Jody (Sadie) Franzen Obituary
Jody (Sadie) Franzen

November 21, 1962 - January 10, 2019

Jody (Sadie) Franzen passed away during the early morning of January 10th, after a short battle with cancer. Her husband, Benjamin Schreiber, was by her side as he has been for their 23 years of marriage.

Sadie was a force of nature who brought together the misfits around her to create a loving community, one that surrounded her every day through her short illness. It is not really possible to express what Sadie meant to those who loved her, nor is it possible to share all of the organizations and activities she was integral to. She was an organizer for Norwescon, a science fiction convention in Seattle, she was an artist, a craftsperson, and a baker, a thoughtful and insightful correspondent, and a loving friend and wife.

Sadie is survived by her husband Ben, her brother Tom, her cats Bean and Loki, and her longtime housemate Cherie, as well as innumerable additional friends and family. Her funeral will be held on Monday 1/14, at 3:00pm, at the Jewish section of Abbey View Cemetery (3601 Alaska Rd, Brier WA 98036). Shiva will be held at her home starting at 4:00 pm most days, through 1/20. If you would like more details, email Cherie at [email protected]

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the or the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center www.fredhutch.org in her honor. There will also be a memorial/celebration of life, which will be held in about a month.
