Donna's Story

BRADLEY - Donna C. Wood, 86, went to be with the Lord on April 1, 2016. She was born December 28, 1929 in Houlton, the daughter of Charles and Arla (Price) Carpenter. She was a 1948 graduate of Houlton High School.

Donna was a loving wife and homemaker and enjoyed being active for the church. She comforted those in need. It was never a surprise to see a stranger in her home having a meal. Donna was an avid reader and always had a newspaper within her reach.

In addition to her parents, Donna was predeceased by sisters Betty Dunlop and Lois Hannigan; sisters-in- law Velma Yatroussis, Clara Hiltz, Mary Beaulieu; brothers-in- law Arnie Dunlop, Larry Wasson, Gib Hanson; her husband George M. Wood; and her first husband, Fred G. Hanson. She is survived by five children, Rick Hanson and wife Janet, Dale Hanson and wife Noreen, Tom Hanson and wife Priscilla, Penny Figuried and husband Donat, Randy Hanson; two brothers, Robert Carpenter, and Carl Carpenter and wife Margaret; sister Charla Portus; sisters-in-law Phyllis Knapp, June Wasson, Joyce Buck and Linda Spaight; brother- in- law Ben Hanson; 20 grandchildren; 28 great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

A special thanks goes to the staff at Westgate Manor for the loving care they gave Donna. The family thanks Marie Burpee, a dear friend, and the ladies of Glad Tidings Church for their visits and cards.

A funeral service will be held 2pm, Tuesday, April 5, 2016 at the Brewer Chapel of Brookings-Smith, 55 So. Main St., Brewer with Rev. Ron Morris, pastor of Glad Tidings Church of Bangor, officiating. Friends and relatives are welcome to call from 1 p.m. until start of the service. Interment will be later in the spring at Evergreen Cemetery, Bradley. Those who wish to remember Donna in a special way may make gifts in her memory to the Westgate Healthcare Activity Fund, 750 Union St., Bangor, ME, 04401.
