Though it’s likely no one reading this knows Jodi Aufdencamp, odds are you know a restaurateur like her.
Married, mother of two, co-owner of five Mama Mimi’s Take ‘N Bake Pizza shops in and around Columbus, Ohio.
Died Aug 17 after a protracted battle with cancer. She’ll be buried this moring.
A friend of mine since 2002, Jodi was no ordinary woman. She was a life force, a hard-working, creative firecracker whose determination to succeed in business was shared by her husband, Jeff.
She was 46 when she died in his arms last Friday, with their kids at her bedside.
The couple’s business is a buttoned up enterprise, so I’m assuming she had life insurance.
