JEARLDINE "JERRY" HEARING
Jerry Hearing, age 93 passed away September 8, 2016, peacefully at her home in Lacey, WA.

She was born August 21, 1923 to Robert Roy Reeder & Hattie Pearl Herring at their home near Parkland, OK. She was blessed to be the youngest born of five children. Her siblings were Joe Reeder, Theola Fogler, Opal Cowsar, and Ruby Ogle.

Jerry graduated high school early and started working. She married Art Hearing on August 24 1944. After living in several different states, they settled in Ojai, CA where she started working as a bookkeeper for Gordon Braker Plumbing Co. After 34 years, she retired as the Vice President of the company. Later Art and Jerry moved to Lacey, WA. to be close to their son.

In Jerry's younger years she enjoyed boating, water skiing, basketball, dancing, horseback riding, shopping and visiting. She was very active in the First Baptist Church of Lacey and in the community until illness and arthritis slowed her down. Even then, she continued to keep up with her church, news and events.

We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from her, among them: God first, family, and then friends. Always wear your best to church, take pride in who you are. Enjoy life and the work you are doing, for life is too short not to. Jerry was truly a woman of noble character (Proverbs 31: 10-31).

Jerry was preceded in death by her husband Art Hearing on March 20, 1992. She is survived by her son Arden James Hearing Jr., Grandson's: Arden James Hearing lll and wife Jennie, and Paul Robert Hearing. Great Grandchildren: Sienna Jade, Amber Lunna, and Sage Landon (children of Arden and Jennie Hearing).

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Arthritis Foundation.
