Jerra Lynn of St. Thomas, passed away unexpectedly on April 22, 2022 from injuries after an accident at home earlier in the week, at the age of 73.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 53 years, Richard; by her daughters, Jennifer and Christine (Jason); by her grandchildren Julia and Ivy; by her siblings Lynda, Diane, and Richard; and by her many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She was predeceased by parents Edith and John Goatbe of Windsor, ON.

Jerra and her husband left city life 15 years ago to raise and breed alpacas on a small farm outside of Tillsonburg. In addition to meeting many other alpaca breeders at Alpaca Association events, she demonstrated a talent for animal handling and running the farm retail store.

Jerra had many endearing qualities, but most of all, was her giving and loving nature towards her family, friends and everyone that came to know her. Jerra's final act was to give the gift of life through organ donation.

Cremation has already taken place. A celebration of Jerra's life will be held at the Shawn Jackson Funeral Home, 31 Elgin Street, St. Thomas (519-631-0570). Details will be announced once confirmed. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Jerra's memory to your local Alzheimer Society.
