Jessie Lue (Perry) Kearney 94 returned to Gods loving arms on March 1, 2021 beloved wife of the late "Early Bird" Kearney. She was born in Warrenton, NC and has resided in Passaic over 60 years She was an Assistant Nurse at Hamilton Plaza Nursing Home Passaic for over 30 years retiring in 1991. She loved to watch basketball and football and talk about the years she played basketball in her younger years and she said she was good too. She also loved hanging out with her friends on Quincy Street that was the party house and lots of cookouts and music, she also loved to dance all the time any and everyone was always welcomed. Her favorite colors were red ,white, and blue True American. Her favorite snack was animal crackers, cheese doodle puffs, honey buns and her favorite were the little 25 cent juices, grapes, Popeye's chicken strips. Her favorite singer was Yolanda Adams and the songs we would listen to on Sundays when I go to see her was (I'm gonna be ready, The Battle is not yours, Open my Heart, Be Blessed) we would go on the patio and relax and listen to them and she would just look at me and say "Your mom left me something special, I wouldn't know what I would do without you," and I would hug her and kiss her all over. I would say grandma we are on this journey together and she would laugh and say "Yes, we are."
