She was our beloved mother, wife and most important, Granny.
Jody was born and raised in Aztec. She touched the lives of all who knew her.
She was the mother of three and Jo-mama to many.
Jody loved and lived for her husband of 39 years. She loved nothing more than being with her children and grandbabies.
Summer was her favorite season because it was warm and she could be at the lake on her houseboat or out ""troopin"" watching the sunrise.
Jody loved her music and dancing. To know her was to love her.
She will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Bo Griffin and her sister, Barbara (Griffin) Wright.
Jody is survived by her husband, Donnie Keenom; son, Bud (Samantha) Keenom; daughters, Sonya Keenom and Angela (Steven) Chapman; sisters, Kay Likes, Sue Coberly, Beckie McClain and Tina Giles and four grandchildren, Logan, Deegan and Olivia Keenom and Hallie Chapman.
A memorial service will be 10 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18, at Bethel Baptist Church, 201 Heiland Road in Aztec, with Bob Schlauger officiating.
