Jodi Lynn Mattice Winterton, 58, ended her earthly journey and returned home to her Father in Heaven after a painful, prolonged battle with Crohn’s Disease at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.
Jodi was born on June 5, 1961 in South Laguna, CA. to Kenneth R. Mattice and Jacqueline McIntire Mattice. Jodi has always been a creative spirit, she loved anything that had to do with the arts. She was a beautiful painter and began painting as a teenager, her paintings were so beautiful that as a Senior in Grossmont High School she was asked to plan, prepare and paint a mural on one of their walls. It was displayed there for many years. She continued to paint for as long as she was able. She has always loved to sew as well and right from the start she had the ability to sew without a pattern if she wished. It always came out looking like a seamstress had created it. She loved to crochet and even began knitting; she always had some sort of cross-stitching piece to work on to keep her busy. When the family moved to Utah from California, Jodi began attending UVCC and became a member of the Lambda Delta Sigma sorority. She loved the camaraderie and the strength she received from the women who attended, and she was a leader among them.
Jodi has always loved the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and she has always been very close to the spirit, she loved to follow the teachings of the Lord, she loved the guidance she received from the Prophets of our Heavenly Father; she just loved every aspect of the Gospel. She had a beautiful spirit about her and would help those around her in any way possible. Later in her life, she became very strong in accepting the help of others and wished that she could actually be the one helping.
She married Alan G. Winterton on November 14, 1992 in the Jordan River Temple. She loved being a wife and mother, and she will miss those she loves as much as they will miss her.
Jodi currently lived in Pleasant Grove, Utah and is survived by her husband, Alan G. Winterton and her children, Shantel, Kassie, and Nathan, her mother Jacqueline D. McIntire Mattice, her brother Mark R. Mattice, her sister Lisa (John) Tobler and sister Susan Bracken (Jason Sorensen), the Elliotts (Aunty Jan and Uncle Roy), along with various nieces, nephews, and cousins.
