Jerrilynn Roland went to be with her Heavenly Father after an illness at the age of 71. She will be remembered for her loving heart and nature. She looked in awe at God's creation. God's gift to her was the talent to produce magnificent works of art through her sewing abilities. Jerrilynn had the ability to lift people's spirits. An example of this is that she would dress up in clown clothes and go to the nursing homes to give joy to them. She had a generous heart and gave freely to others. She loved her family which was evident at family gatherings.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Kathleen and father, Kenneth Westenhoefer.
Jerrilynn is survived by her loving daughters, Kimberly (Rob) Skaggs and Rebecca (Chuck) Reezor; grandchildren, Nick Skaggs and James Montgomery, III; great grandchild; brother, Ray (Helga) Roland; sisters, Edna (Donny) Varble and Kathy (Willie) Steilberg; aunt; uncle; several nieces; nephews, cousins and friends.
