Mrs. Kodra was born in Dorloo, New York, to the late Jesse and Ruth Chamberlin. A festive and vivacious woman, she always saw the best in people. When she was in ninth grade, she was chosen to be the Captain of the varsity cheerleading squad. Mrs. Kodra loved crafts and decorating for all occasions. She devoted her life to caring for and loving her family. As a homemaker, she took every opportunity to create a friendly and inviting environment in her home. She enjoyed collecting rabbits, coins, and colored glass. Mrs. Kodra loved to sew and crochet, and made many things for her family members through the years, including blankets every time a baby was born and Halloween costumes. She was a member of The Vine Church and was a positive role model for all those around her. She was a wonderful "Grammy" and "G.G" to her greatest treasure, her family, who will miss her dearly. She was preceded in death by her son, Gary Kodra, and 3 sisters.
Left to cherish the memories of Mrs. Kodra are her loving husband of 60 years, Bill Kodra of Perry; her daughter, Brenda Ryberg of Perry; her grandchildren, Miranda Croxton (Benjamin) of St. Mary's, Erika Dean (Malcolm) of Perry, and Nicholas Ryberg of Perry; and 6 great-grandchildren.
