Sherry, as she was known by her family and friends, was born in Kalola Springs, MS on June 29th, 1933. After graduating from Caledonia High School in 1951, she worked at Ruth’s department store until she met the love of her life, Robert ‘Bob” McCormick. They were married on September 15, 1956. With Bob being in the military, the family lived in several different places before settling down in Lafayette in January of 1968 . Sherry was very involved with her church, singing in the Chancel Choir, attending Ladies Circles and Bible studies. She spent many years working for a local retailer, Landry’s Young Fashions and earlier, Gays & Joys. She loved tending to her flowers and plants, but most of all, spending time with her family. Sherry was a faithful follower and servant of our Lord Jesus Christ. Her Christian beliefs were a significant influence on how she lived her life. She is survived by her children, Col Robert S.
