Jody Blonshine

April 6, 1966 — February 24, 2019

Jody L. Blonshine, age 52 of McBride, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 24, 2019, at Woodland Hospice House in Mt. Pleasant after a brief battle with cancer.

A wonderful and loving Mom, Jody was very proud of her daughter Lynsey and all her accomplishments. As the Lakeview Youth Bowling Coach/Manager at the Lakeview Alley Cat, Jody was also affectionately known and referred to as “mom” by many others. She loved animals, especially skunks and rescued countless cats and dogs throughout her life. Jody loved her family and was a very proud aunt. She was Eric Church’s #1 fan and thoroughly enjoyed going to many of his concerts. Each year, Jody looked forward to traveling with her daughter to Mackinaw City and the bridge, which was her “happy place”. Her passing leaves a hole in the hearts of her family and she will be deeply missed by everyone.

Surviving Jody is her daughter, Lynsey Blonshine of McBride; sisters, Debbie (Dan) Bunn of Lansing; Lori Ganser of West Virginia; brother, Gary Blonshine of Lansing; nieces, Kim (Joe) Seegraves of Shepherd; Emmi (Jon) Reel of Rockford; Kellie (Jeff) Glennie of Mulliken; Rebekah Blonshine of California; nephews, Matt (Vanessa) Blonshine of Lansing; Dan Bunn of Lansing; many great nieces and nephews; close friends, Stacey Jaquays of Coral; Beth Elliott of Haslett; Paul & Kathy Wood of Lansing; her five “fur babies”, Patches; Gonzo; Oliver; Cheshire and Finn and all of her Lakeview Youth Bowling kids.

Jody is preceded in death by her parents, Ray & Alice (Armstrong) Blonshine and a sister-in-law, Connie Blonshine.
