Jody was a caring and loving person, always doing for others. She was a devoted New Orleans Saints, Notre Dame football, and Chicago Cubs fan. She truly enjoyed having a good time with her family and friends. As a child she attended Wagner School of Dance where she eventually became a dance instructor, teaching children the fundamentals of tap and jazz. As a teen she competed with the New Orleans Recreation Department twirling team as a Candy Cane, where they won many accolades. Jody also taught at the New Orleans Recreational Department as a baton instructor where she led the Dixie Twirlers and was well known for twirling the fire batons during the half time shows at the New Orleans Jazz basketball games. She then became a devoted mother to her children, while working at numerous bingo halls around the city and for Mitchell Brothers Amusement where she would spend her summers traveling around Louisiana following the greatest festivals in the South. But ultimately her true passion was spending time with her grandchildren. She was beyond proud of them and supported their many aspirations. MawMaw was always there, cheering on and spoiling each and every one of them. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the service at L.A.
