My deepest sympathies to Jody’s family. When my family moved to Otsego when I was in the 8th grade, Jody was one of the first friends I met. She was such a kind, caring, fun person and had such a wonderful laugh.

Keeping all of Jody’s family and friends in my prayers.

I did not have the pleasure of knowing Jodi personally. But,, of all the work she’s put into what she did with such passion; she will be deeply missed as a true part of her community. A light has faded, but a brighter light shines elsewhere ❤

I am so sorry to hear about Jody. I absolutely adored her. When we were very young, she used to come over sometimes and keep my brother and me entertained while Erma and my grandparents would play Yatzee. I remember being so sad when I learned she was getting married because I didn’t think I would ever see her again. I also remember walking down the railroad tracks to see her without the grandparents’ knowledge. Got in a little trouble on that one. Anyway, she was always a joy to be around. Keeping all of the family in my prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of Jody’s passing, she was in my school class and rode my school bus. She was always a happy person with a smile and kind word for everyone she was in contact with. She always stopped to talk to me when I was in town and then she married one of my best friends nephew and had their beautiful and much loved daughter. The community of Otsego will miss your smiling face and kind personality Jody, RIP.
