Obituary for Sherry F. Sanders

Sherry Sanders was born in Brooklyn, New York to Mary Jackson and James Sanders on July 23, 1966. Sherry was raised by her brother Jesse and her grandparents, Parker Jackson and step-grandma Bessie in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. Even though Sherry was born with cerebral palsy, she didn’t let it affect her personality. She was very happy child. After her operation, she felt accepted by society and was able to thrive. Sherry was an extremely caring person. Whenever she was in a good place in life, she was the biggest and brightest energy around.

Sherry and her children relocated to Boston, Massachusetts and spent many years around loving family. She was not one to stay in one place too long but would always be sure to reach out. To her, family was the most important thing and she loved to spend time with them. Sherry was loyal to the people she loved and fought especially fiercely for her family. She would do anything for her family’s happiness and if anyone was in need of having problems, sherry would be the first one on a bus or on the road to help, one particular found memory was that her friends in the neighborhood called her the “cakelady” because she always made it a point to bake a cake and give to anyone celebrating a birthday. She was a lover, protector, fighter and uplifter to all.

Although her life wasn’t easy, sherry was an over-comer, She didn’t allow the bad times to keep her down. She loved her children and wanted only the best for them. Her life was Ronell, Shana, James and Joshua, her babies. One of the biggest blessings sherry was able to see was the birth of her granddaughter baby El-Ora. It was the icing on the cake for her.

Sherry was loved by many and she will be missed, especially her infectious laughter and being the life of the party. She left an indelible impression upon all she met.

Left to mourn her is her brother Jesse (Sandra) Jackson, daughters, Ronell and Shana, her sons, James and Joshua , granddaughter El-Ora, nieces, nephews, and a host of family and friends.
