Jerry V. Meredith, age 80 of Bee Spring departed this life on Thursday, March 8, 2018 in Bowling Green. The Edmonson County native was born on June 8, 1937 to the late Jack B. Meredith and Maggie Carroll Meredith.
Jerry began his walk with Jesus in 1956. He was a devout Christian, member and deacon of New Salem General Baptist Church. He retired after forty-five years as a foreman of the Laborers International Union of North American Local Number 1392.
