Jodi E. VanderWyst

March 6, 1958 ~ July 6, 2020 (age 62)


Jodi E. VanderWyst, age 62, passed away on July 6, 2020 due to complications from congestive heart failure and diabetes. She was born in Kaukauna on March 6, 1958, daughter of Edward and Alice VanderWyst.

Jodi grew up in an environment of relatives and friends who enjoyed good natured ribbing. She was a good sport, but you didn’t want to get on her bad side. She always gave as good as she got. Jodi was a Packer backer and an avid Milwaukee Brewers fan. She was a dog lover and always had a couple of pooches in her entourage.

Jodi is survived by her brothers: Jay VanderWyst and Jed VanderWyst; nephews: Christopher (Jessica) Brasch, Jordan (Emily) Ebben, Wyatt Brasch, Rick Weigman, Daniel Weigman and John Weigman; nieces: Tammy (Mike) Carney and Sue (Jeff) Garvey. There are also many members of the younger generation who Jodi loved and enjoyed spending time with.

Jodi was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Rosie who passed away June 8, 2020, and Rosie’s husband Ron Weigman (family favorite).

Much love to the memory of Doris Brasch who really came through for Jodi during a time of need. Thank you Doris for everything you did.
