Jody grew up in the Carmen, Ok area and attended Carmen Public Schools. She married Terry Ryel in 1969, and they had four sons together. They eventually grew apart, and on December 8, 2005, she married Roy Sharp in Las Vegas, Nevada, blending his three children with her four. Jody balanced her family life with her work; working at Imation in Weatherford, Ok and as a correctional guard at Cornell Correctional Facility in Hinton, Oklahoma. Jody loved to cook and keep a clean, neat home. She loved to travel, stay in motels and meet new people. She loved to camp out with her family and loved a good party. She had a smile that always brightened the room. She did not like confrontation between family members and tried to be the peacemaker and stay in the middle. Jody always was thinking about the needs of others over herself. Most of all, she loved doing things with her sons and stepchildren.
Jody is survived by her husband, Roy Sharp, of Enid; her mother, Mary Allen, of Oklahoma City; four sons, Stan Ryel of Oklahoma City; Brian Ryel and wife Kathy, of Aline, OK; Travis Ryel and wife Ashlee, of Carmen, OK; Lance Ryel and wife Ashley, of Houston, TX; a stepdaughter, Sheridan Postier and husband Brad, of St. Charles, MO; two stepsons, Brad Sharp and wife Michelle, of Edmond, OK; Kyle Sharp and wife Nikki, of Edmond, OK; sixteen grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She also leaves her siblings, six sisters, Loretta Johnson and husband Melvin, of Shawnee, OK; Cindy Keith and husband Ken, of Enid; Brenda Rogers and Patrick Murphy, of Oklahoma City; Teresa Jones and husband Mike, of Dyersburg, TN; Jane Ingraham and husband Bruce, of Enid; and Shirley Neal and Kirby Winters, of Blanchard, OK. Jody’s brothers John Morris and wife Tamara, of Lane, Ok and Bruce Morris and wife Jamie, of Atoka, Ok also survive her as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and other family and many friends.
She is preceded in death by her father, Robert Morris; step father, Jim Allen; infant sister, Lourita Morris; maternal grandparents, John and Lydia Rauh; paternal grandparents, John and Amy Morris; and brother in law Elgin Morrison.
