Jody Marie Klepper, 75, passed away peacefully Saturday, February 19, 2022 at her home in Danville, Indiana, surrounded by her family.

Jody was born in Monterey, California January 4, 1947.  While attending Fresno State University, she worked at the Fresno County Sheriff's office as a warrant clerk, where she would meet her future husband, Ron.  Ron and Jody were married on March 11, 1970, in Reno, Nevada nearly 52 years ago.  They settled in Ron's hometown of Caruthers, California for the next 41 years before moving to Danville, Indiana to be closer to their sons.  In the 10 years living in Indiana, Jody became the family favorite, enjoyed many friends, watching old movies, doing word search puzzles, and reading.  Kindness and caring were not just words to her, but her lifestyle.

Jody was preceded in death by her parents, Michael and Josephine Trovato, and her grandson, Luke McKown.  She is survived by her husband, Ron; her sons, Robert (wife Nicole) and Clay (wife Jamie); her step-daughter, Casey McKown; and her brothers, Tom (wife Tricia) and Michael (wife Debbie) Trovato.  Jody was the proud grandparent of eight grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and an aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Jody will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a devoted wife, loving mother, and friend.
