Though born in Wichita Falls, TX the family moved to Corsicana, TX when she was a young girl where she would sing her way through High School and well into her senior years at the First Baptist Church of Corsicana, TX. She won the hearts of many, including myself, singing “Oh Holy Night” every year at Christmas time and WOW could she hit those high notes. She sang in the annual Living Christmas Tree as well as every Sunday at church for many years. She loved her weekly shopping trips, garage sales and you just try to keep her out of the beauty salon. Jerry was truly loved and will be missed by many, none more than those who are with her now, her parents Arthur and Grace Ellis.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
She is survived by her brother James C. Ellis as well as her nephew Michael J. Ellis, Michael’s wife Stacy R. Ellis, Mike & Stacy’s children; Hanna Tidwell, Drew Beall, Dylan Ellis, Sydney Ellis, Meredith Ellis and Harper Ellis.
Visitation with the family will be held on Monday, April 15, 2019 from 12:30 – 1:30 P.M. at Corley Funeral Home. Graveside services will follow at 2:00 P.M. on Monday, April 15, 2019 at Oakwood Cemetery in Corsicana with Jeff Fitzhugh officiating.
