Jerilyn Cairo (Holdsworth)
Jerilyn Dee “Jeri” Cairo, 76, of Kenosha, passed away on Tuesday, June 5, 2018.
Jeri was born on February 24, 1942, to John “Sharkey” and Leona (Nordbye) Holdsworth in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
She graduated from Kenosha High School and worked for many years as a certified nursing assistant at Rolling Hills Manor in Zion, Illinois, and also as a private duty CNA. After retiring, Jeri found her greatest joy in time spent with her family, especially her grandchildren. She had a love of music and an infectious laugh that will be missed.

Jeri was preceded in death by her parents, as well as her brother, Robert Holdsworth, and sister, Candy Schwartz.
