Being outdoors brought much joy to Sherry. She loved tending to her garden and flowers, as well as camping, fishing, and boating. She also delighted in picking blackberries and hunting for mushrooms. Motorcylcle trips with her husband, Mike, and rides on her horse, Lacy, brought great delight to Sherry as well.
Other hobbies included archery, reading, and making beautiful afghans.
