Sherry was a member of the Church of Christ.  Her family was the center of her life and she loved being a housewife, mother, and grandmother.  Her house was always full of love and sometimes very chaotic with the kids running around.  In her spare time she loved to sew, quilt, and bake.  There are many things she made throughout her life that her family will cherish for generations to come.

Sherry is survived by her four daughters, Cindy Boyle and husband Bill of Meridianville, Alabama, Christy McDole and husband Steve of Reelsville, Indiana, Judy Osborn-Turner and husband John Turner of Amo, Indiana, and Stephanie Osborn of Lafayette, Indiana; siblings, Ruby Jeanne Wylie of Cookeville, Tennessee, Sonny Plake and wife Lynn of Burkburnett, Texas, Arletta Baxter of Tipton and Vicki Dickey and husband Fred of Frankfort.

Osborn II and Joseph C. Osborn and two brothers, Jack E. Plake and Charles W. Plake.
