Jerry was born in Delta, Colorado on June 11, 1917, the ninth of ten children born to Charles and Ada Dorsey. She went to Oklahoma with her sister in 1930 to help move her family to Bristow. Jerry met and married Frank E. Couch in 1939 while living in Bristow. Frank served in the United States Navy from 1941 1946. After the war, they returned to Oklahoma City where Frank worked in the oil business. They moved to Ardmore in 1951 and began Couch Oil Company. Jerry was a homemaker and after raising three daughters, she worked actively in the business with her husband. Jerry was a woman of many talents, but her greatest passions were her family and working in her garden.

She is survived by her three daughters, Jane Couch, Franklin, New York; Sally Couch Burk and her husband Larry Burk, Berlin, Germany; Nancy Couch and her husband John Turner, Houston, Texas; and numerous nephews and nieces.
