Andrew Jerry Woods was born on March 30, 1948 to Albert and Mary Jean Woods. He was the fourth of eight children. Jerry as he was affectionately known was raised on the family ranch on Graveyard Creek, Hathaway, Montana. Jerry attended Rosebud Schools and was always the schools number one fan. As an adult, Jerry worked a variety of jobs; farming, digging water wells, fencing, and for the Rosebud County Cemetery. Due to health issues, Jerry spent several years in the Lewistown Care Center.
Jerry enjoyed the time he spent with his friends and family. At Rosebud, he was a permanent fixture at every special occasion. His voice was one of the loudest at the sporting events as he cheered on the Rosebud Wranglers, especially the teams that had his siblings, nephews, or nieces on the roster. Jerry enjoyed being outdoors, hunting, fencing, driving his truck, and was fascinated with airplanes, and treasured airplane magazines.
Although Jerry was close with his siblings, he had a very special bond and affection with his nephews and nieces. Uncle Jerry was kind to each of them, had special nicknames that he teased some of them with, and always remembered their birthdays and Christmas. He is loved by all of them.
Jerry is survived by his sisters, Anna Todoroff, and Winona Wise; brothers, William (Sonja), Matthew (Vicky), Michael (Darla); nieces, Jeanie, Donna, Amy, Amber, and Miranda; nephews: Pete, Michael, Jay, Tim, Joel, Jim, Dusty, Matt, and Maxwell.
Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Mary Jean; brothers, Frank and Albert; and niece, Catherine. Memorials may be made to Rosebud School, or the charity of one’s choice.
