Her journey began on Dec. 21, 1930 in Georgiana. Jerrydee married her loving husband Thomas on Sept. 6, 1947. They resided in Georgiana until 1952, then settled down in Gulf Shores, living in the Gulf State Park for over 41 years. Jerrydee was employed at Vanity Fair – Robertsdale as a Lace Burner and later employed at the State Park and other community services. After retirement, Jerrydee and Thomas moved back home to Georgiana where she thoroughly enjoyed raising her family.
Jerrydee was the glue to our family. She was a strong determined woman who would do anything she could for her loved ones. She was always encouraging, positive, and smiling with her family as well as anyone she’d meet. She was definitely one of the kindest souls you’d ever meet.
Let us not forget her little furbaby Brownie, who loved her as much as she loved him.
Jerrydee is now with the love of her life, Thomas and has ended her life’s journey. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother/GG and will be greatly missed.
