Sherry was a loving wife, mother, “grandma”, sister and friend to many. She loved life and made sure she lived each day to its fullest. Sherry was always the last to go to bed and the first to rise. She was loved by many, touched the hearts of everyone she met and she certainly left her thumbprint all over the world.
Sherry was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed her trips to the beach and taking in the beauty that nature had to offer. She pursued many hobbies and her favorite of them all was spending time with her family and friends.
