Mary Jane Kerr of Sanford passed away on Monday, February 17, 2020, at UNC Medical Center at the age of 63. 

Mary was born in Puerto Rico on April 2, 1956, to David W. Kerr and Carmen E. Selgas. Before her unexpected passing, Mary 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 was very talented is an understatement. Mary 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 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 of her family and how much she loved them. 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 brother, David E. Kerr of Humacao, PR; her grandchildren, Davier Balsa, Isla Balsa, Rico Balsa. 

The family will receive family and friends at her home at a later date. 

Care of the family is entrusted to Crumpler Funeral Home of Aberdeen.
