Jodie was a true Matriarch of the family. She was the neutral middle ground that anyone could talk to. No matter what time of day or night she would always be willing to help or listen. Jodie’s true passion in life was cosmetology. She loved making everyone’s day with helping them look fantastic. She was truly amazing, and she will be missed greatly!
