Lula Marie Pettie

SALEM, Va. — She was preceded in death by her Parents, Archie Lee Wood and Ida Jane Brown Wood of Tazewell, and her Husband, Olie B. Pettie of Bluefield, Va.

She leaves behind two sons, James Johnson of Salem, Va, Roger Wood and wife Jeanine of Coral Gables, FL; two grandsons, Nathan Wood of FL,  Max Wood of CA; two sisters, Betty Lowe and husband Carl, Shirley Puckett and husband Hugo; brother, Archie Lee Wood Jr. and wife Mary, all of Tazewell County; many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and nephews; many loving relatives and special friends who loved her.

She will be remembered by her sisters, brother and many close friends as a loving and caring person who was always there to help and lend a passionate ear in times of need. To her sons and grandchildren she could only be described as the sweetest Mother and Nana. Always there with love, support, pride and unwavering strength in life’s up and downs. If it is possible for someone to “love with all their heart” she certainly could do it. She will be missed by the many people whose lives she touched and especially her two sons who consider themselves as the luckiest people on earth to have had her as their mother.

A celebration of her life will be held in Tazewell with family and friends at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family wishes you to consider a contribution to CommUnity Church, 901 Russell Dr Salem, VA 24153

Lotz Funeral Home, 1330 East Main St., Salem, Va., is in charge of arrangements.
