Remembering Sherri ...

Sherri was the most loving and giving person I have known. She and I went through school together and were close in our adult years. Words cannot express my sadness in losing such a sweet friend. My love and prayers go to her mother and sons. Sherri will live on through her love for them. God bless ~ Ilse

Sherri, I will miss your smile with those wonderful dimples and your sweet ways. Be at peace my friend and know that we will see each other again one day. I will miss you terribly til then.

Max Weir remembers singing in the school choir with Sherri, as well as he and Sherri playing in “A Christmas Carol” in 8th grade. They played Bob Cratchit and wife.

I've known Sherri for some forty years, since junior high school. She was always a very special person, with a very big heart. She raised two great sons, and was 1000% dedicated to her "kids" at Fox Tech. Her fight against the cancer which took her WAY too early was an inspiration to us all.
God bless you Sherri. I'm proud to have called myself your friend and I'm going to miss you something fierce.
Love, Mary
