I send my deepest sympathy to Sherry's family during this time of need. Serving as DJ during Kent's Fest for 9 years in a row, it has been my honor to know Sherry and her family. She was one of the sweetest people that I have EVER met. At the end of each Kent's Fest, Sherry would be there to thank me for a job well done, and hand me a Whitman's sampler pack of chocolates. Kent's Fest is always so emotional but, this April, as we pause to remember Sherry, there will be alot of tears flowing. God bless, Larry, Kelly, Karen and Kevin and their families.

Tonia Turner

Sherry's life and family brought blessings to my family through the gift of her daughter, Kelly as my sister-in-law and as another mom to my brother, Phil. In her presence I always knew grace, kindess, and good humor. May she finally rest in peace with Kent. We send our love and sympathy to the Glossner family - Marilyn Tim, Elizabeth, and Sarah Gerde

This is a beautiful web site. Sherry would love the flowers on this background. Sherry was an inspiration to all who knew her...she touched many lives in a quiet, gentle, loving way. She was strong and a true example of the kind of mother, spouse and friend we all should be. I thank God that I knew her.

Paternal Cousin Janet McKee McCleery

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you today and the coming days. Sherry and I shared many happy times when my family would visit when we were growing up. She was the only girl cousin I had that was my age so we were close friends, although we only saw each other 1-2 times per year. We would write letters and keep up with each other's lives and families. I will always remember her as a happy devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Love to all of you, Janet

Thinking of all the family at this time. We will be sending a memorial donation for Kent's Fest as I know it was a project that Sherry was dearly involved in. She was a very warm and sweet lady and I was so glad to have had the opportunity to meet her. Many times with distant relatives we don't have those opportunities. I know she will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Bruni and Bill Magent
