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.
