     Austin Dale Woods, age 29, of Clay County, Illinois, passed away Saturday, August 15, 2020.

(Springer) Woods of Clay City; paternal grandparents: Ron & Susie Woods of Xenia; maternal grandparents: Gene & Pam Nichols of Flora and Shirley Minor of Olney; children: Destiny Loretta Woods, Malerie Johnson, and Mason Harker; 1 sister and 4 brothers: Autume Canady of Olney, Sebastian (Emily) Mayberry of Flora, Trenton Weaver of Clay City, James Weaver of Olney, and Clinton Weaver (Karah Mayberry) of Flora; “adopted family”: Kenneth Weaver of Flora and Brittany Fulk (Jacob McGuire) of Flora; as well as aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

     Arrangements are private and in the care of Frank & Bright Funeral Home in Flora.  Memorial donations are suggested to assist the family with expenses and can be sent to the funeral home.  To share a condolence or memory, visit:

My heart is so broken for you Anna and your family.....I don't have anything to say that could take away any pain....My Prayers are deeply with you all and I love you all so much. I am deeply wounded and cannot begin to imagine....Austin was a dear friend as well as family to me and my girls and I remember talking with him about God when He was 13. He was so in question and enjoyed coming by. I hadn't seen him for a year or so last time I saw him was at fairfield walmart and he was smiling because he hadn't seen me in so long and told me to keep in touch. May God be with you all at this time... With all my deepest sympothy and love, always........., Mindy
