Jeri Lynn (Palladino) Dobos

October 17, 1972 — February 23, 2021


Jeri Lynn Dobos (Palladino), passed away at the age of 48 on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021.

She loved taking care of her family, whether that meant being a shoulder for them to cry on or chewing them out whenever she felt they needed it. Some of her favorite things were binge watching shows in a few days, drinking Tim Horton’s every day, going on mini shopping sprees on Amazon, babysitting her grandkids, attending school/sporting events and making sure her family was well fed with perfectly crafted home-cooked meals. Jeri had an amazing laugh that could move mountains and was so infectious that it could make everyone else laugh along with her. Along with her laugh came with a perfect smile that was equally contagious and followed up with a heart as big as they come. Jeri was fun loving, family-oriented, had a huge personality, friend to many, brutally honest, kind, lovable, protective, proud, reliable, selfless, strong, supportive, thoughtful and an overall joy to be around. She will be forever missed.

Jeri is survived by her husband, Ronald “Jeff” Dobos; children, Kristen Good, Michele Dobos, and Brandon Dobos; grandchildren, Legend Mercurio, Syncere Gibson, Ameliah Nelson, Dallas Nelson, and Quinton Dobos; mother, Edith Palladino (Albert Roach); sister, Kathy Schoell, and Angie Runyon; brothers, Nick, Tony, and Mike Palladino Sr.; special friends, Anissa James, Allie Manzo, Destiny Armstrong, Renee Mason, and Jackie Loudermilk; and many special loving cousins, nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by Jerry Palladino, Ricci Martin, Belinda Good, Ronald William Dobos, and Leigh Ann Eddy.
