She is also survived by her loving friend, Jay Guillory and devoted friend, Nora Medina.

Sherry spent her life as a loving mother. She and her husband lived in Bellville, and loved being part of the small social hub of the community.  They owned and ran an antique store and restaurant.

She forever loved shopping, antiquing, and hosting parties.  After her husband’s passing, she found comfort in her new church family at Second Baptist Church in Houston, who became very dear to her.  

Her faith in God, her zeal for life, and love for family will forever be a testament to her character and a lasting legacy.

Friends were cordially invited to a visitation with the family from six until eight o’clock in the evening on Friday, the 3rd of February, in the Drawing Room of Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston.

The funeral service was conducted at ten o’clock in the morning on Saturday, the 4th of February, in the Jasek Chapel of Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston.

The family will gather for a private graveside service at a later time in Bellville, Texas.
