The family would like to extend a special heartfelt thank you for the care and love given to Jody and her family to Dunes Hospice, Valparaiso Senior Village, and her care giver, Stephanie Robertson. 
Following cremation, a memorial gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Dunes Hospice or the Alzheimer’s Association.


My heart aches for you all. She was such a sweet and gentle soul. She will be missed by many, but celebrating in Heaven with those who have gone before her. Much love to you all and prayers being lifted for your comfort in this time of grieving. -Diane Hayes
