Sherrie was a member of the Frostburg Seventh-day Adventist Church. She was a 1978 graduate of Fort Hill High School, Cumberland and immediately began her lifelong passion as a florist with Nature’s Expressions, Cumberland, and years later with Pharmacare Floral (formerly Ren Roy’s flower shop). She also was co-owner/partner of Bills Lumber in Meyersdale, with her husband, Mark, brother Bill & sister-in law Jan Stairs.  She worked as a payroll secretary, safety consultant and event organizer. Sherrie also was office secretary for her husband’s business, Stairs Trucking. Currently she was employed with Closetmaid, Grantsville, as a product packer and at Kessel Lumber Products, Inc. Keyser, WV as a safety consultant.

Sherrie had a passion for flower arranging, working in her gardens and photography.  Going for nature walks, cooking, arranging & organizing, spending time on the front porch swing with a cup of coffee and motorcycle riding were also some of her favorites. She loved spending quiet time just being at her country home that her & husband, Mark built while they were married. Even more than all these things, Sherrie loved spending time with her family.
