Gloria Creamier Wood

Gloria Creamier Wood, 74, of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, died Wednesday April 9, 2014. 

She was born Oct. 1, 1939, in Fort Worth to the late Clarence and Edith Creamier. She was the fifth of their six children. She married the late Jackie D. Wood in 1956, and they lived together in Weatherford before retiring and relocating to Daytona Beach, Florida in 1995, and then to New Smyrna Beach. 

Gloria was city secretary of Weatherford from 1970 until she retired in 1995. She was passionate about future growth of Weatherford while maintaining the small town friendly atmosphere. She was proud of the relationships she had over her 27-year career with city leaders, other city employees, and the many everyday citizens of Weatherford that she so proudly served. 

Gloria, in retirement, was never too far from the golf course and was an active member at Sugar Mill Country Club in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. She loved to travel, play golf, and enjoy the company of her many friends and family.

Gloria was preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, Jackie D. Wood, who passed away Sept. 15, 2000.

She is also survived by her pride and joy, her two grandchildren, Nathaniel John Wood and Travis Jack Wood, both attending college at University of Texas at Austin and Texas Tech University in Lubbock. She loved playing golf with her grandsons.
