Jodee Lyn Lofgren was a devoted wife, mother, granddaughter, sister, friend, and follower of Jesus. She departed her loving family while at home and peacefully in her sleep on July 13, 2022.

Jodee was born in Billings, Montana, on March 17, 1970 to Woody and Cathy (Klotz) Woods Jr. She graduated from Lockwood Junior High School in Billings, MT, and Smoky Hill High School after moving to Aurora, Colorado, with her mother. While working at KFC she met the love of her life, John, and they married on March 25, 1989.

She was mother to Zackery, Taylor, and Caden. She raised her children with love and devotion in Colorado Springs with her husband, John.

Jodee’s passions included interior decorating, reading, praying, crafting, baking, and caring for friends, pets, and family. She loved to be silly, watch romantic comedies, dance to Bon Jovi, and always made fast friends with those around her. She spoke with her Grandma Woods by phone every day. She was most proud of raising her children as she always felt that her purpose in life was to be a mom. She often said, “Being a mother is the most rewarding job I’ve had in my life and ever will.” Jodee was a caring, bright light in this world that will be forever missed and can never be replaced.
