Marjorie Hernandez Lau
March 25, 1927 - November 15, 2007
Jeri Lau, loving wife of Dr. Michael W Lau, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday the fifteenth of November. She is survived by her husband and three children. Jeri was the daughter of Clinton Nestelle Hernandez and Marjorie Francis Hernandez. She grew up in Yonkers, New York where she attended the Halsted School. Her family moved to Oakridge Tennessee in 1945, and Jeri attended Oakridge High School where she was a member of the school's first graduating class. Jeri graduated from Colby College, now called Colby Sawyer College in New Hampshire.
Jeri loved the outdoors and sailing. She spent her summers with her family on northern Lake George in the Adirondacks. Jeri was a wonderful artist and an educator. She taught art to children of all ages at a number of institutions including the USC Reading Center and Saint James Episcopal School. With her creative and kind way, she touched the lives of countless students and their families. Jeri also worked for many years as a volunteer at the Good Samaritan Hospital gift shop.
Jeri brought an unwavering positive outlook to life which was infectious. Generously, she made her house a home for many, and is remembered as a second mother by many of her children's friends. Jeri's passing has left a void for anyone who had the good fortune to have known her.
