     Charlene Kay Wood was born November 16, 1936 in Williams, Iowa to Charles Francis and Zella Bess [Smith] Fleming. She attended the Williams Community Schools and country schools before graduating from the Iowa Falls Community School District in 1955. After attending the Ellsworth Community College for a short time she was united in marriage to Kenneth Ross Wood on November 20, 1955. To this union four children were born: Paul, Michael, Julie, and John. While most of her life she was a homemaker, she enjoyed farming with her husband. Charlene was a 4-H leader and honorary member of 4-H, along with being the secretary and manager of the Hardin County Fair for many years. She was a member of the Ellis United Methodist Church for 61 years, and attended the Owasa Methodist Church. She helped start the Church Women United Thrift Store in its beginning stages. Some of Charlenes pastimes were reading, flowers, and quilting, however those couldn’t compete with her love of being a grandmother and great-grandmother.
