Jodine “Jodi” Anne Kidd Williamson, age 81, of Marysville, formerly of Tamarac, Florida and Alliance, Ohio, died Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at Memorial Gables. Jodi retired from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where she served as executive secretary for the science department for many years. Born and raised in Alliance, Ohio, she graduated from Alliance High School in 1959 and was a Rainbow Girl for the Masons. After High School, Jodi worked as a bank teller at The Alliance Federal Bank, and after the birth of her first child, she became a fulltime homemaker. When her children were older, she reentered the workforce and became the office manager for the Wood County Board of Education. She and her loving and devoted husband of 40 years, Jack, traveled extensively and loved taking cruises and visiting friends throughout the United States. An avid collector, she and Jack enjoyed antiquing and thrift shopping to look for a “good bargain.” She will be most remembered as a good conversationalist and for her generosity and hospitality, with her cup of iced tea close at hand. She was born May 24, 1941 in Alliance to the late William Galbraith and Doris Ailene Goddard Kidd. She was also preceded in death by her siblings, Robert “Bud” William (Mary) Kidd and Barbara Kidd (Junior) Carrier. She is survived by her husband, Jack Thomas Williamson, whom she married October 23, 1982 in Bowling Green, Ohio; her children, Tracy Carrier (Joe) Swope of Lakeland, Florida, Todd Blake, Kristen Blake, and Bill Blake of Toledo, Ohio, Jennifer (Allan) Williamson of St. Louis, Missouri and Kristine (Richard) Rausch of Marysville, Ohio; her grandchildren, Amy, Kaitlyn, Emily, Madison, William, Kaleb, Kennedy, Autumn, Liam, Aidan, Leo, Mac and Ali; her great-grandchildren, Max, Hudson and Isla; a brother-in-law, Charles Williamson; and many nieces, nephews and other relatives.
