Jodine (Jodi) Beth Earle
Canandaigua: Jodine Beth Earle (Winkler) died Wednesday, September 12, 2018.
She was 50 years young.
Jodi was born in Canandaigua, NY to Gale (King) and William Winkler, Jr. and grew up in Farmington and Victor, NY. She was predeceased by her grandparents Grace and Ernest King, Lucille and William Winkler Sr., and her step father John Tracy. She leaves behind the love of her life Brian Jensen, her two children Amanda and Corey Earle, her mother Gale, her father Bill, her four brothers Brian, Darrell, Jonathan and Michael Winkler, and countless other friends and family, near and far.
Jodi’s life was one illuminated by beauty, driven by hard work, and filled with an unconditional love for others.
If Jodi saw an opportunity to help someone or simply to brighten their day, she made it happen. It didn’t matter where she was or who you were to her — a friend, a stranger, or even a stray turtle trying to cross the road — Jodi put your needs before her own. She was wholly selfless, there to cheer for your shining moments and to hold you up in your darkest hours.
Moreover, Jodi’s work ethic and drive were unparalleled and unstoppable. Personal and professional challenges were just no match for her curiosity, creativity, and will. She would not rest until she found a way to climb over any mountain that she faced, even literal ones. Furthermore, she reveled in sharing these heights and achievements with all those around her. If she made it to the top, you were right there beside her. Again, Jodi made things happen, not only for you but with you.
Most simply, Jodi had a beauty unlike any other. You could see it directly in her easy smile, always radiant, but there was a deeper beauty within. This was the beauty that warmed any room she was in and likewise brightened, and always will brighten, the lives of those close to her. It was impossible to be in her life and remain unchanged by it and without question, Jodi will long continue to make beautiful things happen in all our lives for years to come.
Jodi chose not to have a service or traditional memorial. She wanted instead for us to celebrate the life we shared with her and in turn, to share with each other the memories that she so deeply loved creating and sharing with us. Although we now take time to mourn this unbelievable loss and try to begin to heal, the family looks forward to having this celebration of her life. Once plans are confirmed, we will notify all friends and family, but as of right now we believe that this celebration of her life will be on Jodi’s birthday 11/11/2018.
