David and Leigh, I am so sorry for your loss. My 93 year old mother read Cody's obituary, cut it out and sent it to me. I was aware of only a few activities of Cody's. What I remember well was her love of Leigh. I was a neighbor who babysat for Leigh when she was small. I was fortunate to know Cody as a wife and loving mother. I also remember her love for her dog. I do not remember its name but she showed me how to carry it outside and down the basement stairs. I am glad I knew her as the wonderful mother and animal lover that she was. I will pray for her and for you.

Leigh, Your parents were such good friends to my parents. Laura noted all the connections in her note prior to this one. I still have a black tray with a cat inlay on it that they gave me, I think as a graduation gift. You are in my prayers.

Leigh, I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. What long, full life she had. Our parents' paths crossed at First Congregational Church, AAUW, your mom's campaign, Riverview, to name a few. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I had the opportunity to wait on the Splitt's for many years of my employment at BDMCC and RCC. I truly enjoyed hearing not only Harley's stories and being greeted with his kind smile and it was also fun being questioned by Cody about everything going on in my life and why. Ha Ha. She was a spit fire but she also was very kind and caring.

I knew Cody when I worked at Girl Scouts of the Fox River Area. I so enjoyed her enthusiasm and love for the girls and women in GS. RIP Cody, and my condolences to her family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Leigh - Hugs to you! I hope you are doing well and I wanted to send my sympathy and love to you for the loss of your mom. I so enjoyed listening to your mom and hearing her stories and passion. I am grateful that Bill K also recently shared pictures from her last birthday. She was an amazing woman. She worked hard for herself and to help others. I will be forever grateful to have met your mother, father and you. While I live in Georgia and am in Wisconsin often, so reach out if you want to talk.

Cody was my neighbor while growing up in the 50s and 60s on Peabody St. She was always inviting the neighborhood kids into her house for cookies, and she often let me walk her dog Sambo. It wasn’t until I became an adult that I realized what an amazing woman she was. She is one of my best neighborhood memories. Very sorry for your loss Leigh.

Cody was an absolutely amazing person. She was always so encouraging and supportive of other female lawyers. She was one of the smartest people I have ever known! She always asked about my daughter, remembering her name, even though we did not see each other often. She always had a smile for everyone! Our lawyers, our state and our country are all better for having Cody among us!! She will be truly missed!

Cody Split was an AMAZING woman! What a trailblazer!! She ran against my Father for Judge and lost but my Father was always so so so so impressed w/ her. He would tell us kids how remarkable she was. She did so much when it was so difficult for women. Her family should be immensely proud of her. What a woman!!!

I had the honor to meet you when you came to Post 38 to speak, I had just been appointed Post Chaplain. My wife and I were both sailors in the NAVY. You have at last reached your final port of call. Well Done Sailor!

Having known Cody for nearly 60 years, as a colleague in the practice of law, and as a member of the Appleton community, I want to extend my sincere condolences to her family. Whether she and I were representing opposing parties in a family law proceeding, or encountering one another at some civic event, she was always cheerful and sincere- - - a very genuine person. Cody was honorable in her character and integrity and admirable in her undertakings and accomplishments. Our community has lost one of its finest citizens. Again, I offer my (and my wife Char's) sympathies to Cody's family.
