  1. What can I say about Sherry but that she was a special Lady she had plans and dreams beyond her life time and had she not been over come by Cancer she would have kept following her dreams. She was a very easy person to talk to and had a heart of gold. I am blessed to known her. Rest now Sherry in peace and have no more pain that you dealt with for so long.

  2. I was so sadden to see that Sherry passed away. I enjoyed working with her at Jantzen. I can’t believe this but I thought about her on Monday, wandering how she was. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

  3. To the family of Sherry,
    I am so sorry to hear that Sherry has passed away. We went to high school together and we always had a lot of fun doing what high school kids do.I got to know Sherry again over the last year while she was helping her friend at the thrift store. We would spend a lot of time talking about the old days and what was going on in our lives now. I’m so glad I had that time to spend with her.She was a wonderful and beautiful woman and I will miss her.

  4. Sherry and I worked together for several years at Jantzen. She was a delightful person and we shared many laughs. We got together a few times when I was in Lincoln visiting but had lost touch over the past few years. It was truly a shock to hear of her passing. I wish that I could attend her service to say goodbye but we live in Arkansas now. My deepest sympathy to the family.

  5. My deepest sympathy to Sherry’s family. Sherry and I went to high school together and our paths crossed off and on over the years. Beautiful woman with a smile I won’t forget.

  6. I was so sorry to hear about Sherry. She and I attended grade school and high school together. We would see each other now and again over the years. Such an up beat personality and infectious smile! She will be missed.
