Lynnette (Lyn) Mae Smiley Wood passed away very unexpectedly Friday, December 20, 2019 at the age of 69 in Tooele, Utah. She was born on December 30, 1949 at Marshalltown, Iowa to Thomas Gerald Smiley and Marie VanVlair. She married Charles Dennis Wood on November 7, 1969 in Sparks Nevada. Lyn worked many administrative positions in Reno, Salt Lake City, and Dugway Proving Ground, finally retiring in December 2009 as the Executive Officer for the Commander, U.S. Army Dugway Proving Ground. Always a dedicated employee, she gave her all to every employer she worked for always striving for and achieving excellence in everything she did. She loved the outdoors and especially flyfishing with her husband in Yellowstone National Park. She was always in her glory when she could spend time with her children and grandchildren as well as the Click from Dugway! She was the sweetest, kindest, and most loving person one could ever meet and never found a dog she didn’t totally fall in love with! She is survived by her mother, Marie Smiley, Tooele, husband Dennis Wood, Tooele, sister Bernita Shipp, Des Moines Iowa, children Chanel Marie Wood Carney, Salt Lake City, and Charles Gerald (Melissa) Wood, North Ogden, and six grandchildren: Jarren Kubat, Amber Kubat, Drake Carney, Devyn Wood, Aedan Wood, and Eden Wood.
