Jody’s great loves in life were her family and her animals...especially her horses!
Her relationship and trust in Jesus as her Savior sustained through the “ups” and “downs” of life. Her greatest accomplishments occurred on the crisis hot line, touching and saving lives as a crisis counselor. She was also heavily involved in implementing the Clothing Giveway within the church. She will be missed immensely. We love you Jody!
