Jodi Lynn Whited

Jodi Lynn Massingill was born on September 12, 1975 in Monroe, Michigan. She was born from the union of her parents Annie (Wilson) LaBell and Richard Massingill and her step father William LaBell. She received her GED and worked for many years to support her family as a career server. She was blessed with three beautiful children who were her everything.

Jodi was a social butterfly and loved attending family gatherings where she was known to be the life of the party. Her beautiful smile could light up a room. She had an outgoing personality and was passionate about dancing and music. She hated cooking but loved to eat. In recent years, she formed a relationship with God and received her spiritual nourishment by attending church at Frenchtown Missionary Baptist Church.

Above anything, Jodi loved spending time with her family. She will forever be known for her strength, compassion, her warm and giving heart, and her willingness to help others in need. She was loved by all and will be missed by many.
