I met Jodi at the quilt shop and we hit it off immediately! I always looked forward to her energy and ideas. She was an amazing mom to Megan and grandma to Lydia and Clara. Memories of her love and spirit will stay with you for always.
My sympathies to Jodi’s family! It is been a long battle for her and she always had such a positive attitude through it all!! Will miss her caramels at Xmas time!! She was a grand lady!
Lura Family: Several years ago, Jodi and I were able to visit and get caught up with each other–it was one of those “feel good” visits. I am proud that Jodi was able to use her business training from my classes at NR High School–she was a super student! You will find peace in all those good memories–be sure to share with family and friends. Blessings to each of you as you celebrate Jodi’s earthly life and now her eternal life.

Sorry to hear about Jodi’s passing. It seems like our family spent every summer holiday with the Lura Family. I remember skating at the Barlow Town Hall with the Lura girls most every Friday night. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Megan and family,
So sorry to hear of Jodi”s passing. She was always a joy to talk to at RMCC
Growing up next door to my BFF meant her little sister Jodi (JoJo) was like a little sister to me, too. Our families have had many great times + celebrations over the years, but have weathered many bad rough times too. This is one of the sad ones. Her positive attitude was such a help to all of us going thru the C crap. She was a wonderful friend and help to Mom & Dad during their last years. She was a blessing. You will be missed JoJo! ❤
Praying for Jodi’s Family Blessing to all
Got to know Jodi thru the quilt shop. It was a wonderful store and so was she and all her employees. Sure missed her and the shop when she closed. Rest in peace Jodi and my sincere sympathy to her daughter and sisters and their families.
I met Jodi at RMCC. Jodi’s love for her family was always evident and her face would light up with joy as she talked about each loved one. Her beautiful smile and positive attitude drew others to her. I always enjoyed our visits and felt privileged that she would spend time with me. I hope that beautiful memories will bring you comfort and that those memories will remain strong forever.
Megan and family, Patrice and Denise and families, thinking of you all through this hard time. Jodi’s smile and upbeat attitude made everyone around her happy. Her phrase “Life is good!” was a testament to how she lived her life in these past few years.
Jodi will always have a special place in my heart and I will never forget her smile and cheerful conversations during our massage therapy sessions. How I loved doing this for her! 💕
