Sheryl's whole life was her love for Bob, her husband. They enjoyed golfing, traveling, and spending time with their labs. Sheryl was a fiery redhead with a passion for life, family, and friends. She had an ability to never forget family or friends birthday's or special occasions. Sheryl's passion for life was passed on to everyone who knew her. She made every newcomer feel welcome with her great smile and contagious laugh. She was the first one to rally the troops when there was someone in need of help.
