She died on 20 June 1959 at the age of 86 in Sallisaw, Sequoyah County, Oklahoma. Pete Howard told me that Rosa Howell married Arthur Rainwater, but Census records indicate she was married to Dr. Tom Wood. Birth records match. They lived near Joseph & Julia Howell in the 1900 Census but this Rosa cannot be a daughter of theirs.

HISTORY OF SEQUOYAH COUNTY, 1828-1975 by Sequoyah County Historical Society, 1976.
Goy R. Wood born 2 Aug 1888 and died 24 May 1974 in Sallisaw, Sequoyah Co OK. His wife's name was Jane.

His memorial on FindAGrave lists his name as Coy R. Wood - that is certainly what is on his grave marker, Sallisaw City Cemetery. It is a joint marker with wife Jane - Sept 28, 1887 - Mar 7, 1981. However, his social security death shows Goy Wood.
