Jodi Rene’ Doll, daughter of Bob and Sharon Brashears, was born on May 10, 1968 in Marysville, Ohio and died tragically and unexpectedly on Tuesday, February 22, 2022. To those of us who knew and loved her, she was perfect. She was the epitome of the Golden Rule, an absolute ray of sunshine and was immensely treasured by all who were blessed to know her. Jodi was the vibrant Aunt who supported and spoiled her nephews and nieces, but her greatest love and the absolute pride of her life was her daughter, Megan, and her new granddaughter, Sarah. Jodi was in a loving relationship with David Karr for the last 16 years and they were engaged on November 28, 2020. The family is mourning her loss and the void left by her absence is almost unbearable.
Jodi graduated from Marysville High School in 1986. She attended the University of Cincinnati, University of Kentucky and graduated summa cum laude from Franklin University with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing.
Jodi started as an Executive Assistant while attending college in Cincinnati and cultivated that into a career that spanned in excess of 34 years. She was a bit of a workaholic and was a reliable and devoted employee of ASI in Dublin for the last 22 years.
She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Don and Virginia Davis and her paternal grandparents, Charles and Ruby Brashears, her aunt, Wanda M. Ricketts and her uncle, Bill C. Brashears. She was also preceded in death by her cousins, Kristin M. Butcher and Steven M. Davis.
She is survived by her parents, Bob and Sharon Brashears of Marysville, her daughter, Megan (Andrew) Kinsel of Yankton, S.D., her granddaughter, Sarah, her fiance’, David Karr of Marysville, and his children, Jackie and Zach Karr, her siblings, Shelley (Josh) Smitherman of Marysville, Ryan (Shawna) Brashears of Raymond and nephews and nieces, Kenny (Rachel) Parrish, Luke Parrish, Ruby Holden, Sophia Brashears, Tommy Smitherman, Reagan Brashears, Boyd Brashears and great-nephews, Kenny Parrish III and Ryder Parrish.
