Josephine “Jody” Brodie Lewis went to be with the Lord on Sunday, February 19, 2023. She is survived by her husband John E. Lewis of Warsaw, Virginia and their two sons, Jonathan, his wife Jenna W. Lewis, and their children, Layla, and Jaxon; and Josh, his wife Jenna H. Lewis and their children, Aiden, Madison, Emmy, and Ellie.
Originally from Martinsville, Virginia, Jody graduated from VCU in Sociology, then married John and they moved to Warsaw. She worked in Social Services for six years, then left the work force for ten years to focus on raising their sons. When she returned to the workforce, she was appointed Magistrate in the Northern Neck area, where she was well loved by all the law enforcement and judiciary personnel.
Jody was a member of the local Red Hat Ladies group, played in the local Bridge Club, and was on the board of the Friends of the Library. She had a reputation of being one of the sweetest and good-hearted people around. Her high school friends, from Martinsville, attest to the fact that there was only one “Jody Brodie”.
A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 25, 2023, at Warsaw Baptist Church with Rev. Leslie Park officiating. Interment will follow the service in the church cemetery.
The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the Warsaw Baptist Church.
