Mary Jane Kerr of Sanford passed away on Monday, February 17, 2020, at UNC Medical Center at the age of 63.
Mary Jane was born in Puerto Rico on April 2, 1956, to David W. Kerr and Carmen E. Selgas. Before her unexpected passing, Mary Jane was a very kind, happy and loving person who always put others first before herself. She lived and breathed for her children and grandchildren. To say that Mary Jane was very talented is an understatement. Mary Jane worked for over twenty years at American Airlines traveling the world. She was known to work her magic in the kitchen to the delight of all those around her. Mary Jane was also a business owner. She owned her own restaurant and was also a massage therapist. She was a psychologist and college professor. Flowers, as well as plants, always reminded Mary Jane of her family and how much she loved them. Those who knew her best always affectionately knew her as MJ or Sunshine. To sum things up, she was the epitome of a friend, mother, grandmother, family member, colleague, and above all a great giving soul.
She leaves behind her children, Ramon D. Balsa (Eledy Rivas) of Greer, SC, Alfonso J. Balsa of Reston, VA, Arturo M. Balsa (Fiona Winoto) of Sanford; her father, David W. Kerr of Raeford; her brother, David E. Kerr of Humacao, PR; her grandchildren, Davier Balsa, Isla Balsa, Rico Balsa.
