  1. Prayers for Kerry and the family. She is now With The Lord Our Savior. I have known Kerry for many years. She was the BEST baker in town. She did my girls Wedding cake and Chocolate Covered Strawberries and made many cakes for different occasions. Kerry was a great lady. I have talked to her when she moved in the Dallas area, enjoyed talking to her. She will be missed.

  2. Our family will sure miss Kerry! She was our “cake lady” for so many years and such a sweet friend. I will miss her laugh and her voice. Prayers for her family.

  3. It was such a pleasure taking care of while you live at the nursing home. My prayers go out to your family.

  4. So sorry to hear of her passing. I had heard she was ill some time back. She was a wonderfully creative baker who was not afraid to try new things or any possible design for a special cake that you needed. I miss her talent. My condolences to her family and all who knew her. RIP.

  5. Kerry had such a gift for baking and decorating cakes. And she always had time for a visit and a laugh!
