This site is dedicated to Selma Woodard.

It is with deep regret that we announce the death of our Mother, Sister, Grandmother, Aunt and Friend Selma Woodard. Selma went to be with the Lord on Friday, August 12, 2011 2:55pm at Washington Hospital Center, in Washington D.C.

To My Family
“I am okay with the decisions that I have made in my life. At this time I just want the family to be strong and supportive of each other. We have had many good times together. A baby could die at birth and never have had a life, yet I have lived 75 good years. I am at peace and have no pain. WHEN GOD CALLS ME HOME I AM READY.” (stated by Selma on August 6, 2011)

I will always remember how Selma made me laugh. Selma was a wonderful friend and co-worker. She always helped me when I needed her and she always uplifted me when I was in need of a smile. Rest in peace Selma.

Its so hard to believe that you are not here! Things are not gonna be the same without you not being here for the holidays & vacations. I remember when we used to sit up and wait up for you to walk in the house to get everything started. I also remember you having your own reserved seat in the van! Now everything gon seem so empty without having you around! I just cant believe it! -Your Son-In-Law

I don't think we have met, but I worked with Selma in the finance office at Merrifield Virginia for several years back in the 1990's. I thought as much of Selma as I do my family. She was always there for me and my questions about finance. I will miis her but will remember her always. Take care of your self and God Bless you all.

"We admired your opinion as a woman, the twinkle in your eyes, the movement of your hips as you danced from side to side. The turkey wings in the oven, the spaghetti in the pot, the way we sat at the dining room and talked and laughed alot. Love you!"
