ROSE WOOD, 88
Rose Wood, 88, of Wolfeboro, passed away on Saturday October 26, 2019 after a lengthy battle with dementia. Rose was born August 20, 1931, the daughter of the late Henry R. and Alma Valley. A beloved lifetime resident of Wolfeboro, Rose is perpetually remembered to her family as “that wonderful woman at the bank”. She was a personal banker for 17 years. Always impeccably dressed, she welcomed everyone with her radiant smile and touched many with her warmth and kindness. Prior to her career in banking, Rose worked at Camp Kehonka for 16 years.
She was preceded in death by the love of her life of 40 years, Bertrande. Their most treasured times together always involved their children. Rose and Bert also enjoyed dancing; often clearing the floor as they were quite captivating to watch.
Nothing was more significant or rewarding to Rose than her family and time spent with them. She is survived by her four children; Connie Eddy of Concord, NH, Richard and Susan Wood of Alton, NH, Stephen Wood and Donna of Wolfeboro, NH, and Sandra Chororos of Sarasota, FL., her nine grandchildren, and nine great grandchildren. They are forever grateful for her strength, her courage and the example she provided to live life fully with grace, integrity, and love. She was predeceased by her sister Mary Fisher, grandson Jason Eddy, and son’s in-law Wayne Eddy and Harry Chororos.
