  1. we are so sorry to hear of Sheryl’s passing she was a terrific fun lady and will be greatly missed

  2. Great Lady! Just saw her before Christmas at Walmart – always full of love and laughter! So sorry for your loss…Just so hard to believe – cherish every moment!

  3. So sorry to hear about Sheryl. Started first grade with her at State Street and lived in the same neighborhood until we graduated FHS. Always was there at the school at night for neighborhood fun. Have not been home in 55 years but remember Sheryl, and all the fun we had at State Street and just with the neighborhood gang, just about everyday at the school, after school. RIP my friend.

  4. Sheryl was not one to dwell on the negatives but rather be optimistic on the road ahead. She may be physically gone but far from forgotten, she will always be in our memories and that goofey “ laugh “ she had will ring in our minds endlessly. Sweet dreams.
