Sheryl finished her race and left this world to receive her heavenly reward at 3:30 p.m. in the afternoon on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013. She went home to be with her Savior and Lord Jesus Christ and her father, Bob Bowman; father-in-law, Warren Clark; foster brother, Dale Pomeroy; grandparents; and her numerous aunts and uncles.

Sherry was born in Emmetsburg on June 22, 1949, and grew up in Ayrshire. She graduated from high school in 1967, got her bachelor’s degree from Buena Vista in Storm Lake, and her master’s degree from UNI. She worked 39 years for Spencer High School as a business, typing, shorthand, computer and careers teacher. In retirement, she volunteered with Atlas of Spencer, and at her church. Sherry enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, shopping, watching sports and volunteering.

She is survived by her husband, Larry; her mother, Marilyn Bowman; her sister, Gayle (Steve); her children, Ryan (Katherine), Ashley Smith (Ryan), Whitney Smith (Josh) and Blake; her seven grandchildren, Hope, Anastasia, Josiah, Joshua, Jordyn, Elijah and Jayda.

She already is dearly missed and her family awaits the Heavenly reunion promised to all who have had their sins washed away by the blood of Jesus.
