Clayde Day Hodge, 94, was born February 24, 1925 in Cottle City, TX and passed away September 1, 2019. She was preceded in death by her spouse, Bill Hodge; daughters: Carolyn Ryan and Edwina Reeves; sister, Savannah Derrick and brothers: Leroy, Bill, Elwood and Dan Carpenter.

Day watched the world move forward and went from milking cows and picking cotton, to riding in wagons and very early cars, and on to the newness of TV. She moved further into life to see man walking on the moon and now the wonders of cell phones and computers. The world changed around her, but she kept her faith in the Lord, her trust in common sense, and love of family. She will be forever missed. Services will be held at Denton-Wood Funeral Home, Sept. 28, 2019 at 1:00 PM followed by a meal and gathering at Jean and Tom’s home.
