March 12, 1927 — December 9, 2021

Hendersonville, TN

Jean Wooddy, 94, of Hendersonville, TN, passed away on December 9, 2021.  She is preceded in death by her parents, Kyle M.

Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, she met the man who would become her husband while he was a student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  She graduated from Blue Mountain College in three years, married Robert, and they started their lives together.  She enjoyed her role as a pastor’s wife, serving alongside her husband in several pastorates.  She was a loving wife, mother, and follower of Jesus Christ.  She not only taught people about the love of Jesus Christ through words, but also through living a life that reflected her relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
