Jerri Lynn Young

February 26, 1949 ~ December 27, 2021 (age 72)


Jerri Young, 72, died Monday December 27th, 2021. Jerri was born and raised in Grand Prairie Texas and was a long time resident of New Orleans. She loved the city as her own and was passionate about its culture and heritage, enjoying all of its celebrations, cuisine, architecture and natural beauty. She settled in Bayou St John so she could enjoy being on the water and close to City Park where she could take advantage of all of its many festivals and activities. She was iconic, influential, both brave and tender hearted and will be terribly missed by the many people whose lives she touched. Her spirit will live on in the heart and soul of the city she loved and in the special friendships she forged throughout her life. She was preceded in death by her parents Jane and Troy Sproles, her sister Sandra Pitts and nephew Troy Pitts and Jerri’s beloved dog Lucki. She is survived by her loving partner Deborah Stewart, nephew Brad Pitts (Kim) along with her great nephews and nieces Miranda Phillips (Kevin), Cole, Cameron, Clayton Pitts and her cousins Dorlores Mance and Nancy Miller.
