Met Miles and Pat in 1968 and each of you in subsequent years. Many a day was spent with the family; many a night was shared as they helped us as newly weds and new parents! Celebrations, numerous St. Anne activities, family gatherings, etc. Miles was a staunch friend, a resolute activist, a man who was always there...no questions asked! He and Pat were a delightful couple; perfect complements to one another! You will miss your dad but you will celebrate his life of service and love as you continue in his steps. sheila

Miles Howland Woodward entered into eternal life on February 19, 2014, after having enjoyed a life filled with many blessings. Miles was born in Rutherford, NJ to Norman Howland Woodward and Caroline Mary Kennedy Woodward on July 2, 1931. The Woodward family moved to Wethersfield, CT when he was very young and he grew up there, graduating from Wethersfield High School in 1949. Miles is survived by six children and their spouses: John and JoAnn Woodward, (children Aaron, wife Monique, and Jessica, husband Justin Westmoreland), Michael Woodward, Paul and Susan Woodward (children Christopher and Jennifer, husband Dusty Banks,) Timothy Woodward, (children Matthew, Nicholas, and Rebecca), Dennis and Colleen Woodward, (children Catherine, Robin, and Miles), and Anne and Rod Rodriguez, (children Megan, Michelle, Caroline, and Elizabeth), five great grand daughters (Caelyn, Alexis, Patricia, Miranda and Emma), brothers Bruce (wife Betty) and David Woodward of CT, brothers/sisters-in-law Ike Turner, Charles and Peggy Horne, Rita Horne, and many nieces and nephews in CO, FL, MO, PA, VA, and VT. Miles was preceded in death by his parents and the love of his life, his wife of almost 50 years, Patricia Marie Horne Woodward. After graduating from Penn State, where Miles was a member of Phi Sigma Kappa, in 1953 with a degree in meteorology, he worked in Kinston, NC for three years as a ground school instructor and weather forecaster for USAF primary pilot trainees. Pat and Miles married in December 1954, and after the birth of their first son in December 1955, moved to Houston in March of 1956. Almost immediately they became very involved in their second home, St. Anne’s Catholic Community. Miles served on the first Parish Council, as Eucharistic Minister, Lector, R.C.I.A. sponsor, coordinator of Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors for many years, as a Basilian Lay Associate, and greeter. Miles also volunteered in the CCSC “Back To School“, “Jingle Bell Express”, and “Sunshine Meals” programs, as election judge and clerk; and Little League manager and coach. You are cordially invited to the visitation and wake from six until eight o’clock in the evening on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 and the memorial mass at ten o’clock in the morning on Wednesday, February 26, 2014. Both services will be at St. Anne’s Catholic Community, 2140 Westheimer, Houston, Texas. If so desired, in lieu of flowers, the family would welcome memorial contributions to the Christian Community Service Center, P. O. Box 27924, Houston, TX 77227-7924, the Impact Houston Church of Christ, 1704 Weber, Houston, Texas 77007, Saint Anne Catholic Church, or the charity of your choice.
