Lucy Geraldine “Jerry” Brunow Dozier, age 97, went home to her Father in Heaven on April 28, 2018. She was a loving mother and wife, a faithful servant of the Lord, and generous to all she knew.

Jerry, a life-long resident of Port Arthur, Texas was born on August 10, 1920 to Johnnie Lake Brown Brunow and Gunther Harry Brunow. Jerry married Harold “Buss” Dozier, April 15, 1938. They had two sons, Harold W. Dozier and Thomas H. Dozier. Their sons married Sondra Kornegay and Pamela Byrd, respectively, and they gave her six grandchildren: Matthew Dozier and Marissa Eby; Melissa Meibos, Mark Dozier, Amy Noel, and James Dozier. She had 14 great-grandchildren; Tyler, Ella, and Avery Dozier; Chloe and Luke Eby; Benjamin and Katelyn Meibos; Austin Dozier; Keith, Jacob, Michael, Jefferson, and Daniel Noel; and Abigale Dozier.

Jerry was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. When the boys grew up and left home, Jerry developed a new talent. She began attending Lamar University and became a professional artist. She was a lifetime member of the Texas Artist Museum, Gold Coast Fine Arts Association, Port Arthur Art Association, Museum of the Gulf Coast, Port Arthur Little Theater, and Port Arthur Historical Society.
