 I always loved Sheryl and was hopeful she would have been my brothers bride after they graduated high school.  But their future careers took them other places.  I would go to Salem and stay at the YWCA when she lived there.  We had such a fun girls week-end as young adults.  So happy to have seen her smiling face at the state fair just a couple years ago and had contact with her on facebook.  She will be missed.

I will always miss you, Sheryl - I hope you and Larry are together forever now!

Aunt Sheryl, you were such a wonderful person. I always appreciated your energy and generosity towards everyone. We had some wonderful visits with one another. Thank you for sharing your spirit with me. I will always miss you. 

I'm so sad to hear this.  I watched Sheryl growing up, from her first day (she and my daughter Kristi shared the same birthday).  Her Mom and I were dear friends.  I'm so very sorry, and I'm praying for all her family.

Sheryl was such a kind person. I always remember her calm and happily peaceful demeanor. She will be missed.

So very sorry to hear of her passing. We grew up together in Tillamook and my mom worked with her Dad at the phone company. My prayers are with you all. Best regards Wendie (Cobb) Hayes Pounds

My condolences, Sheryl and her children were very dear to my family. Lost touch over the years, but still hold in my heart. Mary york
