Glo­ria Mae Wood - 93, 1925-2018, of Kentville, passed away Tues­day, De­cem­ber 20, 2018 in the Val­ley Re­gional Hos­pi­tal, Kentville. Born in Lower LaHave, she was a daugh­ter of the late John and Belle (Barry) Nauss. Glo­ria grew up in Lower LaHave. She came to Kentville in 1940 and worked in home care for the next three years. On Jan­uary 29, 1944 she mar­ried the love of her life, “Dick”, and he car­ried her over the thresh­old of 3 Nichols Av­enue where they lived a won­der­ful 64 years to­gether. She con­tin­ued to re­side there un­til her pass­ing. A wo­man of con­sid­er­able artis­tic abil­i­ties and tire­less en­ergy, Glo­ria did ex­cep­tional nee­dle work, knit­ting, quilt­ing, cook­ing and dec­o­rat­ing and loved her life­long vo­ca­tion – home­mak­ing. Her fam­ily is grate­ful to all who con­trib­uted to her well­be­ing as she lived out her life in the home she cre­ated and loved.
