Jerrie Anne Aune, age 86, of Cambridge, formerly of Braham, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at Abbott NW Hospital.
Jerrie was born January 18, 1934 to John “Pete” and Ruth (Klemz) Gustafson in Braham, Minnesota. She lived in Braham all her life where she worked with her family at the Park Café. She also worked at Schwarten Drugstore, and as an office administrator for the Braham School’s Superintendent. As a clarinetist in the Braham High School band, she met her future husband and ‘band director’ Herman Aune. They began their relationship after graduation. They were married one year later on June 6, 1953 at Braham Evangelical Lutheran church where she was a life-long member.
She was known throughout the community as a great cook with the gift of hospitality. Many parties were hosted in their family home where Jerrie’s Swedish tea ring and many other dishes became favorites. She was an excellent seamstress, and had a great talent for decorating.
In 2000, Herman and Jerrie moved into the GracePoint community in Cambridge.
Jerrie was a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother. She had endless love for her family, and a servant heart that brought her wherever her family was. She and Herman would go anywhere to celebrate life events and created countless memories.
