At St. Peter’s, Jeanie has volunteered for the Angels in the Garden Committee and served on the Lift Us to the Joy Divine Planning Committee.

Jerry and his wife Cathie are both native St. Louisans. They have been married 49 years and have two grown children: Jay and his wife, Carrie, and their children, Hugo and Gwendolyn, live in Town and Country; and Monica lives in Brooklyn, NY. Jerry worked at McDonnell Douglas and Boeing for 39 years as a Metallurgical Engineer doing mainly research and development work until retirement in 2005. After “retiring”, Jerry and Cathie rehabbed several buildings for rental. They sold those and are now re-retired and enjoy watching their grandkids one day a week and having more time to do other things, including the Better Marriages organization. Jerry and Cathie joined St. Peter’s in 2013 after their previous church closed. When they first visited St. Peter’s, they felt welcomed and found the music to be very spiritual. Jerry enjoys participation in many St. Peter’s activities—Searching for God in the Daily News, Rector’s Forums, Sunday breakfasts, St. Peter’s Cares, outreach activities, and Men’s Breakfast. Jerry had the pleasure of going with the youth mission trip to Fort Defiance, AZ in 2016. He has also “chaperoned” some of the Woman’s Guild activities. St. Peter’s has become an integral part of their lives.
