Sherry was born on June 10, 1943.  She attended Hillcrest High School graduating in 1962. Sherry was actively involved throughout her school years in student government, junior high cheerleading, varsity high school cheerleading captain, journalism, homecoming attendant and queen.
She was loved by all her classmates and enjoyed attending their many reunions over the years.
Sherry knew at the age of six that she wanted to be a Cosmetologist. She attended Blue Bonnet Beauty School and after receiving her license was employed at Glen Isle Beauty Salon in Springfield, Missouri.
She was faithful to attend High Street Baptist Church where she sang in the choir and met her husband, Gary Stephen Rimer. He said it was love at first sight.
Sherry and Gary attended Bible Baptist College together where she received her degree in Education. After graduation, they accepted the call to serve and Gary pastored in St. Louis, Missouri, then later moved to Union Missouri to start a church and congregation.
They eventually raised their family in Carthage, Missouri. She did not want to retire from being a beautician or leave her job that she loved, but did so after 52 years.
Everyone who knew Sherry will tell you she was the most loving, giving, and kind person you would ever meet. Always putting the needs of others before her own.
She had a smile that would light up a room. Her favorite hobby was knitting. Sherry would spend hours knitting sweaters, baby items, afghans, and more. She was fun loving and light hearted, always ready for playing a game with friends and family.
Sherry was a devoted wife, mother, sister, and friend.  Her eyes were always fixed on Jesus throughout her life.  We know she is with him and singing in heavens choir.
