Jodi was a devoted wife and a beloved Mother. She was celebrating her birthday with her family at her favorite place, her cabin up north in Michigan, which she called her “heaven.” Jodi was a warm, kind and compassionate person who always put her family first, including countless dogs and cats she loved on over the years. She was a beautiful and fun-loving woman with a great laugh, who brought the family together every holiday with her delicious and traditional dinners prepared with love, and who understood that life was fleeting and that every moment with those you love is precious. She was a wife, a mom, an animal lover and advocate, an aunt, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a shoulder to cry on, a warm hug on a difficult day; Jodi was so many things to so many people, and she is already missed terribly by all who knew her. May her sweet soul finally find rest. May she now run with her pack of wolves in the great landscape of heaven.
