Tributes for

Ary, Jerrie C.

May 8, 1945 - April 26, 2016...
Jerrie Caroline Marino Ary, born of John and Grace Marino in New York, she moved to California as a toddler. One of the most beautiful, loving and elegant women gifted to this world, has gently passed from this earthly plane to rest in Heaven. She was an endless fountain of accepting love?a devout woman, giving at times all that she had and more. Graduating from UCLA, she worked for several years as a Dental Assistant, before devoting her life to motherhood. She was a great friend to many and a philanthropist in her local community, always stylish and classy, even at the beach in California or at a picnic and hiking in the forests of Montana, where her husband's family hailed. Jerrie was an amazing and inspirational mother, who encouraged her children to truly be themselves and follow their dreams. A pure hearted and giving wife, married for 47 years to her perfect match, a couple that truly ­­complemented each other, they were always smiling and keeping each other laughing, blessed to have found each other at age 19, sharing so much. Jerrie had been diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy about 9 years ago, passing with the onset of the disease, in Colorado Springs. Survived by her husband, Dick; her son, Steven, and his wife, Reneé and their son, Gracen; and daughter, Michelle. She will truly be missed by all of those who knew her and may come to know of her.
