We regret to announce the passing of Jody Kim Sammartino on September 8th, 2016 in Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 53 years. Jody was predeceased by her father Roly Sammartino. She is survived by her loving mother Louise “Thup” Sammartino of Vernon, one sister Debi (Ernie) Gare of Vernon, one brother Barry Sammartino of White Rock, BC and her loving aunt, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews and her extended family.
Jody sweetened and enriched our lives. A private family gathering for Jody will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers those friends wishing to make memorial contributions in memory of Jody may do so to Venture Training or to a charity on one’s choice.
The family wish to thank Darlene and all the staff at Lamton, as well as the nurses on 2W at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital for their love and support of Jody. Funeral arrangements are in the care of VERNON DIGNITY FUNERAL HOME. (250) 542-0155. Condolences may be offered at Vernonfuneralhome.com
