She was 58.Sherry was born on June 30 1964 in Fremont Ca. and moved with her family to Eagle in the summer of 2015.Sherry was a reading tutor and her passion was working with children and adults that struggled with dyslexia. She was very proud of her students and worked hard to help them improve their reading and spelling skills which at the same time boosted their self-esteem and confidence. Sherry also loved nature walks, baking and going to the beach or a lake she always liked being around water. But the one thing she enjoyed the most was being around her family on the holidays or casual visits. Family was always important to her.Her laughter, voice, personality and kindness will be greatly missed.Sherry was a bright light in our world, always concerned about other people more than herself. Through her shined the light of God and with that light she made friends wherever she went.

I’ve known the Flemmer since me Sherry And Gail were three years old. We went to k-12th grade together and lost touch when I got married and moved to Vegas. We were always in and out of each other’s lives but we were always family! Sherry’s love for others will never be forgotten! I love you Sherry! Until we meet again my beautiful friend.
I met Sherry through her Niece Jennifer. I remember Sherry taking us in her car for ice cream. I thought that was the coolest. A beautiful soul gone too soon!
Sherry was an amazing lady, a lady I was blessed to call my BFF. We met through Gail her twin. I was looking for someone to assess my child for dyslexia on Facebook and Gail recommended Sherry. We instantly hit it off.and became fast friends. Sherry and I always said, “God knows exactly what we need”. He gave me the honor of being her best friend forever. It is a precious gift and one I cherish. Sherry had a heart of gold and her career and plans she made all evolved around helping others. Her family was her top priority. How she loved them. There was nothing she wouldn’t do for them. When God took her home to be with Him, this world got darker. Her smile could light up even the darkest places and warm the coldest environments. She will be dearly missed. Until we meet again! ❤️❤️❤️
Please accept my deepest condolences. I met Sherry in 1st grade, and we both believed God brought us together to be life long friends. Sherry lived her life to the fullest with her devotion to God, to her family and to her vision of ministering to children with dyslexia. But to me, the most important legacy she left behind was her LOVE. To Sherry’s family, how blessed you were to be loved by her! To Sherry, thank you for being my best friend all these years. I will try my best to honor your memory by loving more. You are all in my heart and prayers.
Sherry was truly one of those that God broke the mold when He made her. Her love for people was genuine, especially for her family. Her heart was made of gold. Her career and dreams were focused on helping others. She ALWAYS put others before herself. She lived Philippians 2:3. The light in her life was prevalent and her personality was magnetic. Sherry’s gentle spirit showed me my rough edges and softened my heart toward others. God blessed me with this delightful lady and I am privileged to call her my BFF! He worked through her to grow me. Her friendship has been a precious gift, one that I will cherish always. Her walk here has been successful in all the lives she has touched. I love you forever, dear Sherry! Until we meet again.
I have no words to say how much I’ll miss you. I’m just so glad to know you’ll never have to be in pain again, I love you so much, Mom.
Sherry my childhood friend, I will always cherish the memories of growing up with you. You were part of the best days on Doane street. I remember often pretending to be your triplet with Gail. When you cut your hair , I went home and told my mom to cut mine. While my heart is sad, I think back to all the memoires and smile. I have comfort in knowing this isn’t goodbye, it’s just til I meet your beautiful soul again in Heaven, To the Flemmer family My heart hurts with you and I will be praying for you all, sending love and hugs Natalie
You were a servant of God always. An Angel on earth, with the most loving soul. I will see your smile, hear your laughter, and feel your Love forever and ever. Until we meet again, you are forever in our hearts
Even though Sherry and I met only six months ago, she and I became sooo very close in a special friendship that only our Lord Jesus could have brought together….
Tim and Sherry and Charlie and I were in Hope4Cancer together in May…even though the circumstances were the dealings and effects of cancer, she was a Light and a Friend to me ‘for such a time as this’…Sherry and I shared our Faith and Prayed and Loved and Talked and Encouraged each other…through the very rough waters of life…She will ever be in my heart and we will be together in Heaven one Happy Day. I am so very grateful that her pain is no longer…and exceedingly missed by all of us left behind…we will Hold you Sherry in our hearts! Amen. BRENDA ULREY
We are so sad to hear about Sherry’s passing. While we only knew her a short while when she tutored our son, we found a special friend in Sherry. What a gentle spirit and a kind heart she had. Her love for Jesus was so evident in her life. Even after she stopped tutoring due to her health, we sent her a message that our son had decided to follow Christ and she was overjoyed and cried happy tears! We will see you again, Sherry! Prayers for your precious family.
