February 8, 1944 – June 1, 2018
Sherry Lynn Bullard, 74, of Little Rock, Arkansas passed away on June 1, 2018 in Little Rock. Sherry was born on February 8, 1944 in Forrest City, Arkansas to Loren and Sybil Denton. She is preceded in death by her parents Loren and Sybil Denton and her brother Richard Denton.
She is survived by her daughters, Rebecca Bullard and fiancé Ray McCollough of Little Rock and Lori Roberts and husband Allen of Benton, AR; her brother Paul Denton and wife Bobbie of Mayflower, AR; her grandchildren Kaitlyn and Ethan Roberts; several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Sherry graduated from Altus High School in Altus, OK and then attended what is now UA Little Rock.

Sherry was of the Baptist faith. She had a generous and loving spirit and was kind to all she met. She loved family, raising her daughters and then caring for her parents later in life. She loved to celebrate all occasions; her family never missed a birthday celebration and always knew they were loved. She was a wonderful hostess with no detail missed. That detail also included her perfectly coiffed hair! She will be missed every single day.

My family lived across the road from the Bullard's in Weatherford, Okla., in 1975. Sherry was a very pretty lady, a great mom, and a good neighbor. She invited my mom & I to visit after they settled in Little Rock. It was a great visit, one I have remembered fondly. Sherry was a very nice lady. We join the family in grief, and send many prayers for them.

Becky and Lori. I was so saddened to hear about your Mother I remember all those many years ago as neighbors south of Weatherford. Your mother always welcomed us into your home. We all played together and I've always appreciated a childhood like that. I'm sure your mother passed that kindness and genuineness to you guys. Praying the Lord comfort your hearts with the wonderful memories you have whenever you need them to give you strength. Blessings to you and your families.

I am sorry for your loss. I am Bruce Cohen. I am a child therapist and worked with Sherry at the department of psychiatry for several years when she was tasked with trying to keep herd on our department performance improvement processes. She was kind, supportive and tolerated those of us who were not as organized. Many times she had to create order out of chaos. I would enjoy just stopping by her desk and would leave just a little bit calmer than when I got there.

Sherry and I worked together at UAMS for many years and were "office mates" for several of those years. She was a wonderful friend and a joy to be around. I regret that I had not stayed in closer touch with her during retirement. I will always remember her as the sweet person that she was.
God bless you all at this time.

I have such fond memories of my Aunt Sherry. When I was a little girl, I thought she was as pretty as a movie star, and she actually was (especially her hair :) ). As I grew older, I admired not only her beauty but her devotion to all of us and her amazing strength in the face of some difficult times. Becky, Ray, Lori, Allen, Kaitlyn, and Ethan -- you all took wonderful care of her. Thanks for posting all those great photos. They show a life well lived with family, love, and fun. Who could ask for more.
Much love from Micah and me. You are in our prayers. Val.

Sherry, my first cousin, and I have been close since we were two years old and have always remained close.
We enjoyed our visits at Grandmother Denton's house taking turns cranking the ice cream freezers with all
our other cousins.
I have always admired her love and care of her daughters as she loved them so very much and worked
hard to help them achieve their goals. She was also a devoted daughter to her parents.
Our laughter and love as toddlers continued through our evolving years.
I will miss Sherry forever! Cheryl Denton, Hot Springs, Arkansas
