Donna Jo 'Jody' Arrowsmith Keiser

Posted 3/8/2018

Donna Jo “Jody” Arrowsmith Keiser passed away on March 1, 2018 at Washington, Pennsylvania.

She was born on Jan. 31, 1957 to Richard and Donna Arrowsmith of Bentley. On April 6, 2007 she married Dana Keiser at Halstead.

She is survived by her husband Dana, stepchildren Hanna Keiser, Kody Keiser (Alyx) and Patrick Pialand, her beloved grandchildren Dixie, Emma, Brantley and Owen, brother Ron Arrowsmith (Kelli), two sisters Loretta (Cliff) Ware and Marcia Marrara, two aunts and many nieces, nephews and cousins. She is also survived by her beloved pets, Duchess, Bubba and Frankie.

Jody took time to know many people, friends and family members well. She enjoyed life and she loved people and animals. She was interested in and studied many different ideas and subjects. She was fun loving, giving and artistic. She was deeply interested in being the best person she knew how to be and trying to do the best she knew how.

Jody tried to give back to the community and to her family in every way that she could. Jody’s beautiful presence in this world and beautiful example of how to live will be missed by all who knew her loving ways.

Jody was preceded in death by her parents Richard and Donna Arrowsmith and by her brother-in-law Albert Marrara.
