Kodie had a big heart and loved her children dearly who she loved to spend time with. She had a passion for fishing and dogs. Kodi's biggest passion was the love she had for turtles, she had a turtle tattoo and always would say "I break for Turtles". She loved turtles so much she would use her sister Twyla's tooth brush to clean her turtles. Kodi will be deeply missed by all who knew her and loved her. She will always be close to our hearts.
