Her life began August 2, 1957 in LaPorte, Indiana to Billy and Jane Gilley.

Sherry was a compassionate and giving lady. She had a hard time saying “no” to anybody or anything. She would take Peggy by her hand and run across the yard to Grandma and Grandpa’s home. She loved flowers, her favorite being red carnations. Sherry was a very loving mother, always taking good care of her three sons. She was a fighter, right up until the end.
