My deepest sympathies to all of you in Shereen's family. I was one of the many children who knew your Mom as my bus driver throughout the years I attended OCHS. I have very fond memories of her smile each day-even though it was very early in the morning ( I think we were her very first stop!!) Shereen kept us safe in all kinds of weather and would keep us laughing all along the bus route. Such a kind person and always one to recognize us outside of the bus with a friendly hello-even if we pushed her patience earlier that day...she is loved from afar and will be missed.

Shelly, Robin and all,
Your mom has been missed at Fareway for quite some time now. We enjoyed her smile and out going personality.
I haven't heard from you since our class reunion. I hope that you and your family are well and happy. I see you are a grandma now. Congratulations and hugs to you.
I wish all of you to have peace in your feelings of loss.

You have my sympathy along with the classmates of the of the Oelwein High School 1956 Class. We enjoyed having Sherry in our class because she so congenial, interested in so many things, and was a good friend. We were so pleased she made the effort to attend our 55th Class Reunion in August of 2011. It was good to visit with her at that time. We will miss her as we know you will. She was a loving, caring wife, mother and grandmother.
