Virginia Sherry

August 30, 1925 ~ March 21, 2018 (age 92)

VIRGINIA LORAINE SHERRY was born on August 30, 1925 in White Plains, New York to Madeleine Olivia Lewis and Samuel Clark.  She received her formal education in White Plains, New York.

After graduating from high school, Virginia continued her education by attending nursing school, to pursue a career as a Licensed Registered Nurse. She also applied her nursing skills as a caregiver. She was truly a blessing to her profession. She retired after serving others for more than forty years.

On May, 12, 1944, Virginia was blessed with a beautiful daughter, whom she named Jacqueline Olivia.

During the mid-1970s, Virginia united in holy matrimony with her soulmate, James Sherry.  In 1997, James was called home to glory.

Shortly afterwards, Virginia moved to San Diego, California to be near her daughter and grandchildren. There, she re-entered the workforce as an in-home caregiver. Virginia, who had a very loving nature, made many friends along the way and wherever she went. Her daughter, Jacqueline Olivia Frank Weekes preceded her in death on December 21, 2014.

In 1998, Virginia joined the Second Baptist Baptist Church in Linda Vista, under the spiritual guidance of Dr. David C. Greene. There, she served faithfully on the usher board for twenty years. She loved her church and church family, but most of all, she truly loved the Lord.

Virginia was well liked by many due to her spunky, selflessness and genuine spirit. She loved to talk, listen to others and help others with encouraging words. She was funny and always had an old saying to go along with everything she said. She also enjoyed cooking, sewing, shopping at the thrift stores, and she especially loved dogs. She had a kind and generous nature, always helping others in need, including many charities. Virginia played a major part and was a blessing to so many lives.  She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. 

On Wednesday, March 21, 2018, surrounded by loved ones, Virginia Loraine Sherry was called from earthly labor to eternal rest. She leaves to cherish her memory: two grandsons, Kevin Weekes and his wife, Ann Marie and Robert Weekes and his wife, Rachel; four great grandchildren: Jared, Clayton, Alana and John, and many friends, some whom she considered family, including her church family.
