Judith A. Wood, RN, PhD
July 12, 1938 - March 30, 2019

Beloved Sister, Aunt/Second Mother, provider, protector, confidant, and friend. Her main goal in life was to see that those whom she cared for were safe, and above all else happy and felt loved. Survived by Susan C. Simon, Kevin (Kim), Mindy (Scott), Debbi and Sharon Simon. Also, numerous Grand Nephews and Nieces: Danny, Morgan, Tyler, Josh, Nick, Lauren, Alec, Tara, Shane, Grace, Robbie, Troy, and Ellie. Grand, grand Aunt to Novva, Micah, and Athena.

Her nursing journey began after graduating from Mount Sinai Nursing School as an RN. She continued her career as one of the first nurses in open heart surgery at Mount Sinai. From there, realizing the importance of education, she continued on by earning her BA, MA, and ultimately PhD. Over the years she held numerous positions to enhance the nursing community such as:
• President, Greater Cleveland Nurses Association
• Board of Directors, Ohio Nurses Association 1973-1977
• Faculty Member, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, Case Western Reserve University 1973-1982
• Assistant Dean of Student Affairs, University of Cincinnati
• Associate Professor of Nursing, University of Cincinnati
It was her professional ambition to encourage and enhance those in the nursing/medical field and we are certain that there were a great many people impacted by her extraordinary efforts.

Amazingly, as complex as her professional life was, her hobbies and interests were surprisingly simplistic. Anyone knowing Judy knew that going out to eat and trying new places was her love. Some of her other interests were staying politically active, organizing reunions of her nursing classmates, and keeping in touch with them. Her best friend JoAnn Adelsperger held a special place in her heart as was evident in their daily conversations!

And finally, her loving family. They and her close friends were the most important thing to her. Not a moment would pass where she wasn’t making sure that everyone was protected and taking care of themselves. All of this was of paramount importance to her. The love she had and gave with all her heart, always outweighed everything else. She was immensely loved and deeply cherished by her family and will be in their hearts forever.

Visitation will be Thursday, April 4th 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. followed by the memorial service at 12:30 p.m. at McMahon-Coyne-Vitantonio Funeral Home, 38001 Euclid Avenue, Willoughby, Ohio 44094. Burial will follow at Knollwood Cemetery, 1678 Som Center Road, Mayfield Heights, Ohio 44124. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Case Western Reserve University/Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, 10900 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44106.

To the family and friends of Judith Anne Wood, I am very sorry for your loss. During these difficult times God tells us that we can turn to him because he is the God of all comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 which says “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.”

I am so very sorry for the loss or your dear loved one, my deepest sympathies. It is my heartfelt prayer that you be able to find a measure of peace during this difficult time by means of our Heavenly Father, who promises to give us "peace beyond the highest reach of any mind" during times such as these. - Philippians 4:6,7

To the family and friends of Judith Wood. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your loving and caregiving beloved. Just as Judith loved and cared for others, Jehovah God is here to care and comfort you during times of grief. I hope you find comfort at Isaiah 61:1,2 where we find reassurament that Jehovah will “...bind up the broken-hearted...”
