Jeanette Marie Yerkes

April 7, 1929 — June 23, 2023

Sellersville

Jeanette Marie Yerkes (Winkler), 94, of Sellersville, passed away surrounded by her family on June 23rd, 2023, at the Quakertown Center. Born in Spinnerstown, she was the daughter of the late Horace Winkler and the late Marie Winkler (Rosenberger). 

Jeanette’s greatest pleasure in life was spending time with and caring for her family.  She grew up on a farm with many siblings which family credits for her strong spirit and work ethic. She valued maintaining her independence into her early 90s. Jeanette quickly became known as Gram to all who met her. She was often found supporting her grandchildren and great-grandchildren at dance shows, recitals & competitions as well as baseball and soccer games and tournaments. A highlight was once joining them on stage for a performance of the annual Christmas Show. For many years she enjoyed traveling frequently to California and Arizona to visit family. Gram was a dedicated fundraiser for the National MS Society and served on the MS Walk Planning Committee.    

Jeanette will be dearly missed by her children, Tink Lindsay and Lucky Yerkes; her grandchildren, Jamie Lindsay, Josh Yerkes, Tanner Lindsay, Tara Argue (Bryan), Tia Harris (Ed), Piper Yerkes, and Jordan Yerkes; her great-grandchildren, Chayse, Paityn, Charlotte, Blake, Lukas, Emersyn, Silas, Presley, Tyler, and Tucker; her siblings, Jimmy Winkler (Adele), Mary Hess, and Artis Wolfinger; along with many nieces and nephews. Jeanette was predeceased by her siblings, Naomi Winkler, Mose Winkler, Patricia Gerhart, Snib Winkler, Pete Winkler, and Audrey Brady.
