Amelia Wood

Amelia Wood died Friday, June 7, 2013, of lymphoma. She was 82 years old.

She was born and grew up in New Jersey, moved to Mattituck in 1974 and enjoyed living on the North Fork very much.

As a youth, she participated in many sports and was a proud member of the 1956 U.S. Olympic women’s track and field team, competing in Melbourne, Australia.

She is survived by her loving family: husband, Jon, and children, Suzanne (Keith) Barron, Brendan, Sean and Terence.

The family received friends Sunday, June 9, at DeFriest-Grattan Funeral Home in Mattituck. The Rite of Committal was private.

As she so enjoyed Mattituck-Laurel Library, any donation to it would be appreciated.

This is a paid notice.
