Surrounded by the love of her family, Ariel Wood, passed away on Monday, January 28, 2019 at Seaforth Community Hospital. In her 96 years among us, Ariel was a source of love, caring and kindness within the circle of her family and friends. Ariel always enjoyed a rousing game of cards and cheering on her grandchildren at their sporting events. Ariel saw the world as a place to discover, traveling extensively over the years.
Ariel will be lovingly remembered by her children, Rick and Joan Wood of Seaforth, Ken Wood of Dawson Creek B.C., Sylvia Wood and Eugene Mountenay of Parkhill and Brenda Wood of London. Cherishing memories of a much loved grandma are grandchildren Pam and Brian Harper, Bev Wood and Lloyd Crich, Jill and Nick ten Hag, Scott and Amanda Wood, Dean and Carrie Wood, Scott Mountenay and Gabriela Reyes and great grandchildren Shaelynn, James, Stephanie and Dylan, Shawna and Kevin, Brandon and Becka, Benjamin, Jonathan, Spencer, Charlie, Payton, Phoebe, Abigail, Emma and Sofie and great, great grandson Beau. Ariel will be fondly remembered by her siblings and siblings-in-law Lois McMichael, June Robinson, Jim Johnston, Alice and Clarence Ritchie, Jack and Janet Johnston, and Annie Sallows along with many nieces, nephews and friends.
