Sherry Ann McCune

March 20, 1944June 20, 2020

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Sherry Ann McCune, on June 20, 2020. Sherry was born on March 20, 1944 to Muriel and John King. After growing up in north central Kansas, Mom moved to Kansas City and attended Avila College to became a registered nurse.

She married Dale McCune in 1969 and together they raised a family. She loved her family fiercely. Mom modeled inner strength and determination until her last breath. Her servant heart instilled a deep sense of compassion and work ethic that we hope passes on for generations to come. A loving and devoted mother, grandmother, sister and friend, she will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

Sherry worked in multiple area hospitals across the KC metro over her long career in nursing. Even after retirement from full-time nursing, she volunteered regularly as a Eucharistic Minister at KU Medical Center and earned a United Way Volunteer of the Year award in 2016 for her service at Duchesne Clinic. She was active in the St. Agnes Catholic Parish community for over 50 years.

Sherry is preceded in death by her son, Phil, her brother, Roy, and former husband, Dale. She was survived by her children, Debbie Lynn of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Cindy (Tim) Long, Rebecca (Marlon) McCune, Andrew McCune of Kansas City and 8 grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Lee, her aunt Gertie, her uncle Gene, her brother-in-law Don (Evelyn), sister-in-laws Carol and Robin and too many cousins, nieces, nephews and extended family members to list. She will be missed by many.

Mass of Christian burial will be at 1:30pm Friday, June 26th at St. Agnes Catholic Church, 5250 Mission Rd, Roeland Park, KS 66205. Current social distancing limits are in place.

Sherry was such a kind and lovely woman. There are so many good things to say! Most recently I remember her visiting my father and bringing him communion when he was at KU medical center. It meant so much to us to see her there during our time of suffering and grief. She made a difference here on earth and I am certain she is now joined with the Saints in heaven. I have a pink rosary that she made hanging above my kitchen sink reminding me of the kindness and joy she brought to us here. I'm certain she will be deeply missed. I will be praying for your family.

This is picture of Sherry and my mom Alice (King) Satoh in 1999 for the King Family Reunion. I am glad I went with my mom to see the King (my grandfather's) side of the family.

I am sending love and healing energy to the family for the loss of Sherry.

For many years, Sherry was a frequent reader at Mass at St. Agnes; she was a wonderful person who loved her faith. Her exuberance for living will be sorely missed.

My prayers and sympathy to all the family and friends.
As I did research for my Hayen family history, I communicated many times with Sherry. She was always very generous in her sharing of our common history.
I am with you in your loss and will keep you in prayer.
