Survivors include her husband, Tom; sons, Patrick and Michael; daughter-in-law, Amy; and grandchildren Parker, Allyson and Emily.

Sherri was taken to her heavenly home with family nearby. Although her shell here on earth failed her much too soon, her spirit is strong and will live on in those lucky enough to have known and loved her.
We have been blessed by her presence. She will be remembered by her sense of humor, lively personality and joy for life. Some people come into our lives and quickly go, others stay and leave footprints on our heart. Sherri was generous and loving to family and always saw the good in people and taught unconditional love. She always thanked us for our love, and we likewise will always think of her with our love. Mom, you were the greatest and we already miss you.
