Sherry was a talented cook and enjoyed entertaining often having friends over to play cards or her family to celebrate holidays and special occasions such as birthdays and graduations. Sherry was best known for her funny, quick dry sense of humor, never missing a Redskins game and above all else – her love and appreciation for family and friends. Although she will be greatly missed, Sherry leaves a wonderful legacy behind through her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and will continue to live on in the hearts of everyone she touched throughout her lifetime.
To honor Sherry, a private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
