Jerri Lynn was born November 1st, 1956, in Effingham to her parents Harold and Catherine (Meyer) Thoele.  She married Doug Boles on Oct 26, 2002.  Jerri Lynn was an incredibly hard working mother, provider and family member.  Early on despite the daily challenges of parenthood, she always tried to brighten other people’s day and to teach her family to always look on the bright side of things.  Over the years, she worked in the hospitality, hotel and restaurant industry at many companies in the Indianapolis area and had developed long lasting relationships with her customers who often exclusively requested her as their Server or their “get things done” person.  Until recently she was employed at Bright Point in Indianapolis. She was always quick to serve anyone in need; she showed loving compassion and was hospitable with excellent cooking and camaraderie. She loved riding their motorcycles, doing the daily crossword puzzles and being with all of her grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband Doug, daughter Melissa Ward, sons Matthew Ward (special friend Karen), Michael (wife, Beth) Ward. Grandchildren:  Brooklyn Woodall, Ashley Ward, Allen Ward, Caleb Ward, Kaitlyn Ward and Nathan Ward.  Sisters: Debbie (Richard) Aumiller, Judy (Kip) Johnson, Beth Thoele. Brothers: Steve (Ellen) Thoele, Kevin (Sandy) Thoele, Randy (Amy) Thoele and nineteen nieces and nephews.
