SunflowersA Life of Inspiration
 
Jerri Walker grew up in Dufur, attended Dufur schools, and married her high school sweetheart, Harold DePriest.  Shortly after the birth of their third child, Jerri was diagnosed with cancer.
 
As she endured 18 years of treatment and fought for her life, Jerri became driven to support and inspire others.  She felt compelled to help everyone, especially those with a problem or low self-esteem.  Her positive outlook never wavered and her smile continued to light up our community until her dying day.
 
Jerri touched the lives of young and old with her joyful spirit.  All who knew her would agree, Jerri was a cheerleader in the game of life, bringing out the best in all of us.
