She attended primary school in Colbert, WA and Priest River, ID. She graduated from Bonners Ferry High School in 1965. Sherri is survived by her husband, XXX, brothers XXX and XXX, her 3 children, XXX, XXX, and XXX as well as 2 step children, XXX and XXX. Sherri has 7 grandchildren whom she adored as well as her precious nieces and nephews.Sherri worked for many years as a waitress, most notably at Chic-n-chop Restaurant, as well as the mail carrier for Naples. In later years she worked for the Boundary County School District as Study Hall Monitor at the middle school level in addition to various aide positions, her favorite being at Riverside HS. She loved working with the kids and watching them progress into fine, young adults.
In her leisure time, Sherri enjoyed crocheting, gardening, baking, horseback riding, hiking, camping, fishing, bowling, riding roller coasters, and anything that involved her grandkids. One of Sherri’s last projects was to finish two beautiful afghans for individuals at the Cancer Center in Renton, WA where she they took such good care of her during her many chemo treatments.
Sherri was a kid at heart! She never missed a chance to ride the roller coasters at Silverwood with her “kids” from the schools or her grandkids! She will be remembered for her fun side as well as for the courage she showed during her long, 12 year battle with cancer. She was mom to so many more than just the three kids she gave birth to which she was reminded of in her final weeks with us here in this world. Her list of friends and family extends beyond any list we can create, but you all know who you are and how she loved you. We all have peace in knowing that she is with Jesus waiting for us to join her.
The memorial service for Sherri, will be held at the Mountain Springs Church in Bonners Ferry, Id on Saturday, Dec 7th at 2PM. There will also be a luncheon following at the Free Methodist Church.
