WINTERVILLE - Mr. Jerry Dale Law, 69, passed away on Friday, November 13, 2015 at his home.

A Celebration of his life will be held on Thursday at 11 AM at St. James United Methodist with the Rev. Johnny Branch officiating. A private burial will occur at a later date.

A native of Mississippi, Jerry had been a resident of Pitt County since 1964 when he attended East Carolina University. He was a veteran of the United States Army and later completed his degree from East Carolina University graduating in 1969. For more than 42 years, Jerry worked as a program consultant for the North Carolina Division of Medical Assistance, retiring in 2014. He was also awarded the Order of the Long Leaf Pine Award for his dedicated service to the State of North Carolina. In addition, Jerry was a tremendous advocate for the Pitt County Girls Softball League. He served on the Board of Directors, the Ethics Committee and later as President of the league. Jerry also coached for a number of years and was fortunate to be one of the coaches to lead the League's first State Championship for the 13-15s (his daughter, Sara's team) in 1994. The facility that was being developed for the Pitt County Girls Softball League soon was named the Sara A. Law Softball Complex in memory of the unexpected loss of his daughter, Sara Anne Law, in 1995. Jerry also had attended St. James United Methodist Church.

In addition to his daughter Sara, Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Kermit and Juanita Drane Law, and a brother, Jimmie Drane Law.

He is survived by: wife of 48 years, Anne Wallace Law; daughters, Deborah L. Hunt and husband, Robert, and Susan L. Sieber and husband, Fred; grandchildren, Olivia and Caroline Hunt, all of Winterville; sister, Betty Andrews and husband, Andy, and Anita Law, all of Greenville; niece, Karen Seagriff and husband, Bill, of Winterville; and nephew, Al Andrews of Greenville.
