I had the privilege of working with Sherry at Marengo Community High School . She was extremely dedicated to serving students and our athletic programs in every capacity. We all benefitted from her work ethic, pleasant demeanor and infectious smile. I will miss her dearly. My thoughts and prayers go out to Roger and family.

Roger, Shelly, and John, my heartfelt condolences to you for your loss. It was a sincere pleasure to know Sherry. Locust street won't be the same without her. More than that, I think she was the glue that held MCHS together for many years while touching the lives of hundreds of students in her many roles.
No one didn't like Sherry Cannon. She was fun to be around and always had a cheerful attitude. She was special and will be missed.

I always enjoyed chatting with Sherry in "her" athletic dept when doing business with HyperStitch. She was always so proud of her family. RIP, Sherry
