Jerry Alice Deahl
07/08/1930 - 12/09/2019
Jerry Alice was born on July 8, 1930, in Ft. Smith, Arkansas, to Clairisse Soulie’. Jerry grew up with two brothers, Pat, her twin Jean, and a sister Babe. She graduated from Ft. Smith High School in 1949 and went to work for F.W. Woolworth Company in Ft. Smith. It was there that she met her one and only George William Deahl, Sr. Jerry and George married on June 4, 1950, at the First Baptist Church in Ft. Smith, Arkansas. The young couple was only married eight days when George was transferred to a different Woolworth. This began their life of transfers and moves for the next 28 years. They settled in Lubbock in June of 1968 with their three children and found “home.” Jerry worked at Hemphill Wells for many years and later for Family Photo. After retirement, Jerry and George enjoyed their life together, traveling, becoming grandparents, and enjoying each other’s company. They loved each other dearly. Jerry was George’s support for almost 50 years before his death, October 8, 1999.
She was active in Trinity Church of Lubbock, where she and George attended, volunteering at the Wearhouse, Sunshine Girls, and visiting The Primetimers Sunday School class. Many friends were made, and it truly enriched her life. Jerry was a great Christian woman. Her greatest strength came from her Bible. She read it, relentlessly and learned something every time she read it. Jerry missed her husband terribly but now they are re-United!
Those left to miss are her, daughter, Becky Barnett and her husband, Marion; two sons, George W., and wife, Sylvia Deahl Jr.; and Charles Deahl and wife Pam; six grandchildren, Melissa Beal and husband, Adam; Hannah Deahl, Abigail Luby and husband, Stephen; Mallory Johnson and husband, Brandon; Chas Deahl, and Jane Deahl; four great-grandchildren, Ava Beal, Ty Johnson, Anna Luby, and Joseph Luby.
Our mama was a survivor! Her chains are gone, she has been set free!!
We will miss you, mama.
