George & Ginny Dieruf – Founders, Board Member and President

Lost Cody to Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 23.  We miss her and she is in our hearts forever.  Our Cody Foundation keeps Cody’s legacy alive and at the same time we are able to help out other with Cystic Fibrosis




Susan CoxSusan C Cox – Vice President (Certified Medical Assistant, Bozeman Health GI Clinic) I serve on the board because I believe in what Ginny and George and the Foundation are doing to help our area families battling cystic fibrosis. I was on-board the very first time I met them. Cody’s story touches the heart. Amazing.

I serve on the CBDF Board because I grew up watching Cody dance, and wanted to give back to my community in some way. Knowing that we are able to provide assistance for our clients in the local area to live more active lives is a good feeling.

Shelley BealShelley Beal – Treasurer (Administrative Group Manager, First Interstate Bank)
My reason for being on the board is you guys of course!  I have just known you for many years, and Cody was friends with my girls growing up. When you guys lost Cody and started the foundation in her name to benefit others going through the same thing that you went through, it was just a passion of mine to be involved to help others as well.
