Sherry worked from 2000-2011 in property management until her health declined. Once she was at home full-time, Sherry’s care for her family became her passion. She was a caretaker for her son when he fell ill and she nursed him through to his recovery, She assisted with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren through their medical journeys and the births of their children, her great-grandchildren.
