Jodi, Dee, Shalosky, or "D", age 60, passed away on Nov. 13, 2021 in Billings, Montana, at the Billings Clinic surrounded by family and loved ones. 

Jodi was born on Jan. 24, 1961 to Stanford Lee Bradley and Darlene Bradley (Hargrove) in Malta, Montana. Jodi grew up in Park City, Montana, and graduated from Park City High School.

She married John W Shalosky Jr Feb. 28, 1993 and from this union she had four children, Cameron Bradley, Sierra Shalosky, Sienna Shalosky, and Sylvan Shalosky. She was known largely for her cooking great meals for Joliet School, the Joliet St. John's Catholic Church, the Joliet senior center; various community center events, the Rockvale Restaurant, and many other events and gatherings. She also taught CCD class for St. John's Church and volunteered for a program that helped women who were victims of harsh circumstances.

She was a cook at the Joliet School for many years. She also cooked dinner for Joliet's St. John's youth group on a weekly basis and taught CCD on and off over the past 30 years or so. Her volunteer cooking also extended to cooking for fundraising dinners, potlucks, and church socials. She organized a meal team at St. John's to cook meals for families with new babies or for those who suffered a death or who were dealing with a serious illness or disability in the family. In other words, after caring for her own family, her passion, her livelihood, and her ministry were all about cooking.

She was a lifelong Catholic and loved cooking for her family with the  same passion as cooking for large events. She also loved her family deeply, the color purple, animals (especially whales and horses) history, and trivia. She loved Jeopardy and was a big fan of Alex Trebek.

She is survived by her husband, John Shalosky, brother Beaumont Bradley, and sister Gina Bradley, her children, Cameron Bradley, Sierra Shalosky, Sienna Shalosky, and Sylvan Shalosky, and grandchildren, Rae Jones, Kamilla Stout and Ari Moore-Shalosky. Her Memorial Mass was held Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021 at 10 a.m. at Joliet's St. John's Catholic Church 404 West Central Ave Joliet, Montana.

Smith Olcott Funeral Chapel has taken care of the cremation. Condolences and memories may be shared with the family on their website at www.smithfuneralchapels.com.
