Jerrie a soft spoken, God fearing lady will be missed. She loved her family and her Lord. She entered the gates of Heaven with a new body in Christ. No more sickness. She is smiling down on us. She fought the good fight and God has said,”well done thy good and faithful servant”. Our family loved you dearly ❤️

I had the honor of knowing and having Jerrie Lynn as my sister-in law for 55 years. She was a kind and caring person, always concerned about a how you were doing. As I look back..I think of humor and smile, as she was the only person I ever met with her southern drawl that could critique you in a way that you didn't realize it till after the fact.
Perfection was real to her...as we know life is not perfect. but, when she went out in public, she always dressed classy and looked lovely from head to toe. A real Southern Belle.
I'm going to miss our phone conversations... we had more in our latter years.
I guess she was tired of suffering and decided to go home and with be with her Lord.... God's Blessings to Lynn and her family.

My Mom, her sister, named me after her Janet Lynn and I am proud of Lynn. She was a beautiful woman inside and out she always loved the Lord and she was very spiritual and talked of God to me and others.
