This lady! Wow! So many thoughts and memories. She loved her family, friends and strangers alike. Sherry gave this world art from her inside out. Before I actually met her in person we were friends. We both love the color red, which says alot about our personalities. She lived out loud, and created her own path in life. Everytime I see a rainbow I will know she is sending me a message. I love that Sherry was always Sherry even when the rest of us didn't agree. Rest in peace my love, you deserve it! Wonderful daughter, done. Wonderful wife, done. Wonderful mother, done. Wonderful MeMe, done. Job well done my friend. You are already missed.

I was so sorry to hear about Sherry’s passing. . I will always remember our families camping trips with the Jones family. She was a talented painter. I gave her a photo of one of my grandsons a few years ago that she wanted to paint a picture from. Prayers for all of you. Love your family!

My love and prayers are with all of the family. I know there is a lot of hurting and sadness losing Sherry. She was one of a kind and I loved her. Working for Sherry in the early 80s at her shop on Pleasant Grove Road was a very special time for me. She was a great boss and a great friend who taught me so much. I have so many special memories of all the fun we had together and I will never forget them., She always treated me like one of the family ❤️You are loved and will be missed ! Garian
