Mrs. Coday

It is with a heavy heart that the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home Association announces the passing of our longtime Director and Board Member, Mrs. Jean C. Coday. Mrs. Coday began her volunteer service to the Wilder Association in 1960, serving as a Board Member. Later, in 1993, she would become President of the Board, following the passing of her husband- Joseph D. Coday. In the same year, she would become the Director of the Historic Home and Museum, following the passing of Connie Tidwell. Mrs. Coday has faithfully worked to preserve the legacy of the Wilder family and her preservation efforts are visible throughout Rocky Ridge Farm. Generations of Wilder fans will be indebted to her vision, heartfelt commitment, and generosity. Memorial contributions to honor her memory can be made by visiting: Memorial Contributions
