Sherry Yates, 77, went to be with her Lord and Savior on December 20th, 2021. She started out as a stay at home mother and wife and ended up working for the board of education for 38 years. After retiring, Sherry enjoyed hanging out with all of her kids and grandkids, who loved her dearly. Sherry had lots of friends and family and she loved each and every one of them so much. She was a very good and loyal friend. Sherry's family meant everything to her and making memories and keeping traditions was also very important to her. Sherry loved to cook and was good at it. You never left her house hungry. Her homemade vegetable soup, chicken and dumplings, and dressing will be greatly missed.
