Sheri M. Greenfield, Beloit, WI (1952-2014)
January 28, 1952 - February 9, 2014
Sheri M. Greenfield, 62, went home to be with her Lord Sunday, Feb. 9, 2014, while surrounded by her loving family and friends. Sheri was born Jan. 28, 1952, in Richland Center, WI, the daughter of Theodore and Mary (Ellsesar) Fry. Sheri was employed by Central Christian Church in Beloit, WI, as an office manager for the past 14 years, was an independent business owner of Young at Heart Tours, and co-owner of Bloyer Well and Pump Company. She was honored to volunteer with VetsRoll and held dear the over 30 years she spent at Hononegah High School coaching and investing in the lives of countless young women who were members of her dance, flag, and cheerleading teams. She led dozens of her teams to state and national championships and was recognized twice as the country's Top Small Varsity Cheerleading Coach by the International Cheerleading Foundation. Sheri enjoyed traveling with her best friend, husband, Bob, and her “Young at Heart” family. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family, particularly her grandchildren. Sheri's circle of friends was as deep as it was wide and she treasured each one as extended family. She was a woman of deep faith and following the example of her Savior, never failed to love and care deeply for every person in her life.
Sheri is survived by her husband, Bob, the love of her life, to whom she was married for 43 years; and her children, Tammy (Mike) Robinson of North Aurora, IL, and Ed (Trisha) Greenfield of Roscoe, IL. She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren: Aidan, Ella, Makayla, Camden, and Lily, whom she cherished immensely. Sheri is also survived by her brother, Jim (Kathy) Fry of Layton, UT; brothers-in-law, Ed (Sharon) Greenfield of Marathon Key, FL, and Robert McCartney of Rockton, IL; sister-in-law, Linda Greenfield of Roscoe, IL; aunts, Addie Haynes of South Beloit, IL, and Ruth (Steve) Carlson of Beloit, WI; special cousins, Creed and Sheri Westphal of Marion, MT; several nieces and nephews, and countless wonderful friends. Sheri was predeceased by her parents, Theodore and Mary Fry; brother-in-law, Gary Greenfield; sister-in-law, Judy McCartney; mother and father-in-law, Gladys and Charles Johnson; her special uncles, Joe Ellsesar and Almon "Bud" Haynes; her grandson, Jonah Greenfield; and favorite dogs, Noah and Sable.
