To family and many in her church whose lives she touched over the years, she was affectionately known as “Noni,” and “Grannana.” She was also known in the Jacksonville area for her work as a talented hairdresser for over 40 years.

Green and his wife, Joni of Oak Hill, West Virginia; niece Tomara McGinnis, also of Oak Hill, West Virginia; and many dear friends Sherrie considered her extended family.

Dear Rick and Family,

Sherrie was a sweet and sassy, generous, hospitable lady of God. I remember being in a Bible study group with her, and I admired the compact Bible she was using. The next week, she brought one to me. I am reminded of her each time I use it.

I pray God comforts you all during this time. I know Sherrie is in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and we will see her again one day.

Love in Christ,
Jennifer Diley

Rick and Sara, Sherrie was such a sweet lady and had a sweet spirit. When she smiled her eyes would sparkle. I am so thankful I attended the Wednesday Night Ladies Bible Study, I !earned so much from her teaching the class. Please know that we are praying for you as you walk on this journey with grief.

Dear Rick and Family,
Precious Memories floods my heart at this time. Sherrie was truly the sincere example of a friend to me. We shared a lot of laughs together and we shed tears together. Sherrie was a Godly example of a Christian woman she taught me so much during our time together at NPBC. I loved our trips to Sisters Tea Room and the Yum Yum Tree. She was the best secret sis you could ever ask for. She loved my children as if they were her own and they loved their Noni! She was a awesome Sunday School teacher she taught me so much through her love for Jesus. Her heart was big and she loved doing for others in her own special way. I will forever cherish our time together and I know I will see her again.
Much love,
Loretta Sanford

Dear Rick & Family,
You all are in our thoughts and prayers. May the gentle strong hand of our Lord Jesus, comfort your grieving hearts and soothe your spirit. Thank you for sharing this wonderful woman with us. What a role model she was; an example to younger women, children, elderly and strangers. She did The Lord's bidding and had a grateful loving heart. She shared so much. We are forever thankful for being a part of her life. If you were loved by Ms. Sherrie, you were so richly blessed. Praise God for His Saints among us, who have now gone home before us. After she gets enfolded in the arms of our Savior, greets other loved ones and looks over the beauty of Heaven, I'd like to think she is waiting by that sweet open gate (probably giving orders to the angels on how to hold it open properly), for us to be with her again, forever.
Our Love and God's best blessings to you,
Debbie & Randall
