I was so sorry to hear about Jodi. My daughter Ashley had Jodi her first year teaching at Hiawatha. That same year my sister died of cancer and Ashley was having a very difficult time. But Jodi was right there with her loving and caring heart, helping Ashley deal with it all. Jodi has always had a special place in our hearts, even though she didn't know how much she helped my family. My daughter still talks about her and how she was one of her favorite teachers. Your family will be in our thoughts in prayers during this difficult time. Just wanted to share how much she helped and cared for others. GOD BLESS you all.The Parsons' Family

Mrs. Francis was my fifth grade teacher, and although I am now a college freshman, I've never forgotten her. Her passing comes as a shock to me, and my thoughts and prayers go out to her family. She was a loving, caring, understanding woman, and I'll always remember everything I learned from her.

I so remember Jodi-belle, as we called her when she worked at my store, The Apple Tree. She was a queen at everything she did, and was so helpful as the business declined to family issues. I will see you on the other side, Jodi! Marilyn
