Kerri, born in Lloydminster on March 5, was the youngest of Perry and Mayme’s 9 children.  When she was 14, she moved to Innisfail to live with her brother, George, and family and did the rest of her schooling there.  Kerri was always outgoing and showed leadership qualities at a young age.  After completing high school, she decided on a career with The Royal Bank.  She worked her way up to Bank Manager and was well respected by her clients in Innisfail, Olds, Red Deer and Consort.  She was a dedicated member of Branch 104, Innisfail Legion, serving on the Board for several years.  She was a loving, caring hockey, and dance Mom. Doing all she could to make sure her children had a solid upbringing.
