Obituary for Jerri Shuler

Jearldean “Jerri” (Moore) Shuler, 91, of Dallas, Texas (formerly of Heavener) was born Dec. 19, 1931 in Heavener to Jack and Mae (Mead) Moore and passed from this life Sept. 14, 2023 in Dallas, Texas.

Funeral service is 2 p.m. Saturday at the First Baptist Church in Heavener with Denton Mead officiating. Burial will follow in the Heavener Memorial Park, under the direction of Dowden-Roberts Funeral Home in Heavener.  

Jerri and Jim married the love of their life in 1949 and were happily married for 58 years. She was a very accomplished person. First as a mother of three all-sports, trophy winning, athletic boys, this kept Jim and her attending and involved with many sports events. Jerri’s first paid profession was as a cosmetologist along with her older sister, Royal, and this was not her last.

At the same time, Jerri maintained a great home environment.  She was a great cook, a spotless housekeeper, and had a beautiful yard with an abundance of flowers. Jerri loved being with her large family, relatives, and with her friends, especially after her grandchildren were born. She always made time for them.  Jerri was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved her.     

Jerri is survived by her three sons, all of Dallas, Texas Barry Edward Shuler, Garry Lee Shuler and Jerry Michael “Mickey” Shuler and wife Sharrah; two sisters Jana (Moore) Baker of Heavener and Donna (Moore) Johnston of Poteau; nine grandchildren Justin Chace Shuler, Tiffani Cain, Tara Kennedy, Cole Shuler, Austin Shuler, Brooke Shuler, Michael Ryan Shuler, Brittani Kasey and Terrah Lozano; 10 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, other loved ones, and a host of friends.

Shuler; her brother and spouse Haskell and Cardelia Moore; her sisters and spouses Royal (Moore) and Don Wade, Fannie (Moore) Bullock, Ruby Nell (Moore) and Jay Muse, Joan (Moore) Breeding; two brothers-in-law, Johnny Baker and Jerry Johnston.
