She is remembered as kind, soft spoken and organized. The family says that she was always well dressed with her nails and hair done for any gathering or function. They also say that they never heard Jerri utter a word of complaint, even during her long battle with MS. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and will be dearly missed by her family.

A Mother always understands,

the things you say and do.

She overlooks each of your faults,

she finds the best in you.

A Mother’s love is a special love,

it inspires you each day.

She spreads her joy and happiness,

in her warm and caring way…

A Mother’s all these things and more,

there’s no greater treasure known.

The most precious Mom in all the world, is the one I call my own.
