Born in Abilene on November 15, 1950, she was a beacon of light in the lives of all who knew her. Sherry was a graduate of Cooper High School and went on to marry the love of her life, Lanny Aldridge, on July 18, 1969. Together, they raised two wonderful sons, Curry and Ryan.

A dedicated homemaker, Sherry's unwavering love and support were a constant source of strength for her family. Lanny often referred to her as his rock, showcasing the deep bond they shared. Their love story began over a pink cookie at Mac Eplen's and blossomed into a lifetime of cherished memories.

Sherry was a vibrant soul, always eager to lend a helping hand and spread joy wherever she went. She had a passion for gardening and spending time outdoors, tending to her livestock and immersing herself in the beauty of nature. A voracious reader, Sherry found solace in the pages of the Bible and a good book.
