On Monday, July 29, Sherry was called home to be with our Lord. She parted from this earth as she slept peacefully at home. She was born to Maple and Dorothy Browning in Essex, Missouri, although, she was a life long Texan. She dedicated 50+ years of service as a caregiver in numerous long term care facilities in Bexar and Atascosa counties. She loved her job as well as the many friends she made along the way. Sherry (or Maw Maw as everyone called her) loved and lived for her family, especially her grandchildren. If you wanted to see her face light up or watch her smile, let one of her grandchildren enter the room.

She is survived by her sister Paulette Slaughter (Frank) and sister at heart Debra Masters-Benevides (Ben) her children: Deana Shields (Harry), Carolyn Padier (Billie), Darla Hughan (Ron) and Luke Redus (Karla).
