Both of her parents preceded her in death. She did not marry, but spent the last 15 years with her long term partner, Greg Banks of Dekalb.

In her free time, Jody loved to paint (when she was younger) and put puzzles together. She worked as a welder for several years. Jody was full of fun, life and energy. She was always telling jokes. She burned the candle at both ends with no regrets. She wasn’t perfect. She made mistakes, but she had a big heart and meant well. She will always be remembered and loved by her family and friends.
