Jerriann Deily


Mrs. Jerriann Deily, 65, of Cape Charles, died peacefully in her home on Thursday, Sept. 24, 2020, after her long battle with cancer. She was born Nov. 19, 1954, in Albany, N.Y., a daughter of the late Ralph and Jerry Deagetis. She is survived by her loving husband, Jonathan Deily; her daughter, Kate Streeter (Greg); as well as stepchildren, Caitlin Gibson (Alex), Evan and Nathaniel Deily (Susana); grandchildren, Brian, Caroline, Olivia, Owen, Wes, Jake, Foster, and Zeke; and her cousin, Elizabeth Forker (Chris).

Jerri’s generosity, selflessness, and care for others was second to none. Nothing made her happier than making others happy. She left a forever mark on all who have had the privilege of knowing her. She especially loved to travel with her husband and family, visiting places like Peru, Spain, Iceland, and Italy, just to name a few.

She has requested that there be no services as she would like everyone’s last memory of her to be one they shared together. If you wish to honor Jerri, you are encouraged to sit around your table with family and friends and share memories of the times you spent together.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kiptopeke Elementary School, 24023 Fairview Road, Cape Charles, VA 23310, in memory of Jerri A. Deily. Letters and/or cards of sympathy can be mailed to 2878 Butlers Bluff Drive, Cape Charles, VA 23310.
