Photograph published and featured on the October 2007 Alumni Cover Story

She continued her love of mathematics at Marcellus High School where she loved teaching for the past 10 years. At Marcellus, Jody served as a class advisor, mathematics league advisor, helped supervise school activities, and assisted with coaching. She was awarded the 'Mustang' award at Marcellus High School for excellence in teaching. Jody was also employed by Onondaga Community College as a math teacher for SAT exam students. Though Jody's life with us was short, she had a gift of reaching out to others and will be missed by all who knew her. Jody loved scrapbooking, trips to their camp at Canadarago Lake and playing with her chocolate lab 'Reno'. Just as in her professional life, Jody considered the numerous and varied relationships in her personal life to be her greatest joy, her foremost responsibility and her most rewarding privilege. She had many loved friends and was an avid fan of the Syracuse University Orange, Dallas Cowboys, and New York Yankees. In her spare time she enjoyed gardening, cooking and number puzzles.

Survivors include her beloved family; her husband: Sean Karla of Syracuse; her parents: Al and Janet Tanner of Ilion; two sisters: Kerri Tanner of Saratoga Springs and Nicole (Tanner) Gadziala and husband Rudy of Selkirk; a special aunt: Lois Busher Arndt of Mohawk; a special niece: Marisol Annette Gadziala; father in law and mother in law: Robert and Norma Karla of Ilion; a sister in law: Jodi and Mark Arsenault of Newport; nephews: Tyler and Kyle Arsenault; and many loved cousins including: Kevin and David Arndt, Marc, Michael and Tara Tanner. She was preceded in death by her grandparents: Henry and Harriet Busher and Ernest and Joan Tanner. The family will receive relatives and friends at the Enea Family Funeral Home, 4309 Acme Rd., between Ilion and Frankfort, 894-8000 on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 from 4-8 p.m. The funeral will commence at 11 am on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 from the Enea Family Funeral Home, Ilion/Frankfort with the Rev. Brian Engel, pastor of Mohawk Reformed Church officiating. Procession will follow to Mohawk Cemetery where she will be laid to rest. Kindly consider memorial offerings to the Cystic Fibrosis Association; envelopes may be obtained at the Enea Family Funeral Home. The family extends a heartfelt thank you to Jody's family members and friends, for their supportive, caring, and thoughtful acts of sympathy during this difficult time; also to the Community General Hospital for their compassion.

I am still working with Bank of America, just recently accepted a position as a Personal Banker in Wilton, CT. Wilton is a nice little town, very expensive to live in though..lol. I live in Danbury, which is less than 20 miles away, but due to the traffic in CT it takes around 45 minutes to get there. Haven't had the opprotunity as of yet to go out much there, although I did just recently land a part at a local Opera House in Thomaston, CT for the musical Oliver. Hope everyone is doing well."

"Thinkin' bout some old times inspired me to check this site and see what was happening... It's interesting to see the paths that life follows for each individual knowing where we all come from and observing who has done what for themselves. For some, the reality seems all too typical and quite expected... for others completely surreal. As for me, you may feel free to come to your own conclusions..."

"Knowing well that there was little to offer me in the dreaded "valley" & feeling suffocated by the monotanous activities and lack of inspirational stimuli, 2 years ago my ambitions have lead me to create a change of atmosphere and move to Chicago. Things have been well as I'm finally making my break into the art world and creating a blissful existance as a professional artist. Currently I have several pieces on exhibit in galleries here in Chicago, as well as Boston & Maine. I've also been doing quite a bit of freelance work for people and musicians on the east coast;still finding time to volunteer as a counselor for people with developmental disabilities & interpreting sign language for deaf children.

"I'm hoping that some old friends who don't know how to contact me see this and get a bug up their ass to drop me a line. I'd be awesome to hear from you!!!! especially if you're gonna be in the Chicago area, I've got a whole house to myself & love visitors!!! Live, Love, & Breathe deeply... Peace"

"Hi! People have been talking about the Ilion Website, so I thought I'd check it out. In May I graduated from Geneseo State. I spent the summer at the camp that I've worked at for the past 3 years and now, I'm living in Owego, NY. It's very "quaint", more so than Ilion. I'm workingas a Speech Therapist at an elementary school. I work with children in K-5 and am having a great time. This episode will only last until January 31, 2000, however, when I head to the Dominican Republic as a Special Education Provider with the Peace Corps. I'm not exactly sure what I'm getting myself into, so if you know anything about it, please LET ME KNOW!! I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday and the year 2000 brings more of the successes that I'm reading about!" - Alyson
