Born on November 18, 1961 in Cortland, NY anyone who knew her was touched by her kindness, selflessness, phenomenal cooking and unwavering love. She was the peacemaker of the family and was always a source of positivity. Jody devoted her life to the Lord and walked with him daily. She belonged to Agape Bible Church and offered many years of service as the treasurer. Jody poured her heart into her work as the Administrative Director at the Alcohol Drug Council of Tompkins County for almost 21 years, all the people she worked with admired her.
She was predeceased by her mother, Judith Miller, whom she can finally be with after over 40 years of being apart. She is survived by her children; Tyler, Tiffany, Tera, Gigi and Corey, and her grandchildren; Carter, Noah, Silas, Eli, Declan, Keatyn, Elliana, and Reese. Her children and grandchildren were her world, motherhood was something she accomplished with no error, she nurtured, nourished, and protected.
To our mother; We love you more than words could ever tell. We are who we are because of you. A piece of our heart will forever be missing. Your love was unconditional and your hug could cure all. There will not be a day that goes by that we will not miss you. We love you with all our hearts, always and forever.
“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
