She also worked as an organizer for the Billy Graham Crusade. Jerrie Sue’s favorite job was working as a full time Nana which she enjoyed until her death. Jerrie Sue was crazy about her grandchildren and her crazy was on full display at her grandchildren’s extracurricular activities. She was often referred to as a “fireball” due to her animated cheering and yelling for her grandchildren. You always knew when Jerrie Sue was in attendance.
Jerrie Sue married Sam Dlungonski in April of 1975. Though their marriage ended, their special friendship continued until her death. Knowing how Jerrie Sue loved to torment Sam, it will probably continue even longer.
Jerrie Sue’s first love was her children and grandchildren, but her love for animals ran a close second. Jerrie Sue’s animal obsession began at a young age. Her pets ranged from alligators to skunks to raccoons and even wolves. Basically, anything she found she brought home to love. When Jerrie Sue left this world, she left behind her precious fur babies Liberty Bell, Luna and Diamond. Jerrie Sue’s passion was not only for animals but for people as well. Jerrie Sue never met a stranger and was known for opening her heart and home to anyone needing a hand up.

God Bless you.

My heart breaks for you all. Jerrie Sue was one of a kind. As a young girl she cared for me just like a niece. And when I'd see her as a adult she'd give the best hugs. She always had the most beautiful smile. I'm keeping you all in my prayers. God bless you. ??
