Jeraldine “Jerry” Warren Curtis

February 9, 1925 ~ July 4, 2013

Jeraldine O. “Jerry” Warren Curtis, 88, of Wenatchee, WA and a Wenatchee Valley resident for over 55 years, passed away at her home on Thursday, July 4, 2013, following a sudden illness. She was born on February 9, 1925, at Los Angeles, CA, daughter of the late Cornelius A. “Kay” and Lillian Florence (Fellows) Lee. She was raised to an early age in Los Angeles, prior to moving with her family to make their home in Pateros, Manson and the Chelan areas. In 1938, they moved to Cashmere, where she attended junior high and high school. She graduated from Cashmere High School with the Class of 1943. She met Kenneth Warren in Cashmere and they were married in 1944. To this union, there were four children born. They moved to Ballard, WA in 1950, where they made their home until returning to Cashmere in 1956. She began working in the area fruit sheds as a Fruit Packer in 1959, and in the mid 1960’s, she moved to make her home in Monitor. She moved to her current home in Wenatchee in 1973. She continued her seasonal fruit packing jobs for several years. Jerry was a former member of the Cashmere Fireman’s Auxiliary, known as the “Battleaxes”. She was a league bowler and played on the Schneider’s Bowling Team for many years. She was especially fond of animals, especially cats, dogs and birds. She loved hosting her family’s holidays and was known as the hub of her family.

She is survived by four children, Christine L. “Chris” Smith of Arlington, WA, Gali L. “Rusty” and Harold Collins of Cashmere, WA, Sherri L. and Mike Sines of Cashmere, WA, and Scott K. Warren and longtime companion, Penni Griggs of Orondo, WA; her sister-in-law, Wilma Lee “Willie” Lee of Hillsboro, OR; six grandchildren, Rocky Smith of Tonasket, WA, Michelle Smith of Arlington, WA, Roxanne Collins of East Wenatchee, WA, Chad Collins of East Wenatchee, WA, Nikki Ramirez of Cashmere, WA and Erin Brophy of Troy, ID; nine great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; and one brother, Cornelius Albert “Al” Lee.
