They moved to many different places and met many dear friends and had many great adventures along the way in their 64 years of marriage. Although Sherry never forgot her roots in Hagerman and the family whom she treasured until the day she passed. She visited as often as their busy military life would allow.

Sherry worked in many different jobs, with every move, there were different job opportunities. She found her calling in accounting and bookkeeping.
