Sherry Wilson

Sherry Ann, the daughter of William Washington and Hazel Naomi (Carrothers) Noah, was born November 29, 1944 in Cainsville, Missouri. Following high school, she attended Arkansas Polytechnic College. Sherry then worked as an elementary school teacher for a number of years. Later, Sherry worked in insurance claims for Hawkeye Life and EMC Insurance companies. Sherry spent her last 24 years married to the love of her life, Harley Wilson.

Sherry was an avid animal lover, loved to garden, and grow beautiful flowers. Sherry was family oriented, and enjoyed hosting 4th of July parties and Christmas gatherings. Her Christmas baking was amazing and her fudge was truly heavenly! She was a kind, loving, giving, caring soul.

Sherry is survived by her two dogs, Snoopy and Peanut; kitty, Missy; numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and a stepson all who loved her dearly. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Harley; three brothers: Billy Guy, Terrence Dale Sr., and Ronald Dean; and an infant sister.

Visitation will begin at 1 p.m., Friday, March 8, 2019 at Merle Hay Funeral Home in Des Moines, with her funeral beginning at 3.

Memorial contributions may be given to the Animal Rescue League.
