Jerrie Lea Croson Brees

Jerrie Lea and I met in 5th grade at Sam Houston. We grew up on the same street 3 blocks apart. We then went to Baker, Ray, and Del Mar together. I was honored to be in her wedding to Jay Brees from Carroll. Jerrie was a loyal, funny and extermely talented pianist. I so enjoyed hearing her accompany the Ray Choir and play mini concerts at the Del Mar Music Department. Sadly she left us all in 1995. She is greatly missed!!

I was saddened to hear about Jerrie Lea's death.  My parents were close friends with the Corson's and Jerrie and I were friends during our grade school days.  I still have some old photos of Jerry and I standing together as kids. I remember that Jerrie took piano lessons for years, and I remember my parents stopping by the Carson's to visit from time to time and Jerry played a few pieces for us.  After Jr. high I went my on way, as many teens do, however my parents remained friends with the Croson family as long as they lived.  It's not surprising that she excelled with her music.  It nice to read the tribut to here, I'm sure it is well deserved .
