On Wednesday, December 21, 2016, our lives were forever changed with the sudden and unexpected death of Sheri Marie Hutchinson. The loss of this beautiful woman has left many of us with broken hearts.
Sheri was born in Trail, BC on August 25, 1968. Sheri was a natural born caregiver; the one others relied upon and turned to for advice and support. Family and friends admired her for always being a “straight shooter”; never hesitating to put you in your place if need be. Sheri had also perfected “the look” …. which was sometimes all it took for you to know you were in trouble! She gave the best advice and didn’t get swept up in unnecessary drama. Her love and concern for others was genuine …. Sheri found the best in others and always believed in second chances.
Sheri was a very proud grandmother, an accomplished zipline acrobat, flip-flop sawyer, animal whisperer, and a domestic engineer. Her snowman collection was second to none – all meticulously organized! She loved George Strait and Johnny Reid, and was the most dedicated fan to the Hutchinson Bull Riders – never missing a rodeo!
Family and friends were such an important part of Sheri’s life; she always made time for them. Through phone calls, visits, messages, and loving gestures….. each one knew how much they were loved because she never missed an opportunity to tell them. Her loving spirit and her amazing legacy will continue to shine on within the hearts of the many who loved her.
Sheri is lovingly survived by her husband Ricky, her children: Mikki (Ryan), Lewis (Chad), and Daniel, and 5 precious grandchildren: Rhea, Eden, Jackson, Kacey, and Bailey, her mother Annie-Mae Taggart, sisters Anita (Adam), Laura, and Gayle (Jay), and her brother Alvin (Kelsey). Also left to mourn her passing is her grandmother Helen Taggart, parents-in-law Cliff and Joyce, and her dad, Pat Keller as well as many nieces, nephews and wonderful friends.
Sheri was welcomed to eternity by those gone before her, including her grandmother Charity Abrahamsen, grandfather George Taggart, her brother Cecil Olke, niece Lorena Abrahamsen, her grandson Alex Hammons-Pansch and her great niece, Harper Musso.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either the Seattle Children’s Hospital, 4800 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle WA 98105 or to the Canadian Downs Syndrome Society, cdss.ca.
