Cleda Ruth (Larimore) Wood, 100, of Taylorville passed away peacefully on February 10, 2018 in Taylorville Memorial Hospital. Cleda was only 8 days away from her 101st birthday, as she was born on February 18, 1917 the daughter of Logan and Nellie Larimore.  She lived over a century through the Great Depression and several wars building a life with her husband, Charles, whom she married on Mar 27, 1935 in Taylorville.  They had two children: Leon (died at age 22 in a car accident) and Charlene (husband Ronald Cushman, Belvidere Ill.). Cleda’s husband preceded her in death on Mar 3, 1999. Cleda was blessed to be able to live her senior years in her home with the help of wonderful close friends, relatives and neighbors who checked on her daily. Cleda’s family recognizes all of them for their selfless, loving assistance. Cleda’s mind was sharp until the end, and she was a witty woman with a great sense of humor who was greatly loved and enjoyed by everyone who knew her.
