Jodi Daws

LOUISVILLE — Jodi Daws, 38, of Louisville, died at 10:40 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, at her residence.

Funeral services for Jodi Daws will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Frank & Bright Funeral Home, Flora, with Bill Atwood officiating. Burial will follow in Elmwood Cemetery, Flora.

She was born July 18, 1974, in Flora. She married Trent David Daws and he preceded her in death on March 14, 2012.

Jodi was first and foremost a devoted mother to Marissa, and she appreciated the many simple joys that came with spending time with her family. She loved animals of many sorts, and had helped pets awaiting permanent adoption by providing a foster home environment.

Jodi also spent much of her time with flower gardening, and decorating her home indoors and out. She will be remembered as someone who gave of herself to others by spending her time helping whenever asked.

She helped needy children during the holidays and assisted her sister with cancer fundraising. Jodi's family and friends will always remember that she enjoyed things like going fishing and watching fireworks, and was a fan of Elvis and the band Green Day.

She is survived by her parents, Ron and Barb (McGrew) Prather of Louisville; daughter, Marissa Ann Daws of Louisville; stepdaughter, Ashton Vaughon of Jerseyville; two sisters, Lisa (John) Haycock of Flora and MaDonna Stumpf of Monticello; brother, Wade (Holly) Prather of Clay City; brother-in-law, Justin (Jamie) Daws of Winchester; special in-laws, Stuart and Donna Daws of Winchester; nieces and nephews, Jordan (Kristin) Haycock, Katelyn Haycock, Sheldon, Colton and MaKenna Stumpf, Shandon and Haydon Prather; and many loving aunts and uncles.

She is preceded in death by her husband; maternal grandparents, Ed and Dorothy McGrew and Lyndall Wyatt; and paternal grandparents, Ralph & Cleo Prather.
