Evangelist-Missionary Jerrie Ann Yancey, 67, passed away on Sunday, April 5, 2020, at Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka, KS. She was born on July 25, 1952, in Moberly, MO. She graduated from Penn Foster University, where she received her bachelor’s degree. Before passing, she worked as a nurse at Pearlie Mae’s Compassion and Care, where she soon planned to retire.
She is survived by her daughter Lisa Price-Whetstone (Stephone), 11 grandchildren: Brandi Price-Dukes, Tiffany Price-Dukes, Jonathon Price-Dukes, Matthew Price-Dukes, Joshua Price-Dukes, Ryan Price-Dukes, Courtney Price-Dukes, Dequan Hawkins, Myra Price, Jerrie Price, Jessica Price, and a host of many great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her grandmother Hilda L. Yancey, mother Jill Harris, stepfather Homer Harris, husband Everett Eugene Hart and son Myron Price.
She was a devoted mother and grandmother. She was known for her unapologetic love for the Lord. She served as the Senior Mother at Wonderful Works Deliverance Center COGIC (Church of God in Christ), where her style was unmatched. To her core, she was a prayer warrior. No matter the situation or time, she was always there to provide encouragement, love, and support. Because of her strong faith for the COGIC faith, she enjoyed traveling to different COGIC conferences throughout the year. At church, she also held the title of Program Director over Works Recovery. Works Recovery is a program that allowed her to help many people recover from obstacles ranging from A-Z. This year, she celebrated 36 years of sobriety. She would always say to trust God and keep God first. She fulfilled her purpose for the Lord and as she would say, “It is well with my soul.”
She was very passionate about her family. On holidays, she was persistent about gathering the family together for big dinners. Her cooking will forever be irreplaceable in the hearts of her daughter and grandchildren. No matter the occasion, she made sure to extend an invitation to everyone and make sure that they felt welcomed. She truly had a servant’s heart and attitude.
She was resilient. Despite the hardships that she faced in the past, she managed to re-write her story. She allowed herself to use her story to help others fight through similar obstacles. She wanted to help develop others into the person that God created them to be.
Through many health issues, she continued to fight. That fighting spirit is one that will always be remembered. Her legacy is one that will be carried on for many generations to come. Her memory will forever live on in the hearts of the many that loved her.
