dec. 19, 2019, at her home with her loving family around her.
A celebration of life service was held 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the chapel of Karnes and Son Funeral Home in Kenton, with Kevin Ray officiating.
She was born April 7, 1937, in Bells, to the late Doyle and Jessie Blackburn White. She was a retired employee of the former Brown Shoe Company with over 40 years of service; along with being a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
She was a faithful member of the Kenton Church of Christ, where she enjoyed serving her church and preparing the Lord’s Supper. She loved her rose bushes, spending time with her family and most importantly, watching her grandchildren at whatever activity they were involved in. She also enjoyed shopping with her sister and enjoying her faithful canine companion of 16 years, “Little Bit,” who followed her every step.
She is survived by two daughters, Jana Ray (Kevin), Darlene Horton (Michael); four grandchildren, Meagan Gonzales (Matthew), Lance Ray (Kathrine), Skyler Bowlin (Camilla) and Lydia Taylor (Robert); five great-grandchildren, Tanner Taylor, Callie Ray, Katey Taylor, McKenzie Gonzales and Luka Bowlin; one sister, Bettye Barton; and canine companion, “Little Bit.”  She was preceded in death by her husband, Dairl Woods; and her parents.
