She attended Des Moines Technical High School and was a homemaker for many years, devoting herself to her family and home. Most recently she volunteered at ChildServe in Ames, Iowa. Sherry enjoyed spending time reading books to children, dancing, gardening, and helping others. She also loved to host friends and family and her delicious meals will be missed by all.
