Lilly Jolie Berry, age 7 of Jackson passed away Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at Cardinal Glennon in St. Louis.
She was born March 23, 2010, in Cape Girardeau, daughter of Jobi L. and Stella Wells Berry.

Lilly was looking forward to being a second grader at Orchard Elementary School in Jackson. She enjoyed almost everything other seven-year-old girls like to do; playing softball; dancing; riding her bike; being outside; singing; writing (she had actually started a book;) and spending time with her family. Lilly made friends easily and had an endearing spirit. She was a generous little gal, twice donating her beautiful red hair within the past three years.
Loving survivors include her parents, Jobi and Stella Berry of Jackson; a brother, Joshua and a sister, Riley both of Jackson; paternal grandparents, Beverly (David) Felter of Benton, Missouri and Donald Berry of Greenfield, Missouri; maternal grandmother, Sylvia (the late James) Crader of Grassy, Missouri; and paternal great-grandmother, Madolyn Hahn of Jonesboro, Arkansas.
The visitation will be from 1-5 p.m. Sunday, June 11, 2017 at chapel A of McCombs Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Jackson.
The funeral service will be at 1 p.m. Monday, June 12, 2017 at Cape County Cowboy Church in Oak Ridge with the Rev. Jim Matthews officiating.
The family suggests that contributions be made to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Jackson R-2 School Foundation or Jackson Girls Softball League.

    I am so deeply sorry for the loss of Lilly. I am Gracie Hugfman’s step- grandmother. I metLilly one time when I took Gracie to her spring concert. Gracie and Lilly hugged each other so tight. I took their px together. I could tell that Lilly was a special child. Gracie will miss her so much. May God’s angels surround you with their love and protection during this very sad time and also for future days.

    My heart is broken for you and your family. I can’t and do not want to imagine going through this unfair heartbreak. My daughter Lilly is 9 and she rode the bus with your Lilly. I remember the day she met her. She was so excited because she finally had a friend (a sweet little friend is how she described her) to talk to on that bus she dreaded riding. Your Lilly gave her something to look forward to and I wish they would have been able to have more time together than just to and from school. You all are in our prayers. Sarah Holshouser, Lilly Daugherty and Chad Hileman

    Jobi, Stella, Josh, Riley, Lilly was such a beautiful little girl. All of you were here at my house just a few weeks ago.
    Lilly and the kids were running and playing all over the yard. I still can’t believe she isn’t with us any longer. So sad. Love you all, Uncle Robert Berry
