Jerelyn Mae (Jerry) Harris

Jerry passed away on April 17, 2017 in Seattle after a long battle with dementia. She was born on January 27, 1932 in Muscatine, IA, the daughter of Wayne and Iva Lyon. She ended up in Spokane, WA where she met and married Alfred Miles Harris Jr., and they shared an amazing 63 years together before Al’s passing in 2015. Jerry worked as an insurance adjustor for most of her working career, but above all else she was the mother of three sons, Wayne, Kevin and Vincent, and grandmother to three boys, Andrew, Joseph and Thomas. She loved all her boys but always wanted a girl, and this would come true with the birth of her great-grandchildren.  Twins Robert and Natalie (finally a girl in the harris family), and then this past year little Ryan. Jerry loved all aspects of life, whether it was relaxing on a beach, 18 holes of golf, or crazy antics at a casino, but none of it was important to her without her family in tow. Jerry’s life will be celebrated at Aegis Callahan House in Shoreline, where she spent her final years dealing with dementia. The staff were beyond amazing and became her second family during her time of need. They are located at 15100 1st Ave NE in Shoreline, and the event will take place April 23rd from 1-3pm. Jerry will rest with her husband Al at Holy Cross Cemetery located at 7200 N Wall St. in Spokane, and the family will have an inurnment there on May 30th at 2pm.
