She enjoyed managing Dairy Queens for over ten years and taught her sons a great work ethic as they all worked together at Dairy Queen. Later she worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield in the claims department. In 1990 she began to work for Price Mart as a demo lady and that's when Grandma Jerry was born. She won several blue ribbons for peanut brittle and it became her calling card. She loved entertaining and you never knew what funny hat or costume that she might come up with. She had a clown/balloon ministry with her church and entertained at other events. She believed that Laughter was the best medicine and she sent jokes and funny stories to many friends that needed a smile. She was also a great storyteller and when the world needed a smile she made sure it happened!
We all Love You Mom, Mema, Grandma Jerry, Jerry Nell and we will miss your love, your laughter, your smile, and the joy you gave to all of us!
