Kerrie Ann Rutherford – age 48, passed away on December 25, 2020 in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Kerrie was born on November 14, 1972 in Groom, Texas. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s of Finance from DeSales University in 1995. Kerrie excelled at anything she put her mind to. She had a heart made of gold and loved everyone and everything. Family meant the world to Kerrie; she cherished her time huddled in the family room surrounded by her daughters, husband, and pets; especially her loyal companion dog Wicket. She treasured her family’s yearly trips to Hilton Head Island. She loved to watch the sunrise surrounded by the simple beauty, warm coastal air, and peaceful quiet. She was extremely creative. She loved to make unique handmade jewelry for her friends and family. Every piece was so beautiful; crafted with meaning and intention. Kerrie loved the holidays, birthdays; any special day to recognize her family or friends. She loved to show them how much they meant to her through her gifts, decorating, and thoughtful gestures. She was the “gift master”. Kerrie was selfless, caring, and she loved unconditionally. She was a warm, compassionate, graceful woman and she will be deeply missed. She is survived by her husband, Brad; daughters: Hannah and Chloe; parents: Cindy and Robert Reichard; mother-in-law, Carol Rutherford; siblings: Rick (Tasha) Pyron, Lisa Reichard, Todd (Michelle) Reichard; and many loving family members.

Brad, Hannah,Chloe and family and friends! My heart is breaking for you all as I just found out this morning. I am so sorry to hear this and though we haven’t been in touch for sometime, Kerrie and I were very close in our younger years and I have so many vivid memories of our days together from our Duran Duran obsession to building tents and sleeping under the stars!! I would have dropped everything to say my goodbyes to my dearest friend and cousin. Please know that I love you all! Robin

I did not meet Kerrie personally, but I did have a unique memory to share that will forever bond me to a woman that I am now learning to be a brilliant and creative mind, a loving and caring mother and an amazing best friend and wife to Brad Rutherford (my boss).

My bond to Kerrie is somewhat unique and represented by a personal journey through the creative process of designing and creating mala bead necklaces.

Kerrie made a very personal and unique mala bead neckless that personified what I cared deepest about in life and what was very near to my heart; my best friend and life long partner and loving wife, Christina.

As a result of Kerrie's passing, I now wrap this mala bead neckless around a creative piece my wife made for me to remind me that life is too short and at times shortened in sudden ways and so don't ever forget the most special people we have and cherish them deeply every day.

Although I never knew you, Kerrie, you crafted a piece that touched a very special piece of my heart that no one else can replicate. This combination of built world reminds me of that every day.

My deepest condolences to Brad, Hannah and Chloe, Kerrie's and other family that loved her so very deeply.

You will be deeply missed but fondly remembered. :) :(

Kerrie and I were fast friends. Our friendship that began over shared backyards & a kickball game, and lasted over 14 years is, something I'll cherish forever. We were lucky enough to have one another to share life's many ups and downs with, usually over a good bottle of red wine..or two. Whatever we enjoyed together be it dinner, concerts, shopping, summer in Lake City, a backyard fire, patio sitting, or just a simple check-in there were always smiles and laughs. Kerrie was a generous, thoughtful, compassionate, understanding, wonderful friend who I was lucky to know. My heart will forever miss her.

The first time I saw you as a baby, you were a chunky monkey with the most beautiful little round face. As you grew into a young woman your outer beauty was stunning but your inner beauty was inspirational. Your love for your family could not be denied. I don’t think I have ever known anyone more dedicated to her family. You had a kind word for everyone but as a typical Mama Bear you didn’t allow anyone to mess with your family. I love you so much ❤️

Our deepest sympathy to Kerrie's entire family. Our thoughts and prayer are with you. I/ we had a lot of good times in highschool together. She had the cutest little giggle when she laughed. She always laughed at my jokes, even if they weren't funny. Our best.. Mike Wertman and Kelly Trexler- Wertman .
