Memories of my dear cousin Jeri go back to the 1940's. As kids we had such terrific times together even when we got into a tad of trouble such as our rowdy behavior when we broke our Uncle Wray's bed during a visit to see relatives in Florida. Two of our favorite things to do were swimming and playing guessing games of naming movie stars from their initials. Once I was so stumped that I asked Jeri for a hint for L.B. She said "I'm going to find Lucy and play some ball!

I will be forever grateful to Jeri for her help during my divorce. Jeri will be missed by so many. Family, I wish I were there with you. I send my love to all.

I was fortunate to get to know Jeri when we worked home care at the health department. She was so sweet, knowledgeable and helpful. Loved hearing her stories about family. Thankful to have known her and very sorry for your loss.
