  • My heart goes out to all of Sherry’s friends and loved ones during this time. I have great memories of hanging out with “Ketter” at her house growing up. Summers were spent riding our bikes up to Geyers through the field or playing on a giant mound of dirt left over from the houses being built. She was one of my favorite people to catch up with when I would come back from college with her beautiful smile and a great laugh. I know she will be missed by many. Saying prayers that God give you the strength you need to get through this.

  • Sherry is one of my best childhood memories! Living in the same neighborhood, riding bikes, going to the Y to swim, yes of course the balance beam in the basement, and just hanging out. Anything with Sherry was FUN. So high energy and positive and oh so many hard belly laughs! So, so sad to hear this news. My love, condolences, and prayers to you, Chuck, Mary, Cindy, and sweet Madison.

  • Chuck, Mary, Cindy, Maddy and family. We are so sorry to hear of Sherry’s passing. We have so many memories of the girls in gymnastics and cheerleading together.

  • I am so saddened by the loss of Sherry. She was one of my first besties. We became instant friends when I moved to Renschville in the 4th grade. We were inseparable for many years and shared many fun times together, including our birthdays because we were one day and one year apart. I will always cherish the memories that we made. As young girls, we alternated between houses on the weekends, had matching outfits and hairstyles, cheered together, got into trouble together (ha) and made up dance routines to preform at slumber parties. Sherry’s smile was so bright and contagious and she always managed to light up the room. I will cherish all of the memories we made together and with our friends.
    My deepest sympathy and condolences go out to Mr. and Mrs. Ketterman, Cindy and Madison. I will be praying for your family.

  • Oh how our hearts have been so heavy these last few days. Sherry had such a big personality and an even bigger sense of humor, so being in her presence was always the best of times in our younger days. I ran into her a little over a year ago & I asked her to do her “Pumpkin Eyes” for me, and she did! Then we laughed a lot, reminisced a little, and took a selfie together 🙂 Sherry still had that knack of making people feel special, as always. To the Ketterman family, we share in your sadness and bestow to you lots of love and comfort. I do believe in God, and that Sherry now knows the joys of heaven.

  • Cindy and family I am so sorry to read of your loss. May your love and memories bring you comfort now and in the days to come.

  • So sorry to hear of Sherry’s passing. I will always remember the good times and her smile, laugh and kindness. Fly high, Sherry. ❤️ Hugs to you all!

  • Chuck, Mary, Madison, n Cindy n family… so sorry for your loss. You have our deepest sympathy!
