Kay Jean Wood

April 20, 1937 — April 1, 2022

Kay (Chatterton) Wood, 84, of Grayling, formerly of Midland and Plymouth, passed away peacefully in her sleep April 1, 2022.

Kay was born April 20, 1937, in Clare to Ronald and Josephine Chatterton.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 62 years Ronald Wood and grandson Jamison Wood.

Kay spent her youth in Midland and graduated from Midland High School in 1955.  She met her future husband, Ron, at a church in Midland and they ultimately married in 1958.  After Ron graduated college they made their home in Plymouth where they raised their family.  Kay was a long time member of the First United Methodist Church and a proud member of the Plymouth Community Chorus.  After Ron retired, they moved to Grayling in 1995 where they built a new home on property owned by the family for over 115 years.

Kay is survived by her son Steve (Jennifer) Wood, daughter Julee Dean, grandson Nicholas Wood, granddaughter Kelsee Dean (Mitchell Thompson) and great-grandson Tatum Thompson, as well as several cousins.  Later, Kay was blessed to have her friend Tom in her life.

A celebration of life for Ron and Kay will be held on a future date.
