BURLINGTON — Jerry Ann St. John Lynch, Osage City, died Sunday, Dec. 27, 2020, at Life Care Center, Burlington. She was 80.

She was born July 24, 1940, in Randall, the 10th child of Pearl St. John Sr., and Orlena (Bailey) St. John. Jerry was named after Orlena’s parents, Jerry Bailey and Mary Ann (Taylor) Bailey. She grew up in Randall, with a population of 80, and had many friends there.

After graduating high school, she went to Oklahoma and worked driving a truck during a wheat harvest. She then moved back to Randall and worked in a cafe in Beloit, where she met her first husband, Charlie Blundon. They moved to Topeka and lived there until Charlie passed away.

During their retirement years, they resided in Osage City. After Gale passed away, Jerry lived in Lebo for a short time and then moved back to the home, in Osage City. She remained there until she could no longer live on her own and resided in a care facility, in Burlington.
