Jean Cathadell Wilbanks Woodall went to be with our Lord on Jan. 5, 2018. She passed away in her residence surrounded by her family. She was the widow of Ray E. Woodall, with whom she shared forty-eight years of marriage. She devoted her life to being a wife and mother of one son, Timothy Ray Woodall.
Born in Macedonia, AL, on May 16, 1943, she was the daughter of William “Orbie” Wilbanks and Lula Galloway Wilbanks. As a young woman, Jean graduated from Sylvania High School and worked at Maples Industries. After being married a few years, as soon as she found out that she was expecting a child, she never returned to work, but spent the rest of her life making a loving home for her husband and son. Her favorite days would include crafting something beautiful or watching Tim play sports. As the years went by, she gained a daughter-in-law and three grandchildren. These grandchildren were her pride and joy.
