Obituary of Sherry Lynn Seelhoff
Sherry was a dedicated and loving wife and mother, who gave herself fully to her family and friends. Her kindness and generosity touched everyone she met, leading to recognition for her service with volunteer organizations. She was loving and loved, and her memory will be carried by all she knew. Sherry passed away quietly and unexpectedly in her sleep as the new year began. She is survived by her husband of 31 years, Gregg Seelhoff; sons, James Seelhoff (Meredith Baumann) and William Seelhoff-Ely (Sandy Seelhoff-Ely); sister, Melissa Short; mother-in-law, Margot Hellerman (Lance Hellerman); sister-in-law, Lori Seelhoff; niece, Heather Joswik; half-sisters-in-law, Angelina Hellerman and Andrea Hellerman (Jim Arnold); half-brother-in-law, Samuel Hellerman; two half-nieces, one half-nephew, and innumerable friends. She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Theresa Short; her father, Wyman Richard Short and her father-in-law, Gerald Norman Seelhoff. Sherry lived her life with empathy and passion, and had an infectious spirit. She enjoyed hiking, camping, canoeing, dancing, reading, hosting game nights, playing trivia, watching movies, and listening to music. She loved laughing with friends and family. She would want to be remembered by those she loved continuing to participate in her favorite activities and striving for the ideals and compassionate causes in which she believed.
