JerryAnn and I were sisters from the same father. She was 15 yrs older than me but I have the fondest childhood memories of her visits. She was my hero as a young girl, our Daddy passed away when I was 20 yrs old and I lost touch with JerryAnn, but had recently had phone conversations and she I always felt the love even after so many lost years. Rest In Peace my sweet sister ! ❤️

Jerry Ann was my cousin but more like a sister to me. Her two sisters and my sister and I grew up together and shared many memories. Our Moms, Evelyn & Helen were very close sisters . Jerry always found time to check on me ( & others) in my times of great stress ... She was a true woman of faith, love and peace. I can honestly say I do not remember her being mad at anyone. She and Tom had a beautiful marriage and family. I remember all the kind things they did for my Moma Daddy ,Shane, Tiffany and me. I will miss her laughter , I will miss her “tell it like it is straightforwardness,” and I will miss her love for me and my kids. ... I love you Jerry Ann & I will miss you very much 🙏.
