  1. She was a good ‘Sis who didn’t like doctors! Please, please, get regular check-ups!! She loved to help others!!! In the Lord’s House, I can’t imagine anyone needing help, so Sherie…you can kick back now and enjoy the beautiful place Our Lord has prepared for you. Hi to Mom, and all our other heavenly family and friends!! Love YOU more!! Big Brother

  2. My aunt always liked to be the fun one. For a while she asked my sister and I to drop the “aunt” and just call her Sherie. Before she had my cousin, we were the ones she played with. One of her favorite things was to take us on walks in the neighborhood stopping at every house that had a dog. She knew them all by name and she knew how each dog liked to be pet or scratched. She also took us trick-or-treating and had the best witch cackle I ever heard. She took us to mini golf and arcades and had us over to play games and to sleepover. Like I said she wanted to be the fun one 🙂 She always wanted a dark green Jaguar and I was supposed to buy her one when I got rich and famous. Well, I was only remotely famous and I’m not rich (yet) so one day I will take a ride in a dark green Jaguar just for her.

  3. My Aunt Sherie left me with many happy childhood memories of great times we had acting goofy. She was always ready to come down to our level to play games with her little nieces just as I’ve seen her do with her Grandson, Jordan on many occasions. I will miss seeing her at church on Sundays but I know she is free from the pain and in great company in heaven with God and all those who went before her.

  4. I just want to offer my deepest sympathy. I know how it feels to lose someone close to you. I know it hurts right now but it’ll get better with time. Just remember she is in a better place. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

  5. I love my aunt sherrie with all my heart.I will always remember how when she came to visit in Llano she would take a walk on the golf course and come back with a shirt full of balls. There are so many memories of my Aunt Sherrie. Every time I look at the moon I think of my grandma Mary Lou, and now when I look at the moon I will think of My grandma Mary Lou holding my Aunt Sherrie in her arms with big smiles on both of their faces looking down on all of those they love and care about.

  6. Wow i cant believe she is gone.She was so funny and i really enjoyed laughing at her.But i know she is in a better place.Miss you karen or Kim Gibson

  7. Sherie I am going to miss you, you were a nice and fun person to talk to.iIt was so funny when you and Jordan would play ball and you would win and he would get upset and start to cry. I will try to be there for your daughter whenever she need to talk,cry, are just need some one to confort her. Love you but God loved you best.

  8. when i met sherie she was this happy go luck person, then i realize that was just the way she is and me and my family fell in love with her, i know that fulin will miss her alot.always in our heart

  9. Sheri was a pleaure to work with and her job dedication and creativeness was to be admired. She was very thoughtful and courteous and and I always enjoyed talking with her. She leaves a great character as a reminder to many of us who where fortunate to know her. If God has a shipping department Sheri is already cheerfully organizing it under His loving hand.

  10. I know you’re in heaven seeing all the family and spending time with Jesus so could you go ask grandma if we can have some ice cream! And save some for me when I get there. I will miss you terribly and I feel like our ‘cousin’ chain has been broken, we were and are so close. Kisses up to you, Lori

  13. After my grandma died heidi and her mother sherie took me as if i was one of there own. They tryed to do stuff with me cause my mother was unable to take care of me and my siblings. When I meet Sherie she was a kid at heart. She took care of people who r in need. Thats what I loved about Sherie. I will deeply miss her and the things she did. She is and will always be my grand mother in my heart and in spirit. Love u with all my heart SYDNEY OLIVER

  14. Dear Sherie… You raised a beautiful daughter Heidi and helped raise your little grandson Jordan. We have heard from your friends and coworkers what a wonderful support you were to them and what a wonderful coworker you were. You were a dedicated employee of over 30 years at American Pneumantic Tool. You were one people could count on to be there for them. That is a very noble trait. Love…Your older sister Danell

  15. My Aunt Sherie… When I was volunteering for my school community service at the Nakaoka Center, she came from a safty class at Gardena Police Department with Grandpa and friends. She went to the snack bar that I was working at for the kids chess tourament. When she came to order something to eat, she was trying to make me laugh with her weird jokes.Lol! My mom said that when she was little, Aunt Sherie would tell them something funny. They started laughing because she was really funny when she was trying to be crazy. And I was like, “oooh, yeah.” What I liked the most about Auntie was when she came to my house, like our Christmas breakfast. I will always remember her serving Grandpa even when we tried to serve her. Those were the good old times, but now the times are changing. So Sherie, tell everyone I know in heaven I said hi and give them my love. May you rest in peace. Lots of Love, Kelly

  16. Aunt Sherie, Your life and love has touched so many of us and you will be greatly missed. Wonderful memories I will always have and cherish.

  17. Since I will be unable to attend the memorial for Sherie due to family obligations in Arizona, I wanted to express my sincere regrets and sorrow for the loss of Sherie. Sherie was a fine and compassionate person and I have enjoyed working with her these last almost 5 years. Even though we had downsized our staff, Sherie was always on the list of loyal and dedicated associates that had a place to call her work home. I last spoke to Sherie by phone in the hospital. She sounded positive and was looking forward to completing her treatments and getting back to work. Little did any of us know that her time left on earth was so short. To all of her family and friends I know this is a difficult time. Rest assured, that she was loved by all, and as you well know, was a terrific lady. I will remember Sherie as I knew her at the office, not only as a responsible and dedicated associate, but as a friend. Ken Eads

  24. Sheri and I came to know each other because of our jobs.. I didnt find out about her passing until after the services. Never the less, her passing has caused me deep pain. She was caring, honest and so funny. I am happy that her life touched mine and will miss her. Bless her in heaven.
