Condolence & Memory Journal


Jerri was a rare friend who made everyone feel very special. We met through her daughter Charlene and son-in-law Greg while visiting TX for the first time 17 years ago. It never creased to amaze us how much energy Jerri had and we will never forget going to night garage sales and then dancing. And, boy could she dance!! We will miss her, but will see her soon while praising our Lord and GOD together forever. Until then sleep well. We love you.

Aunt Jerri was one of the most wonderful ladies I have ever met. I am so glad that I met her so many years ago & I have been blessed my knowing her. She had the kindest heart and was always looking for ways to help people. She always put others needs before her own.

I have so many wonderful memories of visiting her every summer with my family. I will never forget how she taught me to play Blackjack at 14 & the countless hours that we all played with her. Looking back I only have the best memories from a lady that will always hold a special place in my heart.

I know she is in Heaven with so many wonderful relatives catching up and laughing that way that only she could. God has received a true Angel & I believe she is looking down and keeping watch on all of us. She will be greatly missed but please take comfort in knowing that she touched every single person that she met.

Love Always,

We will miss our beloved "Miss Jerri" very much. We know she is in Heaven now rejoicing in the light of our Lord Jesus and delighting in her reunion with her children and other family and friends there. I always called her M.O.M for (my other mother) because from when I first met her she reminded me so much of my own late mother. Just the phrases she would use and mannerisms,etc. I like to think of her up there dancing with the angels ans awaiting the day when her loved ones here on earth join her in paradise. God bless and prayers of peace and comfort to all her family and friends.
