Deal, Jody (Georgiena Rae), 68, passed away peacefully on July 27, 2017 surrounded by family and friends. Jody was born in Cleveland, OH but was raised as a semi-native of Tampa, FL. She graduated from Hillsborough High School and went on to complete her nursing degree. She was employed at Town and Country Hospital (NKA Florida Hospital) until she retired in 2014.

Jody is preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Patti Deal; brother, Lee Deal; nephew, Bruce Hutchcroft and niece, Dinie Deal. She is survived by her sisters, Gwyn Champlin and Aylce Brentari; sister-in-law, Georgene Deal; nieces, Linda Bullock, Cele Moyse, Colleen Reese, Debbie Dixson and Lisa Banbury; nephews, John (Larita) Hutchcroft; great-nephews, Christopher (Kerri) Bullock, Micah Moyse, Jonathan, Joshua, Austin and Hunter Hutchcroft; great-nieces, Kyra Reese, Melissa Dixon, Roxana Hutchcroft; great great-nephews, Uriah Bullock and Ezra Bullock; along with her very best friend and adopted by family, Judy Siebert Cumbie.

Jody was full of life and will be remembered for her caring and compassionate personality, everlasting sense of humor, style and bling, passion for cooking and adoration of her pets. Her love and laughter will be sorely missed.

A very special thank you to the staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital North for the care and attention she received the last few weeks of her life. The family so appreciated their compassion. Jody is now at home with our Lord. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Humane Society in Georgiena’s memory. A visitation is being held on Sunday, August 6, 2017 from 4:00 – 5:00 pm at Blount & Curry Funeral Home Carrollwood Chapel, 3207 W. Bearss Avenue, Tampa with a memorial service at 5:00 pm.
