Patricia Wood
May 17, 1942 - August 7, 2023

Patricia “Pat” Wood, 81, of Egg Harbor Township, NJ, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, August 7, 2023. Born Patricia Jean Tozer on May 17, 1942, Pat was a lifelong resident of Egg Harbor Township, NJ, where she raised five children and was “Mom-Mom” to many grandbabies and great-grandbabies. She was an EHT school bus driver for many years, enjoyed working in her yard and maintaining beautiful gardens, and loved animals, including her dog, Bearsy, who was loyally by her side when she passed.

She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Robert “Woody” Wood, and her children, JoAnn Hand Rocap (Richard); Robert Hand; Wayne Hand (Genie); Patricia Hand Steele (David); and Rhonda Wood Milawski. She is also survived by two siblings, Bill Tozer (Jean) and Joe “Butch” Tozer, and sister-in-law Donna Tozer Flower. She will be missed by her grandchildren, Joey, Michelle, and Megan Biscieglia; Madison Hand; Skyler Hand; Joseph Gracco; Samantha and Brody Steele; Haley Milawski; her five great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

She is predeceased by her parents, Lewis and Josephine Tozer; siblings Jack, Lewis, and Fay Tozer; and her grandson, George “Buddy” Milawski, who is reunited now with his “Mom-Mom”. She will be missed by us all!
