May 31, 1963 October 25, 2019
There are condolences waiting approval on JERRI's Tribute wall

Jerri Lynn Reser (West) lost her hard fought battle with cancer in the early morning of Friday, October 25th, 2019 in Springfield, MO. Her friends and family were by her side in the end.
Jerri was born on May 31st, 1963 to Joe and Libby West of Republic, MO. She is preceded in death by her mother (Libby) and father (Joe). Jerri is survived by her husband Robert (Robbie) Reser, daughter Roby Lynn Reser-Crow (Melissa), 2 grandchildren Anna Arnold and Camden Reser-Crow, her 3 sisters Barbie (Ellis) Luttrull, Mindy (Bart) Kelley, and Marti (Stacy) Clark, in-laws Keith and Kathy Reser, and brother-in-law Ron Reser, as well as several nieces, nephews, and close friends.
The union between Robbie and Jerri was extraordinary. They met in middle school, dated through-out their time at Republic High School, and were married for 39 years. They exemplified true love all the way to the end.
Jerri also had an extremely special bond with her daughter, Roby Lynn. Despite the physical distance between them, Roby Lynn and Jerri were a dynamic pair. Their constant communication and support of each other helped to keep their relationship strong. They truly were best friends.
“The Sisters,” as they are lovingly referred to, were Jerri’s strongest support system. Barbie, Mindy, and Marti’s support never wavered. The sisterhood of these 4 is unbreakable. Whether they were spending time together at a feisty Black Friday shopping extravaganza or simply helping each other take care of their flowers, these 3 ensured that their big sister was cared for and comfortable all the way to the end.
Jerri had a 2nd family at Reynolds American where she worked for 23 years. The support of her work family helped her to focus on staying healthy. She will be greatly missed by all those whose lives she impacted at Reynolds American.
Jerri cared so deeply for all of those in her life and the impact that she had on those around her will be felt for generations to come. Her spunk, honesty, loyalty, and authentic nature is what drew people to Jerri. You could always count on her to make the mundane a fun event; whether it was hollering through a paper towel roll or dancing down the isles at Wal-Mart, Jerri made life a fun journey.
With a strong support system of family and friends, Jerri was able to beat the odds for 5 years. She was a mother, a wife, a sister, a grandma, a daughter, an aunt, and most of all, a fighter.
Love You, Mean It Mama Jerri. We are going to miss you so much.
A visitation will be held on Monday, October 28, from 6 to 8 P.M. at Meadors Funeral Home in Republic. In lieu of flowers, the family request that memorial contributions be made to Care to Learn.
