Sherry was a blue eyed jokester and artist who loved the warm and vibrant Florida beaches. She was very book smart and could solve complex mathematical equations in her head. Her most precious gifts in life were her children, she taught and encouraged them to love and be there for one another. Visiting with her granddaughter Ivie was something that she always looked forward to and was something that always brought a glow to her face. Sherry always loved spending time with family and friends and could ramble on and on for hours about funny jokes and stories.
Sherry loved going fishing, so her and her three younger brothers would go every chance that they had! Sherry had two lifelong best friends (her sisters) that she loved and cared for dearly, Melissa and Tara (Kydd, as Sherry called her). Sherry loved and appreciated her parents, Myrtha and Wade very much and always loved reminiscing with them any chance that she could. Sherry and her family shared many stories and memories together, from crazy to sad and some special moments that will forever be held in their hearts.
Serenity Prayer Loved By,
Sherry C. Schmidt
God grant me the serenity to
accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
