Jodi R. Mister, businesswoman

Jodi R. Mister, an entrepreneur who established a home cleaning business, died Sunday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center of brain trauma after a fall in her Baldwin home.

She was 44.

Jodi Robyn Holthaus was born in Baltimore and raised in Glen Arm. She was a 1985 graduate of Dulaney High School and attended the University of Maryland, College Park.

In 1993, she married David F. Mister, who is a partner in Mister, Winter & Bartlett, a Timonium law firm.

About a decade ago, Mrs. Mister opened a home cleaning business.

"She was a meticulous housekeeper, so she naturally brought this to her clients who soon became close friends," said Mr. Mister.

Mrs. Mister enjoyed decorating her home and cooking and entertaining family and friends at parties.

"She had two big parties at Christmas," said her husband.

"Some of her favorite dishes were cream of cauliflower soup, and she made the best beef and turkey barbecue," he said. "A couple of years ago, she cooked and cooked for weeks on end and froze the food for a family reunion that we held at our home."

Mrs. Mister was also an avid gardener, antiques collector and reader. She was a fan of Terps basketball.

She was a member of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 3911 Sweet Air Road in Phaenix, Baltimore County, where a memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday.

In addition to her husband, Mrs. Mister is survived by two sons, Matthew Mister of Baldwin and Andrew Mister of Leesburg, Va.; her mother, Joan Holthaus of Baldwin; three sisters, Lauri Bartlett of Baldwin, Heidi Gillis of Towson and Molli Carter of Selbyville, Del.; and many nieces and nephews.
