Words could not describe her beauty. It ran deeper than sickness and aging could touch. In her battle with cancer she was victorious though it eventually decimated her body. As heroes often win a war even though they lose a battle, her life was a testimony to unwavering commitment to faith in Jesus Christ, her savior. That was her legacy. Sherry stayed a constant encouragement to her family through pain and emotional suffering. She was concerned for those that she had to leave behind. She accomplished much in the few years that she lived among us - not in noteworthy achievements that will be recorded in history. What she accomplished is recorded in our hearts, in our memories, in our spirits. May God, Who gives us breath and in His time takes us back to Him, give her the rewards of her love and faithfulness. We look forward to seeing her again in His presence and in perfect health and happiness.
She is survived by: her husband Robert; daughters Jennifer and Crystal; grandson Ashtyn; her dad Arden; her sisters Debbie, Tammie, and Roxanne; and in addition many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Celebration of her HOME COMING will be announced later next year. In lieu of flowers and cards please consider a contribution to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in her honor. You can make a donation to St. Jude here: https://bit.ly/2Kr88KQ
