Jeri Ann (Blair) Zozgornik, 61, of Hibbing, went to be with Jesus after her courageous battle with cancer, on Dec. 17, 2020.
She was born in Grand Rapids, Minn., on Feb. 20, 1959 to Gerald and Barbara (Adams) Blair. Jeri grew up on Long Lake and attended school in Nashwauk-Keewatin. She married the love of her life, David, in 1981 at her parent's lake home on Long Lake. She was a loving and caring person, devoted wife, mother and friend and was known for her positive attitude and jovial spirit. Jeri had many hobbies throughout her life including scrapbooking, rubber stamping, sewing and making teddy bears for all the new additions to the family. She enjoyed helping others and volunteered with the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary for many years until her health prevented her services.
