Mrs. Wood-Maples was orginally from Moundsville, WV and moved to Johnson City, TN in 2002.

She was passionate about being of service to those that were in need. She dedicated much time to being part of support groups for grieving mothers whom have lost children. In her free time she loved online shopping, playing her online games, cooking, and being with friends and family.

She is proceeded in death by: Chaz Lightner (son), Patricia Wood (mother), Joseph Wood (father), Paula "Polly" Martin (aunt) and Alvie Maples (father-in-law).

Survivors include: Her beloved husband of 18 years, Mike Maples. Her daughter Savannah Lightner, and son Rusty (Sarah) Lightner.

Last but not least, there is nothing like a Grandson that put a smile on her face, joy in her soul, and deep love in her heart. This being her precious, rotten "Pooper", Landan Mathes.
