Sherry and I met as freshmen at Western Ky U and became fast friends immediately. We have shared our lives for 55 years. We discussed everything from religion to weather to politics to bad haircuts. My husband David and son John quickly became close to her through the many years of her caring and sharing, we all three cherished her friendship. We love her and we shall miss her, she enriched our lives with her humor and with her uplifting and inspirational comments. She is the only person I know who read the Bible from beginning to end, telling me: "When I meet God, I want to be able to tell Him I read His Book." May she Now and Forever Rest in His Heavenly Peace. And, may God comfort her family and her many friends. She will be remembered in our hearts always. Sending special love and prayers to C.A. and Betty, to Carey, and to Shannon.
May God Bless and Keep.....Carol (Philapy), David, and John Nisbet

To All of the families, sorry for you loss, Sherry was a wonderful fun person. I met her as friends with my sister Kelley (Seavers)Fitzwater. They were the best of friends in school as well after through out the years. I was a Central High Class of 1960. However I was also friends with my sister's friends. They were at our house a lot and I took my sister to their house a lot. She will be missed so much. I was friends with her on Facebook and enjoyed our chats and pictures.May God put his Loving Arms around each one of you all and keep up your Faith, Strength, Love, Peace, Prayers with this sad time for all. You all will be in my daily prayers. Stay safe.
With Loving Thoughts and Prayers.

Sorry to read about Sherry. I remember all of my neighbors but especially Sherry because she checked us in on our wedding night.

She died young and will be missed.

Sherry, a beautiful, accomplished young lady. I often recall pleasant memories of our time together. Thank you for that...and your secluded driveway on Washington Ave...
Thank you for your selfless labor for the addiction community. Unheralded but beautifully rewarded.
I was looking forward to spending some time with you at our 60th High School reunion in 2024...maybe another time.
God Bless You Sherry Smith...Godspeed!
