Jeri Reid, 69, of Mt. Pleasant, formerly of Deerfield Beach, FL Avon and Bettsville, OH, passed away Sun-day, April 24, 2016, at home after a long, courageous and inspirational battle with cancer. She ended her life as she lived it: always rising to any challenge with a positive attitude, steely determination, mental strength, intense focus and a keen sense of humor. Her legacy will live on in those she touched through-out her life.
Cremation has taken place and a service celebrating her life will be held at 3 PM Saturday, April 30, at First Church of Christ, 1610 E. Broadway, Mt. Pleasant, with Pastor Jason Wilson officiating.
In lieu of flowers, those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider the Jeri Reid Memorial Fund, 2565-B East Gate Ave., Mt. Pleasant, MI 48858, or envelopes will be available at the church or the Charles R. Lux Family Funeral Home.
Jeri was born April 9, 1947, in Bettsville, OH, daughter of the late Carlos Robert and Betty Jane (Stevens) Reid. She was preceded in death by her parents and her beloved brother, Robert Donald Reid.
An LPGA T&CP member, Jeri was most recently a golf and tennis instructor at CMU. She spent many years as a Club Professional at several Golf Courses in Florida, Michigan, and Ohio, and owned golf schools in each of those states. Her passion for teaching and lecturing on the mental game of golf was eclipsed only by her overwhelming desire to help her students succeed in all aspects of their lives. In addition, Jeri owned and operated Creative Business Associates, Inc., taught 6th grade in Ohio, and was a published author of two poetry books and numerous business and golf magazine/periodical articles. Jeri was a natural, gifted and versatile athlete who excelled in almost any sport she chose. She loved golf, tennis, basketball, kayaking, dancing, music, books, learning, solving problems, shoveling snow with Shar, her cat McGill, and the sun, but above all she loved helping others.
Jeri is survived by her cherished friend, Randi Wynne-Parry of Mt. Pleasant; her brother Ron Reid of Florida; several nieces and nephews; dear friends Peggy Clark and Stephanie Snakovsky, both of Ohio; Marcia Mackey of Rosebush; and many beloved students and friends—all of whom she felt privileged to have known.
