Sherry was an active member of Franklin County Education Association and Delta Kappa Gamma Professional Women Educators Association. She has touched so many lives and will be remembered by all who knew her. From a friend’s Facebook post, “Sherry’s advice was to love God, enjoy life, do a lot of fun things, travel, be kind, and love each other.” She believed in telling everyone how much she loved them, and continued doing that through her final days.
