She was preceded in death by her sister Freda Willey; her brother Charles King; her husband Donald Woodward; her son Samuel Woodward; and her great grandson Ethan Alen Stanley.

Some of her hobbies included going to yard sales, collecting memorabilia like Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse and she loved writing poetry. She enjoyed doing puzzles, both jigsaw and crosswords, however her most prized possession was her large collection of bears.
She had a very long extended family which is where she got many of her nicknames like Dee, Big Momma and G'Ma.

The family would like to thank Rebecca Stanley and Rosa Orozco for the endless hours, the unconditional love, the dedication and the compassion in caring for Grandma, we could not have done it without them. Additional thanks to the caring hospice staff from Gentiva Hospice.

Arrangements under the direction of Mish Funeral Home, Bakersfield, CA.
