Everett E. Woody, age 78, lost his courageous battle with cancer and entered his eternal heavenly home on October 30, 2014 at the Cedar County Memorial Hospital.
Everett was the youngest son of Earl and Hazel (Green) Woody, born November 21, 1935 in El Dorado Springs MO.
He attended school in El Dorado Springs and graduated with the class of 1953. Woody was a long time member of the First Baptist Church
Woody was a very private individual, but fun loving as well. Whenever Woody was around you always had a good time.
Everett and Ruth Taylor were married on June 27, 1954 and had just celebrated sixty years of marriage. This union was blessed with two wonderful children, Janet “Earlene” and Randal “Nick.”
Woody began his life-long career as an automobile dealer at age 16. His business was built on the foundation of honesty, integrity, and a work ethic second to none. He semi-retired several years ago but continued to help Nick with Woody Motors as long as his health permitted.
A few years ago Woody Motors was honored by the local Chamber of Commerce as having been in business for over 50 years. Woody Motors has also been honored by numerous automobile auctions as a member of their annual Million Dollar Club, receiving two such awards in one year.
He is survived by his loving wife, Ruth of the home; his daughter Janet “Earlene” Hull and her husband Jim of Frisco, TX; his son Randal “Nick” and his wife Robin of rural Stockton MO. Also surviving are two grandchildren, Taylor Nicole Woody and Wyatt Everett Woody; one step-grandson, Stephen Hull, and one step-great granddaughter, Bella Kate Hull. Also surviving are his brother, Denzil and his wife Vera of Atlanta, GA, sister-in-law, Donna Woody, nieces and nephews, and a world of friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Earl and Hazel Woody, two brothers, Ralph and Floyd; his in-laws L. D. and Ethel Taylor and a sister-in-law Lee Moore.
