This Obituary Has 3 Condolences

  1. We’re missing you, Sherri! May you be blessed by the Lord.

    For many years, I and so many others depended on Sherri to make something beautiful or at least acceptable out of the documents we passed her way. In spite of tight schedules, she was accommodating and generous with her time and guidance. Since I was an editor in “a past life,” we could commiserate about the craft and laugh together about that sometimes crazy work world. I never imagined we wouldn’t see her again. I offer my condolences to all her family and friends; may you find peace after the sadness.

  2. Sherri was a pleasure to work with and such a kind and helpful person. We will miss her laugh and her can do attitude. Rest in peace Sherri, you will not be forgotten

  3. Love and prayers to the family and good memories! ❤️ Mary Dillon
