I worked with Sherry at UT Hospital for many years. She was an excellent employee and a treasured friend. I will always remember her sweet smile and all the extra things she did for so may people.We share many good times in and outside the workplace. She was loved by all who worked with her. She will be missed! I am sorry that I will be unable to attend her services but will keep all the family in my prayers.

When I first seen Sherry, Sonja, and Marcia, they resembled each other so much, that I automatically Knew they had to be sisters. Her smile, kindness, and caring came naturally. She never seen me without asking how I was, and hugging me. I could always see the love for God shinning through her. I was blessed, to have the opportunity , to have met her. I know her love, and kindness will live on through her children, and her close family members. May God bless each of you, and help you through the loss of such a special lady. 💙🙏🏻💙

Sherry was such a wonderful and loving person. She reflected the love of Christ in her everyday life. What a blessing to sing beside her in the choir for several years. My prayers for her family during this difficult time. Rejoicing that she is now singing in the heavenly choir. See you again my sweet friend. Save me a seat beside you!
