So very sad to hear that Jodi passed. She was a good friend and took beautiful care of my son Donnie when he was little. We have such fond memories of her! Always a laugh, a batch of biscuits or cookies for everyone, and a warm welcome to her home. Heaven has gained an angel.

I would like to express my sincere condolences to Jodi’s children and grandchildren,to her Mom Dorothy,sister Susan ,her brothers and her partner,on the death of this vivacious lady. I first met Jody 50 odd years ago as her Grade Primary teacher and was at once captivated by her big smile and twinkling eyes.We met on different occasions over the years and that smile still appeared.I know she will be missed by many.
