Peacefully in her sleep at the St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital in London, Ontario on Wednesday, November 12, 2014, in her 55th year. Beloved wife of Bruce, beloved sister of Lance, beloved sister-in-law of Nona, and beloved aunt of Jaxon, Jagger and Jace. Predeceased by her mother Eleanor and her father Norm. Jody was a marvelous person who always put Bruce’s needs first, whether it was buying him clothes that looked good, baking him French pepper crackling bread at Christmas, or just holding his hand. I am so blessed to be loved by you, Jodiette. You’re my girl. Jody was an occupational therapist at Parkwood Hospital in London, and absolutely loved her spinal cord patients. Earlier she doled out similar blessings to the veterans at Parkwood. Jody worked so hard for them. Jody loved gardening and created marvelous flower beds at our home in Union. She asked that her ashes be sprinkled on her rose bushes, and I will do that. Countless human beings loved my wife. She especially loved Neal Weisenberg, Sarah Webb, Connie Cocca, Kerri D’Ambrosio, Arlene Breukelman, Linda Melo, Jan Harper, Deb Crunican, Alba Casalino, Chris Fraser, Tom Jolliffe, Julia Crawford, Lynne Foell, Glen Steen, Carole Dash, Gary Lee-Tai-Fuy, Steve Orenczuk, Rachel Chandler, Angela Woolner, Manny, Janet Tozer, Julie Gagliardi, Rollie Pilon, Holly Assaf, Linda and Tony Caruana, Carol and Mike Rooke, Julia Kolkman, Julie Clarke, Eva Main, Cam Clark, Ann Higgins, Lyrinda Sheppard, Ray (uncle) and Joy Doram, Joan Arelis (aunt), Eleanor Doram (aunt), Holly Doram (cousin), Veronica Rowe (cousin), KC Larsen (cousin) and Rhonda Doram (cousin). Oh, I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone. Jody told me that she would like a very small funeral, just family and her close friends. There will be a luncheon for these folks on Saturday, November 22, 2014. A Celebration of Jody’s Life will be held on a Saturday in January, with all of you invited, to share your memories of my lovely wife. The date and location of this celebration will be announced in the "In Memoriam" section of the London and St. Thomas papers on Saturday, December 6, 2014. I love you dearly, Jodiette. May you be at peace, my dear.
