Ms. Mary Emma Woods

 

"Ma'am"  "Mae"

Mary Emma was born to her parents, the Late Robert Lee & Flora Mae Bufford-Woods, on December 7, 1942 in Camden, Alabama. She confessed Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age and joined the St. Emmanuel #1 Missionary Baptist Church while under the leadership of Pastor Smith where she remained a faithful member until her transition.

 

Mary Emma graduated high school at Camden Academy and labored faithfully as a homemaker for several families in Wilcox County until she decided to devote all her time to her own family. Mary Emma  transitioned to her Heavenly mansion on Wednesday, July 12, 2017  at  Sacred Heart Hospital in  Pensacola, Florida.

 

Mary Emma is honored today as an humble, praying woman who was truly devoted to her family and friends. She is remembered as mother who loved to cook and feed her family and others. Mary Emma always extended a smile and a helping hand to all who knew her. Her family was her first love, and for those that really knew her, also knew that her second love was professional wrestling. She has been a committed fan her entire life and introduced the sport to her family.

 

She will be forever cherished by her seven children: Willie Pearl Woods, Teresa Woods, Patricia (Vondell) McGraw, Michael Woods, Michelle (James) Dale, Cleorotis (Melinda) Woods, and Travoris (Tina) Woods; her thirteen grandchildren: Sherika, Dalvin, Shakamria, Daevon, Earlkel, Amber, Kendell, Asia, Kalisscia, Keondra, Karston, Anthony, and Pharell; a loving and devoted sister, Sarah  Ann Woods-Moton; a host of special nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends; four special neighbors who believe in looking out for one another: Pearline Hill, Wifford Cannon, Ethel Mendenhall, and Leola Packer and many other loved relatives, her church family and friends.
