In Memory

Jodi Bowers (Ward) - Class Of 1984

Jodi Ward, 53, ended her battle with cancer on May 5, 2020.

During this crazy time, we were fortunate that she was home and comfortable. She was a graduate of the University of Kentucky and received her RN license in 1988. She spent most of her professional career as a home health nurse. Among her many passions were spending time on the beach, quilting, reading and working puzzles.

She is survived by her husband of 30 years, Kevin; daughter, Allison Schwarz (Justin); son, Drew; parents, John and Judy Bowers; sisters, Jill Livesay (Todd), Jana Vaughn (Robert), and Jennifer Honaker (Bryan); brother, Jeff Bowers (Elizabeth); and 12 wonderful nieces and nephews.

There will be a celebration of life at a later date where all can share their stories and celebrate the good times we all shared with her.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, please consider making a donation to either Norton’s Cancer Institute, where she was treated by a wonderful team, or Hosparus Health, who eased her suffering at the end. Condolences may be made at
