She is also survived by 4 step - grandchildren Andrew Embrey, Justin Sypher, Brandon Ream, Bethany Sinsel (Zach), Ashley Miller, 3 step great – grandchildren and many, many more family and friends considered family.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her stepfather, George W. Jones, Jr.; step - grandson, Michael Ream; uncle, Terrance B. Collins; aunts, Katherine J. Johnson; Leona M. Marchese; 

To know Sherrie was to love her. She was a bright light to everyone she met, she never met a stranger and could make friends wherever she went. She had a laugh that was recognizable from across the room. Sherrie was a happy-go-lucky woman that would take anyone under her wing and helping anyone that needed a hand. She always wanted to make sure everyone was having a good time and was the life of the party. Her favorite sayings were, “It is what it is,” and “You do you!”

Sherrie was a hard worker, she worked for Charles County Sheriff’s Department for 17 years and The Washington Navy Yard for 5 years, she also worked as a bartender and waitress most of her life at many known establishments around Charles County.

Sherrie loved being outdoors, her favorite places were anywhere on the water or on the back of James’ Harley Davison . She loved four wheeling, boating, crabbing and fishing. When she was at home, you could often find her in the garage, listening to music with a beer in her hand and a smile on her face. We hope you think of her when you hear the songs “Jeramiah was a Bull Frog” or “Pontoon.”
