Jody Marie Cotter
Jody Marie Cotter, formerly known as Mary Jo Lomax, of St. Louis, Missouri turned 83 and went to be with the Lord the next day, November 20, 2022, after a long battle with congestive heart failure. She resided in DeSoto with her husband, Edward “Ned” Cotter and their little schnauzer, Snickers. She is also survived by three children, Michael (and Denise) Bell, Mark (and Ann) Cotter, and Martienne (and Joseph) Velo, as well as six grandchildren, Corrine (and Zack) Pearson, Christian Cotter, Jacob Collins, Colin Cotter, Meghan Wheeler, and Julianna Cotter. Jody had an infectious laugh and knew no stranger – these things will be remembered most by all who loved her. Her last wish was to donate to St. Jude, so donations in her honor would be greatly appreciated. A memorial will be scheduled and announced at a later date, as she has chosen to be cremated.
