Her grandchildren's fondest memories of Sheryl are sleepovers, cooking together, going to the movies, shopping, and fishing. Sheryl’s oldest grandchild’s favorite memory is of how she helped teach her to do fractions for math class in a creative way. Her children’s fondest memories of her are being a stay-at-home mom, going to the zoo, singing with her in the truck, doing crafts together, and her teaching them how to cook and bake. Nicole's favorite memory is her mother taking her to see their grandparents at the lake in Missouri. Jason enjoyed going to the fishing derby in Colorado with Sheryl where Jason won after catching the biggest fish.
There will be a Celebration of Life for Sheryl at a later date. The family will release details when they are decided.
