Funeral services will be held at St. Joseph's Saturday at 11 a.m.
Woodman passed away July 3 after a brief battle with cancer.
She retired as a school librarian in 2007 from Otis Orchards Elementary School in the East Valley School District. She began her career in education as a kindergarten teacher in 1975 at Trent Elementary School in Central Valley and left for a brief time to work at Microsoft for a year.
Woodman was featured by the Spokesman-Review in a story about her retirement from teaching. She said during her career, the students hadn't changed much.
“They still love recess,” she said. “They still love to tell you about their weekend. Kids in general haven't changed. They want love and attention.”
