Sheryl’s love of God, her family, gardening, reading, pretty and old things will live on through all who knew and love her.
In lieu of flowers, it was Sheryl’s wish that people would deliver or send treats to a nearby care or assisted living facility. So wherever you are, please consider finding a facility near you that you could bless in honor of Sheryl. Her intention was to brighten the days of the residents, caregivers, and staff of those extraordinary places, some who may need a reminder that they are special to God and to us, and that who they are and what they are doing matters.
Arrangements are with Rush Funeral Home of Philip.
