Mary Elizabeth Jerome, 60

Mary Elizabeth Jerome, 60, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021, at her home in Grand Forks, N.D.
She was born in Hallock, Minn., to Leonard and Rosalyn (Gardner) Jerome and was the seventh of 10 children. Mary grew up in rural Humboldt, Minn., and graduated from Humboldt-St. Vincent Public High School in 1979. She was married and had one daughter, Alison.
Mary spent the majority of her life in Grand Forks and Fargo, N.D. She had a successful career in real estate, assisting and helping to grow multiple title businesses; she was often called out for her incredible work ethic and ability to solve a problem. Mary eventually moved into finance and was recently working with Huntington as a mortgage processor.
Outside of work, Mary enjoyed spending time with friends and family. She was always up for adventures with her dear friend, Ann-Marie, or sister, Kathy, which led to places like Montana, Mexico, Arizona, Canada, and more than one occasional trip to the casino. She especially valued time with her daughter, Alison, and granddaughter, Caitlin – they were the light of her life.
Anyone that knew Mary would certainly remember her distinct laugh, smile and ability to light up a room with witty comments and banter. She will be dearly missed.
Mary leaves behind: one daughter, Alison (Tom) Hennes, Cavalier, N.D.; granddaughter, Caitlin Johnson; siblings: Renee (Wayne) Stewart, Lancaster, Minn., Leonard Jerome, Oregon, Lee Jerome, Aurora, Ill., Bill (Deb) Jerome, Grand Forks, Kathy Triechel (Murray Jones), Winnipeg, Canada, Tony Jerome, San Mateo, Calif., Martin (Mike Orum) Jerome, Atlanta, Ga.; and many nieces and nephews.
In honor of her wishes, no services will be held; however, those wanting to remember Mary may make a donation in her name to The Arthritis Foundation.
