Reba Nell Hall Woodie, age 85, of McDonough, GA, passed away on Monday, April 3, 2017. She was born in Elmore County, AL, to the late John Howard and Virgie Mae Matthews Hall. Reba was an Air Force wife, who followed her husband for 23 years and raised six children. She and her husband retired from the military life and moved back to Montgomery where she joined the Base Supply team at Maxwell AFB, retiring as Funds Manager. She enjoyed the last five years as a resident of McDonough, GA, near her children. She is preceded in death by her infant son, Richard Dale Woodie, her parents, her husband, Lloyd C. Woodie; and one brother, Forrest W. Hall.
She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, fussing over her sweet dog, “Sophie”, talking politics, caring for her flowers, playing pinochle, watching a good movie, finding new recipes, weekly trips to the beauty shop, and watching Fox and Friends. She gave her heart to Jesus, trusted in Him for love and strength in this life, and life everlasting.
