My memories of Sherry and Joe, her husband, were of working alongside them as volunteers at Southcliff ESL. They were faithful to come early every Tuesday night to help John, our director, set up and stay late to put supplies away. They were friendly and dearly loved by volunteers and students alike. The joy of the Lord was evident in their smiles and their attitudes. I know they are happy together in heaven now, but they will be truly missed on earth by us who knew them. Sue Vaughn

Aunt Sherry was always so sweet and welcoming, she always made me feel including in the family and always spoke kind words. She was a very wise woman who loved her family and loved God. We had many great conversations and I will deeply miss her. But I know she’s enjoying her time with her Lord and Savior.

Sherry was a considerate friend and joyfully served in various ministries at Southcliff. Both she and her husband, Joe were faithful in their walk with the Lord and supported us in the Worship Ministry at Southcliff. Their absence leaves a large hole in the body of Southciff. I miss them, but rejoice that they are in the presence of our Savior, Jesus. SAM S.

I feel so blessed to have volunteered and worked with Sherry for 2 years at Spring Breakout. She had such a love for the Lord and the children. I will miss your sweet spirit.
