Ann Bush Woods, age 74, went to be with the Lord on February 13, 2021. She was surrounded by the love and support of her family at home in Mechanicsville, VA. Surviving are one son, Theodore Welker Woods, Jr., and wife Tammy of Roanoke; two daughters, Carrie Ann Noonan and husband Jim of Glen Allen and Holly Gene Waltemyer and husband Allan of Asheville, NC; two sisters-in-law Billie Lee Jarrett and Sally Woods Burton and husband Brown of Roanoke; four grandchildren Mason Allan and Landon Reed Waltemyer and twins, Sylvia Holly and James Welker Noonan; two step-granddaughters Sarah Shepherd and husband Cole and Renee Bartoo and husband Justin; three step great-grandchildren Marcus, Miles, and Carter.
Ann was the daughter of the late Bush-Flora Shoe Company owner Arthur Lester Bush, Sr. Ann was also preceded in death by her husband, Theodore Welker Woods, Sr.; her mother, Ann Moore Bush; and brothers Charles Eugene Bush and Arthur Lester Bush, Jr.

Ann was married in 1966 at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church, Roanoke and has been a member of St. Bridget Catholic Church for the past 25 years.

Many will remember Ann as she never met a stranger. She dedicated her life to making others feel welcome. She often shared stories that would radiate her faith and strong family values.
Ann was above all a loving angel to all her grandchildren. She was also a grandmother to countless kids in her Mechanicsville neighborhood. She is well known for hosting popsicle and watermelon parties and delivering giant gingerbread cookies during the holidays.

A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in Roanoke on Friday, March 5th, at noon. Or attend online at www.standrewsva.org/livestream-masses-leaflets. The graveside service will be private. You are invited to share condolences or memories at www.oakeys.com.

The family suggests memorials be made to American Cancer Society, St. Bridget Catholic Church of Richmond, and St. Andrew’s Catholic Church of Roanoke. Arrangements are by Oakey’s Roanoke Chapel (540-982-2100).

To the Woods family (Tad, Carrie and Holly):
We have never met, but we feel like we know you! My name is Dominick Maio, I was the Chief Information Officer for the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA) for over 20 years. Part of my job was to attend and participate in the annual conferences held by the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA). My wife Evelyn accompanied me at these conferences. We looked forward to meeting Ted and Ann at these annual meetings. It was such a great pleasure to know them. They were both wonderful people and we became good friends! We talked about our families a lot and this is why we feel we know you. They always spoke of you lovingly and with pride! Even after retiring, we kept in touch through correspondence during the holidays. We looked forward to receiving the family letters that your Mom and Dad sent out every year. We are going to miss that very much!

We are so sorry to hear that Ann has passed away. We send you our deepest heartfelt condolences.


Dominick and Evelyn Maio

Our condolences to Ann's children and grandchildren. Ann and I grew up together and stayed in touch through the years. We got together occasionally with our spouses and other close friends for what we referred to as "mini reunions." It was fun to recall stories from our high school days and as we got older we could tell the same stories each year and still laugh. Ann was especially helpful tracking down fellow classmates on our missing list for our 50th reunion. She was quite the detective and wouldn't give up until she had contacted all family members and friends. Her hard work dwindled our "missing classmates" list to only 12. Quite the achievement! During her illness she remained positive and couldn't stop talking about her children and grandchildren. She will be greatly missed.
