Dear Shane and family, We are heartbroken with you, so hard to say goodbye when we want more time with each other. What a blessing Jody was to all who knew her. We always enjoyed her singing and friendly spirit. The one thing that brings us Joy is to know she is with our Savior face to face. We are in prayer for all of you.

Oh Shane, my heart has been aching ever since I heard about Jody’s passing. I didn’t realize she had been sick, so this was a great shock and sorrow. I will always remember Jody as a most kind, caring, and devoted servant. She was a good friend to me during your time at Ripley (and beyond) and will be greatly missed. Our hearts and prayers are with you now and will continue long into the future as you struggle to move forward without your beloved other half. Sending love, hugs, and prayers for you and the kids. ♥️♥️♥️

I was saddened by the news of Jody’s passing. I was unaware of her illness. I worked with Jody preparing the communion prior to the pandemic. She will be missed. My prayers go out to the family.

Jody was dear to us. We love and appreciated her friendship. She was a joy to work with in the kitchen at church, have out to dinner, at parties, and a huge contributor to our small group. She was so funny, and happy, and always had insightful thoughts about life that helped us feel connected to one another by her contagious uplifting spirit. Going through photos has brought back many memories, such as when she and the girls threw me a baby shower, and when we threw them together for others. She was always game for getting together, helping out or just hanging out, and being a good friend. She checked in. She took care of our babies. In a lot of ways, she was more like family than just a friend. Our condolences to Shane, Charis and Caden, and all the loved ones she proceeded.
