March 26, 1942 – May 30, 2022
In loving memory ~
Sherrill was born in Neepawa Manitoba in 1942. She worked at MTS for three years before marrying her husband Murray of 59 years. They had two children: Marty and Caroline Torres. They moved to Cranbrook in 1971. She had three grandsons; Dr. Matthew Carvey (Cleveland Ohio) and Adan and Ethan Torres (Cranbrook). They were all the loves of her life. As well, she had two wonderful brothers: Wayne Sparling and family (Brandon) and Rich Sparling and family (Winnipeg).
From 1985-2000 she worked in engineering as a secretary in a business that they owned. Retiring in 2000, they traveled to Alaska and to Mexico and various states. She earned her 10-year pin at RCL volunteering. She was a member of the United Church and loved to sing with the choir. She met some very dear friends there. A special thank you to the Reverend IBI Chuan, Minister of the United Church in Cranbrook.
She was diagnosed with palliative pancreatic cancer in January of 2022. The family would like to thank Dr. Oosthuizen, Dr. Rolandi, Interior Health’s remarkable nurses and Commitment to Care night nurses.
Think of me when you see a Blue Jay. My favourite colour, the bird of Canada’s baseball team and God’s wonderful blue sky.
A celebration of life will be held on June 25 at 1:00 PM at the United Church of Cranbrook.
