    Prayers for you Kent and family. Your mother was a very pretty lady. May you and your family find peace and joy in the Hope that is found in Jesus.

    My memories of Jerry were from our time working together at Metro Community College. She was always a bright light in my day. Smiling, smiling but always with that wry sense of humor. I know the world will be so much less without her.. My sympathy for your loss.

    I am sad to learn of Geraldine’s (Jerrie) passing. I worked with her at Metro Community College for many years and have shared a lot of experiences, confidentiality discussions, happy times and some not-so-happy experiences she has gone through. But, she always came through and was a ray of sunshine in my life. I am so sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you all during this time. She will be missed by all.. Donna Stadtlander

    What an amazing women she was. I loved working with her and the knowledge I gained. She was such an loving and kind person. Her stories were the best! Working with her in the office was so encouraging. Blessings and peace to the family. May she rest in peace. Thank you Jerri (heart)
