Jeri Hooper-Boschi passed away at the age of 91, in Patterson CA., on March 30, 2021. Born in San Francisco, CA to Joseph and Virginia Muratore, Jeri was “born to be a cowgirl” and spent most of her life riding and showing horses. Jeri’s passion for horses turned into a career when she met and married Al Hooper. She and Al raised National Champion paint horses in Fallon, NV for 30 plus years, until Al’s passing in 1996. Jeri loved all animals and had a special bond with her dogs.
She was blessed to find her beloved Julius and they married in 1997. They also shared a love of horses and they enjoyed watching team roping, brandings and spending time with both of their families.
She is preceded in death by her husband Julius Boschi whom she loved greatly and couldn’t wait to hold his hand once again. Jeri is also preceded in death by her brother Charles and sister Walleen.
