Jerry Charles

A woman who has cooked hundreds of meals for people all over the country passed away March 4. Jerry Charles, of Drummonds, served those meals in the Navy and later with Angel Food Ministries. Close friend Cheryl Bone said Charles touched many lives in her 71 years on this earth.  Bone and other friends wanted to pay tribute to the woman who cooked for people of all ages.
Charles attended Assembly of God churches. She cooked for Teen Challenge in Pensacola. She did all the meals at Lighthouse as they went from the old to new sanctuary.
For years, she cooked a homecooked meal to all who volunteered to sort food for AFM after they would sort food. This included the court ordered community service done by many. She would love on them and changed lives literally before our eyes.
“Tomorrow we will lay her body to rest with the services,” Bone said. “She is already dancing in Heaven. One of her favorite verses was where it says we will rise up with wings as eagles. She is flying today. Just not enough said about the true Servant of God who literally fed and cared for everyone she could and prayed for the others. Let me know.”
Charles, a homemaker, died March 4 at St. Francis Hospital-Bartlett. Services were held March 11 at Munford Funeral Home, Millington Chapel. Interment was held in West Tennessee Veterans Cemetery. Charles was the widow of David Leon Charles, and she was a member of Lighthouse Fellowship Assembly of God Church. She is survived by a daughter, Carolyn Charles; a son, David W. Charles (Dianet); sister, Carol J. Wilson; brothers, Gary Hunt and Johnnie Hunt; four grandchildren, Hannah, Jesse, Alexander, and Carmelita, and two great-grandchildren, Sabrina and Samantha.
