Jody was a very strong, charismatic woman who loved reading the bible and sharing the salvation and good news of Jesus. She married her husband, Don, on May 13, 1989 and he was the love of her life. Jody loved her family very much. She enjoyed reading her bible and she was just the most positive person you could ever know. Jody worked for UPS for 34 years, delivering packages. Jody fought a lengthy battle with Parkinsons, but she had an inner strength that was incredible. It was her wish to be received in Heaven by her Lord and savior Jesus Christ, with him saying, “Well done my good and faithful servant.” She will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her. 

Jody is preceded in death by her parents, Edd and Mattie Harmon. Left to cherish her memory are her husband, Don Kennedy; sons, Colt Kennedy and Brandon Gongre; sister, Sue Campbell and husband, Dody; grandsons, Jacob Gongre, Tatum James Gongre and Bowden Andrew Gongre and many family members and friends.
