Sherry was a loving person who had a big heart. Not only was she a devoted wife, mother, and Nana, she was “Mama Bear” to so many. She overcame so many obstacles through the years but lived her life to the fullest. We will always carry her love and memories in our hearts. Special thanks to the staff of Crater Community Hospice for the help and support that was given. Per her wishes there will be no funeral services held. In lieu of flowers, donations to any cancer foundation in her honor would be greatly appreciated by the family.
The family is being served by R.W. Baker & Co. Funeral Home, Wakefield Chapel where condolences may be registered at www.rwbakerfh.com.
