Wednesday, February 6, 2019So sorry for your loss. Jerry was my country school teacher at the school near Lone Tree. I had to walk to school through corn fields and cross a creek. My dad laid a plank across the creek and when it would rain real hard the creek would fill with water which ran very close to the top of the plank. My older sisters were not afraid to cross it I was, so I choice to walk the road which was about three mile distance. My sisters told Jerry that I would be late for school. She understood. Oh what good memories of a wonderful teacher she was. I recently talked with her at a alumni banquet at the Lone Tree Legion and really enjoyed seeing her again. Hold on to the wonderful memories that you have of you mother. My deepest sympathy.

Tuesday, February 5, 2019The best Mother In Law any man could ever hope for. Her family is her legacy as is always the case and from her children to her great grandchildren, her influence as the family matriarch left no doubt about her character, class, and integrity. All wrapped in her love. What a lady.

Tuesday, February 5, 2019Hey Ruess family, I want to send my condolences to you all for the loss of such a great family member: mom, grandma, great-grandma, great-great-grandma, aunt, and so many other titles this amazing lady held in just your family alone. As I send my condolences, I also want to congratulate you for the honor of being related to such a strong, kind woman. What a difference she made in this world! I will remember her for always being so kind to me, especially after my divorce. I knew that when I attended church I could always count on her to come over and talk to me afterwards. Her friendliness always made me feel special somehow... She grew up across the road from my dad and used to talk to me about that and ask how he was doing. I called my parents this morning and we talked about her. I know SO many of you-her relatives! All great people, just as Gerrie is/was. I'm not sure I can get off of work, but I will try my hardest to be at the funeral. If I can't get time off, know that my heart will be with you all on Thursday morning as you celebrate her life, Karen Jedlicka

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Jim & Susie

Sunday, February 3, 2019She was a great neighbor to me thru the years after her and Bob moved to town...She would be out on her daily walks and if I was out in my yard or just coming home from work, we would stop and visit about everything.. flowers, family, friends, what was going in town, the fair.. she always, always had a smile and a deep love of family. I will truly miss our visits, especially when I am tending the roses that I got "Aunt" Beryle Brooke, they were always a topic of conversation when the proceeded to bloom...rest in peace Gerri, Bob has been waiting along time for his bride to join him in eternity....
