Jody Lynn (Osborne) Ivy, 65 of Allyn Washington, passed away the morning of June 15th, 2021. She left this earth with her loving husband and daughter Lauren by her side. Jody was born September 10th, 1955, to Jan and Alice Osborne (Anderson) and grew up in Yarrow Point Washington with her two sisters and brother. She went to Holy Names Academy and from there to The Burnley School of Art now known as the Seattle Art institute where she graduated in 1976. She worked at Boeing and then Microsoft as a Graphic Designer. Jody had a natural talent in the Arts. This undeniable gift overflowed into her everyday life. She became a detailed stained-glass artist, a fine arts painter, and an enthusiastic gardener creating a sanctuary wherever she went. Her imaginative and caring spirit shined through with her love of birds especially the great snowy owl and she continuously cared and supported her local wildlife. Growing with her garden Jody developed a great deal of knowledge of these things and she continuously taught and shared this with the world leaving a profound footprint of life among her family and friends. Her life was rich and full of happiness. She had many friends and was married to her loving husband for 42 amazing years. They shared many beautiful moments in their life together and had two wonderful daughters.  Jody is survived by her husband Steven Ivy and daughters Christine Horton (Ivy) and Lauren Ivy. Her grandchildren Shay Moshe, Logan Horton and Miles Horton and siblings Jeff Osborne, Jenny Osborne, and Jill (Osborne) McGuinness.

The universe is quieter now, you sung a song a whistling in the trees, soaring through overgrown daises… I’ll look for you. I’ve come undone and shall sit in high grass hoping to hear your song until the snow falls and the roses sleep. Forever a sparrow in my heart you will be. C.H.
