Carolyn Woody Obituary

Carolyn (Bowen) Woody, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother died peacefully

surrounded by family on November 20, 2023 at the age of 78. 

Carolyn was born in Meeker, OK to Fannie and Jesse Bowen. She grew up with 10 siblings on

a farm and learned the value of hard work and the importance of faith and family. She

attended White Rock and Meeker Public Schools and studied at Seminole Junior College. She

devoted her life to her family and enjoyed helping others. She enjoyed volunteering at church

with the youth group and Girls In Action. After retiring from Tinker Air Force Base, she enjoyed

camping in Colorado and spending time doing crafts, bargain hunting, and researching

genealogy. She was talented in quilting, crocheting, sewing, candle making, cooking, cake

decorating, and loved a good game of dominos. 

She was most proud of the family she built with her high school sweetheart, Jerry Woody. They

celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this year. They have five children, ten grandchildren

and seven great grandchildren. 

Carol loved the Lord, her husband and all her babies. She will always be remembered as being

gentle, kind, creative, witty, nurturing, patient, compassionate, loving, sweet, genuine, honest,

and dedicated to any task she started. This is just a glimpse of the amazing women we call


She is preceded in death by her daughter Michele Woody, parents Jesse and Fannie (Wood)

Bowen, her sisters Gladys Leveridge, Rosie Boatner, Ann Miller, Ethel Pinkston, Sue Bowen

and brothers Clyde Bowen and James “Shorty” Bowen. Carol is survived by her husband Jerry

Woody, sons Tony Woody, Jamie Woody, and Tim Woody, daughter Kimberly Felten, ten

grandchildren, seven great grand children, sisters Helen Pinkston and Kat Gomez, and brother

Larry Bowen. 

Her life is a living example of Ephesians 4:32 - And be kind and compassionate to one

another, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
