Sherry was a member of Immanual Church in Wilmington and often volunteered to serve others. She earned a certificate in Alzheimer’s care and dedicated time to helping people afflicted with this condition. She loved to sing in services with passion. Sherry had an infectious smile and zest for life that touched everyone she met. Dressing fashionably and modeling at retail stores provided a special enjoyment to her.
