Obituary for Donald Jerry Stripling

Funeral services for Donald Jerry Stripling, age 76 of Cordele, will be held at 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, January 8, 2019 in the chapel of Rainey Family Funeral Services with burial to follow at Sunnyside Cemetery. The family will receive friends prior to the service Tuesday beginning at 3:00 p.m. at the funeral home. Jerry passed away Sunday, January 6, 2019 at his residence. He was born in Cordele and was the son of the late Henry Donald Stripling and Ruby Bowen Stripling. He was also preceded in death by his wife, Bettye Dean Stripling and a sister, Jane Johnson. He proudly served his county in the United States Army. Jerry retired from Bell South Telephone Company as a supervisor after 37 years of service and was an active member of Midway Methodist Church. He enjoyed wood working, deer hunting and traveling. He also loved square dancing but his biggest love was his family and spending time with them at their cabin or better known as "Dadooville." Jerry is survived by two daughters and their husbands, Donna and Jerome Deal of Cordele and Lisa and Alan Hunter of Abbeville; his fiancée, Gloria Gilmer of Cordele; three grandchildren, Jon David Deal, Hayley Franks and Chase Hunter; sisters-in-law and their husbands, Gail and Woody Hardison and Joy and Johnny Fowler, all of Warner Robins; brother-in-law and his wife, Lamar and Ingrid Dean of Cordele; nephews and nieces, Jim and Shari Dean, Barrett and Gina Johnson, Dean Mitchell, Stephanie Dean, and Leslie and Chris Godfrey; and great-niece, Emma Godfrey; and great-nephews Will Dean, Josh Dean and Briggs Johnson. Flowers will be accepted but memorials to the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 7262, Hillsborough, NJ 08844 or online @www.americancancerfund.org would please the family.
