Sherry taught middle school for many years and then taught future teachers.  Ann Cleaver brought Sherry to Rotary after her husband passed.  Sherry dug into Rotary activities off the bat.  Sherry recently lost her battle to cancer.  All her Rotary friends share how much Sherry has meant to them. Her spirit, laughter, and kindness will be truly missed.  Both in chat and and sharing during the meeting; you could feel the love for Sherry.
