I knew Sherry from North Ridge Village in Albion where my mother is a resident. Sherry always had a smile even on days when she didn't really feel like smiling. She is lovingly remembered and missed.

I can't remember not knowing Sherry. We were born 2 months apart and we went to school together from the 1st grade on. I'm not going to say that I will miss her, because she will always be in my thoughts as long as there is breath in my body. I will say the world is a better place because she was in it.

I remember sherry and I trading move star pictures in the 50's and 60's. She did love Elizabert Taylor and I liked Elvis. I will think of Sherri every one and have for a long time to come. God Bless her Family.

I remember my Grandma Sherry and my Grandpa walking my brother and I up to the strand theatre when we were young. It was always tradition to get ice cream on the walk back at Baskin Robbins. Thats one of the great memories I have with Sherry. That and everytime we would go to her house for a visit we were always greeted with a cold soda! She always kept the fridge stocked and treats on the counter.
She will be very missed, and always in my heart. I love you Grandma!

Grandpa if you ever need anything Jeremy and I would be there in a drop of a hat. We love you!

One of my favorite memories of my grandma Brady is going to their house and how she would always save me her little sample lipsticks for me. I know that she is in a better place but I will always miss her.

Sherry was a wonderful caring friend. We did a lot of laughing together and some crying in Bradshaw, W. V. When the Arrington home burned, Sherry and I got to live like sisters for awhile. We were the same size, so we could even share clothes. Cheerleading and dancing were two other activities that we shared. Sherry has always stayed in my heart and my prayers, and one day I expect to see her again in heaven. My prayers are with all the family who, I know, miss her so much.

I am so sorry to hear that Sherry has passed. I grew up with her in the Bradshaw area and she was a special friend. I attended Bradshaw Jr. High and Iaeger High School with her. Sherry was always such a nice and outgoing person. Everyone loved her .....and no wonder, she was such a sweet and good person.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, Jerry and family. I knew Sherry for 50 years and you couldn't find a more caring, loving person. I know she will be surely missed in your life and the lives of so many she touched. She now is a far better place.

I'm so sorry to read of Sherry's death. I first met her when we both worked at Murphys (on Main Street) years and years and years ago. She was a wonderful, true friend. Over the years, each time we ran into each other we always had fun conversations catching up on each other's lives. Sherry was a beautiful, honest and caring person. She and I shared many laughs together. I'm so saddened to hear of her passing. I'll be praying for her family.

I was so sad when I learned of Sherry's passing. We cheered, went to dances at Ed's Canteen in War, and shared crushes and broken hearts.....and lots of happy days in Bradshaw. I hope all of the children, grand-children, and great grand-children will remember, as I do, her ready laugh, the twinkle in her eyes and the joy she always shared. I pray that she is at peace with our savior.

Sherry was such a kind and caring person. She was one of my best friends, we shared a lot of long talks, laughs, crushes, and heartbreaks. She always had an instant smile for everyone. She will hold a special place in my heart and when I heard of her passing, there will always be a void in my heart, but I will know it holds Sherry's love and laughter. My deepest sympathy goes out to her husband, children, and grandchildren. May yoyu always hold on to those precious memories of a precious person.
