Jerri, otherwise known as Alex, was a practicing Catholic and stood strong in her faith and belief that angels were all around us. She enjoyed watching competitive cooking shows and recreating her favorite dishes for her friends and family. Born on one of the hottest days of the year, she embodied the sun wherever she went. Her love and light never wavered and her smile is one that will be deeply missed by those fortunate enough to have known her. Her smile was often largest when watching the Dallas Cowboys or Utah Jazz win a game. Her compassion was one of her greatest qualities, and blessed more than just the people in her life. Thanks to her care, all the animals in her neighborhood had a full belly and a warm place to stay. Not only was she a constant light to those able to experience her warmth, she was also a direct descendant of Davey Crockett, and she carried that fighting spirit with her in her final hours.
After passing from complications due to a perforated viscera, she will always be remembered as a daughter, sister, and aunt. A soul taken far too soon.
