Aunt Jodie…

Nov 23, 1931 – April 20, 2010. My Great-Aunt Jodie passed away as a result of a fall last week. She had only been a treatment or two away from beating cancer and was suddenly taken away due to a simple slip. She lead an amazing life of many things, including being the first woman in the state of Georgia to earn a firefighter certificate. She also drove tractor trailer trucks, had an Indian motorcycle, and flew in a 1929 bi-wing plane. She and my Uncle Bob lived in Woodbine, Georgia where they have a fire museum and an antique shop. Unfortunately, I was unable to make it to the funeral, but she was honored with full fire service tradition, including crossed ladders, a honor guard, and a fire truck procession. The photo below is from Christmas a couple of years back…
