Gerner Family

The Johnson County Christmas Bureau thanks the entire Gerner family for their over 20 years of service running the Personal Care Department. Three generations of their family have volunteered, starting with Jim and Marj Gerner.

Jim Gerner was a former board member and participated on many committees, including budget, hiring, and planning. Always a pleasure to work with, he had a calm and pleasant demeanor and had much to contribute to any discussion. Jim always wore a smile and had a helpful attitude toward the many people that came and also for his fellow volunteers. He was instrumental in securing many donations, especially from the Kimberly-Clark company, and worked hard to create the best selection of items possible. The Gerner family was voted by the membership as Volunteers of the Year for 2015-2016.

Eventually, Andrea Cloughley (their daughter) took over running the department. Her sister, Jennifer Noble, joined her as co-chair. The Gerner family did an awesome job for many years and our clients really appreciated the merchandise they received from this department. The following are some of the family members who served at the Holiday Shop: Jim and Marj Gerner; Andrea, Dennis, Joe and Justin Cloughley; Jenn, Jeff and Austin Noble; Jeff, Annette, Samantha and Sarah Gerner; Jon, Leslie, Wyn and Sylvie Gerner; and Alyssa and Ben Coomes.

Thank you Gerner family for your
many contributions to the JCCB.
