Jody was a beautiful person that enjoyed life to its fullest. She was filled with love and laughter and was the life of the party. Jody could light up a room with her smile and always had a funny story to share. Jody enjoyed spending time at her home in Bethany Beach, boating and entertaining family and friends. She was an excellent cook and loved to plan family gatherings and parties for her friends.. She enjoyed traveling and most especially cherished the time she spent with her family. Her greatest pleasure in life was raising her son, Ross. Jody was a loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She will be dearly missed by all.

Left to cherish her memory is her husband, Jim Withrow; her son, Ross Withrow; her parents, Gerald and Ellen (Springer) Torre; her sister, Margie Sharp; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, 'in-laws and members of her extended family.
