Sheryl was a beautiful person. I went to JHS with her and she will be missed by the class of 68, family and friends. RIP

I just read this and am so sad to find out about Sherry's passing. We lived one street apart while in elementary school and played together until her family moved out by Central City.  We attended Wilson Jr. High as well as NHS together, which is where we reconnected and some of us enjoyed going to dances, having sleepovers, and just hanging around together. 

Sherry had the longest, straightest hair of all of us, so we nicknamed her "hair". She was a great friend and will be sadly missed.

Sheryl was a beautiful young lady whom I was very close to during our senior year.  I have thought of her often over the years wondering how life was treating her.  May peace be with her and with her family.

I knesw Sheryl more in recent years,than in high school. So sad to see her passing after having recently found happiness. s

She knew the Lord and she was riding a motor cycle,which she apparently loved,when she died. We are 65 and it is still too young!

I miss Sheryl everyday. We were friends in school, lost contact over the years and renewed our friendship. I introduced her to Bernie and sang at their wedding. Was her matron of honor.
