Geraldine "Jerri" Kay Izzo was a loving wife, mother, grandmother,
sister and friend. She left this world suddenly on Jan. 6, 2024 at age
She was born to Jess and Alice Fisher in December 1946 in Kingman. After
graduating high school and while working at A&W she met and married Gabe
(Junior); together they had two sons: Gabe (Tracy) and Jess (JB).
With the love and support of Gabe, Jerri completed her bachelor's degree
at Northern Arizonia University and began teaching in Salome.. After two
years, she went back to school over the summertime to complete a
master's degree in education from NAU. Jerri went on to teach for 29
years at Salome Elementary before retiring from Arizona. Her love of
education did not stop there, she continued teaching at elementary
schools in Blythe California for an additional 9.5 years.
After fully retiring, Jerri spent her time traveling, sewing, fishing,
playing cards and board games with friends and family. Jerri lived life
to the fullest and was always willing to go anywhere and do anything
with her family. She had an uncanny ability to find happiness in every
day and loved everyone without judgment. Her smile and kindness warmed
hearts and shaped lives. She will forever be remembered by everyone who
knew her. Jerri is survived by her husband Gabe; sons Tracy and Jess;
and many grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
Jerri asked that no formal services be held for her and that everyone
celebrate her life in their own way. In lieu of flowers, she would want
you to donate to local elementary schools in your area.
