Obituary: Barbara P. Wood, 69, H-P retiree


A service for Barbara Paskell Wood of Menlo Park will be held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 24, at Jennings Pavilion in Holbrook-Palmer Park in Atherton. Ms. Wood died at home on July 22 after a brief battle with cancer. She was 69.

Ms. Wood was born and raised in New York City. She graduated from the University of Michigan, where she earned a degree in history. She settled in the Bay Area in 1973, living first in Ladera and later moving to Menlo Park. After raising her children, she worked as a marketing editor for Hewlett-Packard.

Ms. Wood was fond of spending time at Lake Tahoe and will be remembered by those who loved her as a mother, grandmother, golf and tennis enthusiast, and a traveler, say family members.

She is survived by her sons, David Wood of San Mateo and Jason Ward of Menlo Park; four grandchildren; and significant other, Doyle Maness.

Memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
