It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear Sherie, after a very courageous and private battle with cancer. Sherie leaves to cherish her memory, her true pride and joy, daughter Lindsay (Chris); husband Bob; mother Agnes; sister Gail (John), Cole (Alina), Clint; brother Harvey (Colleen), Hayden (Teagan); mother-in-law Mae Hoey; Godmother Sandra Tutkaluk, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and in-laws. She was predeceased by her father Harry; sister Valerie; Elaine Foster (nee Dola) and father-in-law Roger Hoey.
Sherie was born in Gimli and spent her younger years on the farm in Winnipeg Beach. She met Bob and soon after they married, they moved to Gillam. It was there that Sherie snowmobiled, camped, and fished, taking part in all the great outdoors. In 1990 they welcomed their beautiful daughter, Lindsay, and from that moment on, Lindsay was the light of Sherie's life. The pride she had for her was easy to see. They became a team and did many things together, including taking a trip to Europe, where they toured Italy, England, France, Switzerland, Belgium and Germany. It was an experience she truly treasured. Sherie took pride in all of Lindsay's accomplishments, and was there for every one of them. She took great joy in walking Lindsay down the aisle and seeing her start her new life with Chris. She was so much the proud mom of the most beautiful bride, who enjoyed spending time with her mom just as much. There was always much love to be shared around the breakfast table, where every week, Sherie and Bob would take Lindsay – and eventually Chris – out for some much needed bacon and eggs. Sherie also loved watching curling, and enjoyed attending the Scotties in Gimli a few years back. She would often be on the phone with her Mom, discussing the games, each one making their point as to who was really the best - Gushue or Edin (who Sherie fondly nicknamed "Little Nicky"). Unfortunately. Sherie was presented with a challenging diagnosis, which she faced head-on. She was determined to fight and get on with her life. Her spirit and will were strong and unwavering, but Heaven was in need of an Angel with those exact qualities, and sadly she was taken from us way too soon. Our dear Sherie, our love for you will live on forever. May you find peace in your new home with Dad and Val. You were an amazing mother, daughter, sister and aunt. We know you will watch over us, and be the angel on Lindsay's shoulder. You were a gift and blessing to us all. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cancer Care Manitoba or a charity of one's choice.
A private family service will be held.
