Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Jerry had touched in some way throughout her very memorable life. Jerry was an active member of the P.I.M.E. missionary, was a devoted Catholic, a greeter at St. Brigid of Kildare Church, and spent her life as a homemaker for her seven kids. Jerry loved spending time with her children and grandchildren, enjoyed playing cards, never missed a party, and was loved by everyone who met her. Jerry was an active member of Willowbrook by Day. She spent the last few years of her life attending their day program, socializing with the other members and making memories. The staff were exceptional at making her feel right at home, greeting her with a smile and her Diet Coke each morning. Jerry was preceded in death by her parents Sarah Sophia “Sadie” Cook and Louis Hoffer, her grandson Lionel Calloway and siblings Grelda Ritchey, Cecilia Hupp, Lester Hoffer, Leota Wiley, Elmer “Dick” Hoffer and Rita Hoffer.
