Jerri Bond Chesnut, 68, wife of John Chesnut, of Greenville, passed away Tuesday, November 28, 2017.

Jerri understood that life is a precious gift. Jerri, herself, was a precious gift and a blessing to all who knew her.

Jerri was born in Kinston, NC. She grew up near Chadds Ford, PA, moved to Spartanburg, SC with her husband in 1978, and then moved to Greenville in 2002.

A graduate of Bryn Mawr College, Jerri completed her M.A. degree in Music History at Bryn Mawr. Jerri spent an unforgettable summer traveling around the U.K., Europe, Greece and Turkey.

In her youth, she managed bookstores, did fund-raising for her church, and was a singer-dancer in a dinner theater in Kennet Square, PA.

For a number of years, Jerri was elected to serve on the administrative board of her church in Spartanburg; she conducted church services for years, worked in areas of outreach to the community as well, and sang solos, from time to time.

Jerri loved the natural beauty of the area surrounding her adopted home, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Jerri is survived by her husband of forty years, John.
