Jerry Ann Ellis, age 77, of Corsicana passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 13, 2019. She was born to Grace M. Ellis and Arthur L. Ellis, who have long since passed, she is now reunited with them.

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.

An online guestbook is available at and selecting the Jerry Ann Ellis obituary.

Dear Family, I am so very sorry about the loss of your dear loved one. May the thought at Job 33:25 give you comfort in knowing that Ms. Ellis will return to the days of her youth and be able to enjoy life without the infirmities of old age. My sincere condolences to you.

Our church 2nd Ave Missionary Baptist Church has a ministry there very Sunday. I was always glad to see Jerry. We often visited together and prayed together. I know she loved the Lord and is with Him now. I'm so thankful for getting to know her.

My condolences to the Ellis family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.

Everyone loved Jerry. We have missed her in Sunday School, worship services, Vacation Bible School, choir, Living Christmas Tree and fellowships since she has been living at Heritage Oaks. A couple of years ago the staff went to see her at Heritage Oaks on her birthday. We took cake and some gifts for a surprise party! She was thrilled to see us and to be the center of attention that afternoon. We had a great time with her that day! When I heard that she had died I knew she was singing "O Holy Night" with the angels. There will never be another Jerry in our lives! Do you think there are beauty shops in Heaven? Becky Thurston
