I have so many amazing memories of Girl Scout camp with Ms. Jodi. She was such an amazing woman, she lit up every room she was in, and always had something nice to say, we are going to miss her so much at Camp Shawano.
My sincere sympathy to Jodi’s family. She was such a sweet person. We will miss seeing her at our class reunion. She was the reason we were looking forward to this one day💕😔
Jodie will be greatly missed. We use to run around together back in school. Her and Lillian and i would drive around all night. Jodie was fun to be with. Never a boring moment. Condolence to Norman , Tabatha, Randy, and Mike. She was a great woman and will be missed by many.
I have so many fond Girl Scout memories of Jodi! She always had a smile and a robust laugh for everyone she met. Her memory will live on through all the girls and adults lives she impacted. Sending prayers of comfort and peace as you go through this difficult time. “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is Silver and the other is Gold”. Jodi was Gold to so many... 💚💚💚
My deepest sympathy to Norman and Tabatha in their loss of a wonderful wife and loving mother. My prayer is that God will comfort you in hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
