    Sympathy to Jim and all you kids and your families. Enjoyed working with Jerri at Bob’s Sirloin Room in Seneca when I was a Sophomore, Junior and Senior. She was always so cheerful and lots of fun memories with her at Bob’s. Loved coming to the house to do her hair and nails for a special wedding in the family. She giggled and was so happy for me to be there for her reminishing our “fun times”. Also loved caring for her at the home on occasions. Always fun to drop by a special piece of cake/cookies for Jim and Jerri and visit. Rest in Peace Jerri !! Betty and Mike Haug

    I’m saddened to hear about aunt Jerrie. My condolences to Jim and all her family. I will always I have a special place in my soul for Jerrie. When my daughter Summer was struggling with her eating disorder at the age of 12 in 2011, Jerrie wrote her a few letters while she was hospitalized in Denver. I doubt Jerrie and Summer ever met before, but what a very thoughtful and kind gesture. She will always be remembered.
