She is preceded in death by her son, Eric Michael Nielsen; her mother Ruby Harrison Smith Tuzzolino; and father Ralph Lloyd Smith. Jerry raised her family, living in rural farmland east of Delano, while married to Howard Nielsen. She embraced cooking for a large group, which might be the 4H group, the summer harvest crew that helped Dad harvest the wheat crop or many gatherings. She would help grandpa with the butchering and wrapping process of animals we raised on the farm. She would sew and taught us girls to create lovely things with our hands. Besides the home activities, Jerry was a frequent volunteer in the community. She helped at the Well Baby Clinic at Righgrove, a 4H mom, served on the election board for many years and helped whenever needed for our church. While living at Lake San Marcos, Jerry became an avid tennis player. Jerry was very competitive and would burst with delight after beating as she would say, "the younger girls". While married to Harry, they had a wonderful opportunity to travel the world. Harry even wrote a book about his wife, titled The Travels of Jerry Smith. Mom was loved and is missed by her family and friends. www.bakersfield.com/obits
