      Jodie was born October 27, 1926, in Roans Prairie to Victor Harold and Cecilia Seigle Borski. She graduated from Anderson High School and then Sam Houston State Teachers College with a business administration degree and a teaching certificate in August 1947. She married Julius (Juke, J.A.)

      Jodie spent many busy years active in a local garden club, St. Joseph Catholic Church Women's Guild (four-time president) and Eucharistic Ministry, several bridge groups, and The Woman's Club. She worked for a while at Texas A&M and then supported her husband in establishing their Skrivanek Home Building, Inc. business.

      She enjoyed sewing, gardening, golfing, water aerobics, entertaining friends and family, and tending to her family, which has left them with many wonderful memories to cherish.

      Jodie is preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, J.A. Skrivanek; parents Victor and Cecilia and step-mother Beatrice Borski; brothers Walter (Margaret, Ardelle) and Tom Borski; sisters Hattie (Charlie) Smith, Ann (Bob) Jenkins, and Bernice Clark; and son-in-law Bob Meyer.

      Jodie is survived by her children, Judy Harber, Debbie Meyer, Susan (Jimmy) Ingram, and Jay (Jennifer) Skrivanek, all of Bryan-College Station; grandchildren, Kelley Meyer, Kathy (Steve) Hawkins, Amy (Andrew) Persyn, Joe Harber, Lauren (Chris) Chapman, Stacey Ingram, Justin Skrivanek, and Jordan Skrivanek; great-grandchildren, Stella and Hayes Sutphin, Elizabeth and Caroline Chapman, and Ethan Hawkins; sister, Wilma (Carnell) Carrell of Anderson; and sister-in-law, Dorothy Borski of Bryan; and many other dear relatives.

      Pallbearers and ushers will be Jay Skrivanek, Jimmy Ingram, Joe Harber, Justin Skrivanek, Steve Hawkins, Andrew Persyn, Chris Chapman, Charles Ray Smith, Luke Rizzo, David Borski, Randy Schultz, Bubba Agnello, John David Skrivanek, Joey Skrivanek, Carnell Carrell, Chris Carrell, and Bill Foster.
