Sherry and I worked together at B of A for 7 years and remained friends over the last 18 years for dinner s every other month and social events to Reno, Music Circus and various other places. She was always the Life of the Party and her jokes before Norm started our Collection Meetings were hilarious until some people said they weren't "Politically Correct" so we always said them at our dinners of our group of 10 who went out for dinners. In the latter years you could see her demise and Sherry wasn't herself but she still came to all of the parties. I especially remember when we celebrated my 60th Birthday Party and she told some jokes that were risque but I never cared because this was our Sherry that we all grew to LOVE no matter what. She is in a better place now as she isn't suffering anymore. RIP SHERRY!!!!

Though it has been 15 years since I have seen her, Sherry will remain in my heart an inspirational spirit and one of the enduring "voices in head". She always new the right thing to say and never hesitated to share. Through the years her smile, laughter and guiding words have helped me to stand up when I felt like giving amazing force of nature, now a guardian among the Angels...with gratitude and prayers...Mary, Gail & Kiera

Sherry and I worked together for many years in the Collection Dept at Bank of America in Rancho Cordorva and got to be good friends. She was happy, had a good sense of humor which helped the Collection gang make our job easier to handle. Always there to help when needed. Life is short and sadly ends which should make us all treasure the life we have.

I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Sherry at the Bank of America when our administration offices were located at 1023 J St., Sacramento back in the late '60's/early '70's. Sherry always had a smile on her face and happy comments to make your day better...that and a great laugh! We'll all miss her support and participation in our Retiree Group and will keep her forever in our memories.

I met Sherry through a mutual friend Martha Callahan, who also passed a few years ago. I could see why Sherry and Martha were such fond friends because of the goodness in them both. God bless Sherry as she is reunited with our friend Martha.

Sherry was a beautiful person inside and out. Her sense of humor and her love of life got me through many things good and bad. Her illness these last few years were hard to see. I really believe that she is happier right now without the pain and disappointments of those years. RIP Sherry
