Joe and I extend our sincere sympathy & prayers to all of the family during this difficult time. Jerry was a beautiful lady inside and out. She always had a smile on her face & a kind word. Her baking abilities were incredible. So many fond memories of her when she lived on Perry Street. She was in our Canasta Club and we were always excited when we went to her house as we knew dessert would be something incredible. Amazing pie maker. May Jerry rest in peace. We loved her. ~ Joe & Dolores Yannarella, Edmond, Oklahoma
