Jeanette Sherman

October 07, 1938 ‒ December 18, 2019

Mansfield, Ohio

Jeanette Mae Sherman, age 81, peacefully passed away Dec 18, 2019 at Crystal Care Centers of Mansfield.

She was born Oct 7, 1938 in Mansfield to Chester & Stella (Yonkovski) Kumisarek and was a 1956 graduate of Mansfield Senior High.

Jeanette worked many years in local school systems as a cafeteria worker and later a custodian and retired from Malabar. She also worked as a secretary for Ohio Brass Co. Jeanette was a member of St. Peter’s Parish in Mansfield.

She loved doting on her special 14-year-old corgi, Tuffy. Fiercely independent, Jeanette was always active and participated in the Livestrong cancer survivor program at the Mansfield YMCA. She truly enjoyed cooking and passed her love of food to her daughters. Above all, Jeanette cherished spending time with her family and they will miss her dearly.

She is survived by two daughters Lisa Stevens of Mansfield and Kristie (Ned) Kirkpatrick of Columbus; grandchildren Avery, Mackenzie, Brady, and Darbie Kirkpatrick; and brother Charles Kumisarek of Mansfield.

Jeanette was preceded in death by her parents and her husband Donald in 1980.
