Sherri graduated from Thornton Fractional South High School in 1960, then graduated from Northern Illinois University in 1964 with a degree in Elementary Education. She then furthered her education and received her Masters Degree in Library Science and Media Management in 1974 from Governors State University. Sherri was a loving and devoted teacher for 40 years at Sunny Brook School District 171, where she taught at Nathan Hale School. It was there that Sherri took pride in helping children reach their total potential.

Sherri had a giving spirit she volunteered her time at Zion EV. Lutheran church, Grant Park, IL, where she taught Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. She enjoyed keeping in contact with her high school friends, she would volunteer her time on the high school reunion committee, and she made sure all her friends and classmates knew about the upcoming events. She belonged to a group of 12 wonderful women who met in high school and kept in touch over the years. They valued each others’ friendship—each friend would take a turn and host a luncheon, just to spend time together and keep in touch. Sherri was loved by many and will be deeply missed. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made in Sherri’s name to Hospice of Kankakee Valley, 482 Main St. NW, Bourbonnais, IL 60914, or American Diabetes Association, 55 E.
