Audrey L. Hood passed away, Saturday June 26, 2021 at the age of 88.
Audrey was born June 1, 1933 in Cairo, Il to James and Stella Ice. She met and married the love of her life, James L Hood on April 29, 1952. They shared 52 years together until his death in 2004. She spent many years working in the retail industry and enjoyed meeting people. She was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Vancleave, as long as her health permitted. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, watching her flowers flourish and the birds commune with nature. She loved her family and especially adored the grands, great grands, and great-great grands. We are comforted in knowing she is reunited with our father and reaping the benefits of a life well lived.
