Jerry grew up in Colorado: Canon City, Colorado Springs and Denver, and received her Associate of Arts degree from Colorado College. She had a part-time career as a model and film editor, and her pre-med training facilitated her early work as a “stewardess” on Braniff Airways, where she met her husband of 74 years, Captain Bill Dameron. After several moves she raised her two children mostly in Atlanta before Bill and Jerry moved to Columbia to be near their daughter in 1987.



For nearly 65 years Jerry was an active and knowledgeable member and leader of her local Episcopal church altar guild. Using her training once again she was a Nurse’s Aide for the American Red Cross for nearly a decade and enjoyed working for Literacy Action in the inner city (Atlanta) and helping teach English as a second language. At Still Hopes Episcopal Retirement Community in Columbia she was active for over 20 years in the Altar Guild and helping in the library.



Jerry was devoted to Bill, who passed away in 2015. She also helped guide through life her two children, Bill Dameron of Portland Oregon and Linda Dameron of Monument Colorado, as well as three grandchildren: Phoebe Dameron, Danville, CA, Leslie Lowe, Florence, S.C., and Lanny Correll, Richmond VA. She also leaves behind four great-grandchildren.



A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm Monday, March 27 at The Chapel of the Holy Spirit at Still Hopes Episcopal Retirement Community in Columbia, S.C.



Donations in memory of Jerry may be made to the Still Hopes Residents Assistance Fund, Still Hopes Episcopal Retirement Community, One Still Hopes Drive, West Columbia S.C. 29169 (https://www.stillhopes.org/donate).
