Jodi Marie Holter was born on May 23, 1964 to Duane and Helen (Kunst) Holter in Fort Lewis, WA. She 

Jodi grew up on the family farm in the Mora area. She went to Mora schools and graduated from high school at Grasston Christian Academy in 1982. She was a kind, caring and beautiful person who loved God, animals and all people deeply, and she lived her life to the fullest. She loved the outdoors and working with her hands. She was an adventurous country girl through and through, and her family laughed that she would never grow up. She worked various jobs doing construction, driving heavy equipment and as a carpenter, most recently with the Carpenters Local Union 129 in WA, and as co-owner of ABA Construction with her partners Duane Dopp and Lucas Leach.

Jodi enjoyed fishing, woodworking, flowers and rocks, but she mostly loved spending time with her grandchildren and family. Jodi was a free spirit who spread her light and the love of Jesus wherever she went. She would give her last dollar away to help someone in need and had no need for material possessions. She went on multiple mission trips to India, Belize and Mexico, but her work didn’t stop there, as she continually loved and served people without hesitation.

Jodi was preceded in death by her grandparents, Selmer and Lois Holter of Foley and her beloved father Duane Holter in 2014.

Jodi leaves behind her mother Helen of Mora; children, Daniel (Sheila) Dopp of Bemidji, Ashley (Lucas) Leach of Princeton and Levi (Sara) Dopp of Braham; 6 grandchildren, Joshua 20, Dallas 12, Rachel and Ryan 10, Elijah 6 and Allison 5; brothers, Rodney Cox of Aberdeen, WA, Doug (Lynea) Holter of Mora, Daryl (Tracy) Holter of Finlayson; and sister Beth (Tim) Cody of Concord CA. She also leaves a large extended family and countless other friends around the world.

There are some who bring a light to the world so great that even after they have gone, the light remains.

  3. Jodi will always be remembered as a wonderful ❤️ woman who was full of love and joy. She will be dearly ❤️ missed

  4. Jodi & I met when I was 16 and she was 14 almost 44 years ago. We fell in love and that love never waned thru the years. Jodi was an inspiration for not only me but everyone she touched with her amazing smile and one of a kind laugh. We always seemed to to find one another and always picked up our conversations like we had just talked the day before. Jodi has meant so much to me and when I was in the hospital with a heart condition, the phone rang, and it was her voice on the other end sending words of encouragement and love. I still do not know how she found out where I was and even the room # and phone#, but that was Jodi. When my son passed unexpectedly, She was among the first to call and offer prayers of healing. Her spirit in this world was huge and the world is in need of more Jodi’s in it. She will forever be the love of my life and I will miss our conversations immensely. Until we see each other on the your side of heaven. LYATM
