Alice Ceretha Gray, 77, of Macclenny died on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 with family and friends by her side. She enjoyed gardening, sewing, working outdoors, taking trips to Biloxi to gamble, and most of all spending time with her family. After working many years as a correctional officer, she retired to travel and take care of her husband Frank.
Ms. Gray is survived by her son Kenneth Clyde Watts of Gainesville; brothers Fred (Sharon) Wood of Wetumpka, AL and Bobby (Barbara) Wood of Gainesville; son-in-law Bryan Mobley of Macclenny; grandchildren Joel (Beverly) Lauramore of Macclenny, Ceretha Alexander of Atlanta and Denise (Don) Weddle of Sanderson; and great-grandchildren Dalton, Chase and Jordan. She was preceded in death by her husband Franklin Gray, father Joel Marvin Wood, brother JM Wood, and only daughter Deborah Mobley of Macclenny. Alice was many things: a wife, sister and mother, but most importantly she was Nana to everyone she met, to her own grandchildren and to Ricky, Vance, Dena, Rocky, Landon and many others.
The funeral service was held on Saturday, November 17, in the Forbes Funeral Home chapel in Macclenny. Interment followed at Macedonia Cemetery, Macclenny.
