Jerry Sharpe was born in Los Angeles, CA and moved to St. Thomas, NV at the age of 6. When St. Thomas was flooded she moved to Whitney for a short time then finally settled in N. Las Vegas. On her 18th birthday she married Gordon Sharpe. They were married two weeks short of 45 years when Gordon passed away.
Jerry's greatest asset was her ability to make you feel welcomed and loved. She was known as "Mom" to most.
Her main past times during her later years were needlepoint, reading, jig-saw puzzles and Rummikub. Each member of her family and close friends received a few holiday needlepoint baskets filled with goodies every year.
She will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.
