  3. It was a privilege to have met Sharri. Although our lives rarely crossed paths, I heard many wonderful things about her and her lifelong passion to help others. I remember her as a very kind and generous lady. Her family and community will truly miss her. Peace to you Sharri.

  4. Sharri was such a presence in the neighborhood for the 60+ years my family has lived on Franklin Street. Sharri called my homebound mother every day, and was such a lifeline since all of us “kids” live out of state. She will be missed.

  5. Sharri lived in my neighborhood. Years ago we would see her, very often, walking around the neighborhood stopping to speak with anyone outside in their yard. I enjoyed her visits very much. Missed seeing her these last few years. She was a sweetheart. My prayers go to her family. She will be missed very much.

  6. May you rest in peace Sharri. We will miss you.

  7. Sharri was a wonderful person who gave of herself in service to others. She is emblematic of everything we should all aspire to be.

  8. Sharri was a wonderful person who gave of herself in service to others always. She will be dearly missed.

  9. I have known Sherri since we were children running around the neighborhood. When she walked to Bryan and I worked there we always stopped and talked. Our Mother’s were also nurses there. Such a sweet person and always happy. She will be missed.

    • Sharri was so fun to visit with at Bryan Medical Center.
      I wish I would have kept in touch with her when I moved to Omaha.
      May you soar with the Angels on High Sharri.

  10. I am going to miss my dear friend. I will miss your phone calls and I will really miss our visits. Rest in peace my dear friend, until we meet again.
