    To Jerry’s Family,
    I became acquainted with Jerry through working at First Christian Church, and she became one of my favorite ladies and also I considered her a friend. I always enjoyed talking to her when she would call the church office and I would hear her voice. My husband and I also attended First Christian and we both were able to get acquainted with her even more. She was such a special person, and I know you will miss her dearly. I was saddened to hear that she had passed, but may it give you comfort to know that your Loved One is rejoicing in her heavenly home!! May the Lord comfort you in the days and weeks to come.

    Peg, Sandy & Cathy~
    Your mom was a true gem that will always hold a special place in my heart. I will treasure my days that I spent with her while I was growing up. I will miss seeing her everyday at the manor but I know that she is no longer in pain and at peace. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Sandi, Peg, Kathy and Family,

    Jerry was a special friend. Jerry and Bill just live down road from us. Every summer our families would get together and put up over 100 pints of sweet corn. We had the best time even if it was a lot of work. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    God Bless,
    Dick and Janet Gray

    Aunt Jerry was one in a million. She will be remembered for her unconditional love of family, open arms for hugs for all. Her wit and humor, infectious laugh and making everyone feel important to her..Her kindness knew no bounds.She led a life of love and sorrow and taught us all how to get through the bad times through faith and strength. I loved her very much.
