Sherry worked in the customer service industry and was a homemaker. She loved to joke around and was very good at one-liners and comebacks. In her free time, Sherry enjoyed cross-stitching, sewing, painting, scrapbooking, crafts, singing, dancing, and telling stories. She was a Godly, unique, and thoughtful woman who loved her family. Sherry will be most remembered as a wonderful mother to her four amazing children.
