Alice Geraldine Ann (Jerry Ann) Howard, passed away at her home in Selah, WA, on Thursday, August 24, 2017. Jerry Ann was born August 26, 1943 in Yakima, WA. She was the first child of Donald & Geraldine Clark. For the first 5 years of her life, Jerry Ann was an only child. Then, her sister Donna was born and three years later sister Linda. It seems like this was the beginning, caring for her younger sisters, where Jerry Ann became the caregiver that she would be for family and friends alike throughout her life.

Jerry Ann lived all her life in the Yakima area, attending school in both Toppenish and Granger. She met the love of her life in high school, George (Roy) Howard and they were married October 27, 1961. They had three children: Angela Dawn Howard, Donald Roy Howard, and Brian Glen Howard.
Jerry Ann was a cook for most of her working career. She worked at several local restaurants, finally retiring from Papa Bairds in Terrace Heights after working there for 15 years. Not only was cooking her career, it was also her passion. She was a great cook! She cooked at holidays, weddings, parties, graduations, anytime anyone asked. She loved to feed the people she cared about. 
Jerry Ann is survived by her husband, Roy, her sister, Linda, 6 grandchildren, and several great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, Don & Geri Clark, her three children, Donnie, Brian, Angie, and her sister, Donna. She will be greatly missed.
