May 1, 1946 - October 3, 2018
Mr. Jerry Marshall Woodward, 72, of Clarksville, MO, passed away on October 3, 2018. Funeral services will be held at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at the Eolia Baptist Church in Eolia, MO. The Rev. Bob Knight will officiate. Burial will be at the Dover Cemetery near Clarksville, MO. Visitation will be held from 11:00 A.M. until time of service Saturday at the church. He was born on May 1, 1946 in Louisiana, MO to William Woodward and Bonnie Guinn Woodward. He married Debra Lynn Sanderson on September 5, 1969. Their union was blessed with one daughter, Sheri Lynn “Daddy’s Girl”. Sheri wed Timothy Gaunt and now resides in Nixa, MO and they have 2 daughters, Alexa Riley, 13 and Kylie Grace, 9. Jerry was a graduate of Clopton High School in 1964. He served in the National Guard. He was employed by Dundee/Holcim retiring in 2002 after 35 years. Through most of those years, he farmed on the side and raised pigs and cows. Following “retirement”, he was employed as Farm Manager at Chod Farms in Clarksville until his death. Jerry was a member of the Eolia Baptist Church, serving as a Sunday School Teacher, Church Treasurer, and Deacon. Through the 80’s he was president of the Eolia Khoury League, umpired many games, and coached the boys from Sheri’s age group. He also currently served as Chaplain at the Pike County Hospital and President of the Dover Cemetery Board. Jerry enjoyed farming, gardening, hunting and fishing, and nothing better than teasing and agitating friends and family. He was a huge sports fan, particularly with St. Louis Cardinal baseball. He especially loved talking about and playing with his precious granddaughters. He never knew a stranger and was known for his helping hands and sense of humor, which was occasionally overridden by the strong convictions of his faith and his politics. Preceding him in death was his father, William. He is survived by his mother, Bonnie at Maple Grove Lodge in Louisiana, MO, his daughter, Sheri and her family, his wife, Debby, mother in-law, Betty Jean Burns, sister in-law, Connie Sanderson Maher (Rusty), and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He will be missed. Memorials may be made to the Clopton Alumni Association, the Dover Cemetery, or Donor’s Choice. Collier Funeral Home in Louisiana, MO is in charge of arrangements.
