The daughter of George Stevenson 2nd and Annette Parke Stevenson of Philadelphia, Mrs. Hood spent 32 years as a top producing real estate salesperson with Emlen Wheeler (now Berkshire Hathaway, Fox & Roach). She was an award winning needlepointer as well as a school teacher.  She graduated from Springside School (now Springside Chestnut Hill Academy) in 1950 and went on to attend Wheelock College and the University of Pennsylvania.  She served on the Board of Directors of Springside and was president of the Alumni Association.

Her artful needlepoint graces multiple churches in the United States including St. Martin-in-the-Fields in Chestnut Hill, All Saints Episcopal Church in Bay Head, NJ and the chapel in Birney, MT. Her particular favorite was The Anglican Church in St. Bartholomew in the French West Indies.  She stitched everything from altar frontals, kneelers and lecterns to the Bishops Chair. Mrs. Hood taught 4th grade at Springside for many years as well as driving the bus.  She met her future husband in the Savoy Company in 1955 where she was an alto in the chorus and Clifford Hood was the lead tenor.  They were married on June 28th, 1958. Mrs. Hood was active in many associations including the Florence Crittendon Association and was on the board of the Jane D. Kent St. Nicholas Day Care Association. She is survived by her husband, Clifford C. R. Hood and her children, Christianna T. Hood of New York City and C. Charles R.
