It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sherrie on September 2, 2021, in Winnipeg at the age of 65.
Sherrie was born in Winnipeg on April 18, 1956 to Robert and Joan Parsons. She was raised in the West Kildonan area of the city where she attended Centennial School, Edmund Partridge School, and St. John's High School. Sherrie was passionate about photography and after high school worked at Winnipeg Photo. On October 13, 1979 she married Edward and in the following years they welcomed their two children, Laura and Mark, into the world.
Sherrie was a loving and caring wife, mother, sister, and friend. She enjoyed gardening, crafts, DIY, cooking, baking, Christmas time, and singing to the oldies on the radio. She had a creative spirit, always trying new recipes or taking on various craft projects including making fairy houses, homemade wreaths, quilts, and teddy bears. Sherrie loved nature and worked hard on providing a beautiful garden environment for blue jays, robins, hummingbirds, and especially monarch butterflies.
Sherrie was predeceased by her mother Joan and father Robert.
Sherrie was quiet, kind, and devoted to her family. She is survived by her husband Edward, her children, Laura (David) Glasgow, Mark Hurrie, her siblings, Roberta (Ken) Boyak, Terry and Douglas, uncle Jim (Lois) Spencer, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, dear friends, and her devoted cat McAllister.
In accordance with Sherrie's wishes, cremation has taken place.
The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff of CancerCare Manitoba for their kindness, care, and compassion.

Mom, you were the best. We are so proud of everything you have done and accomplished.
We love you and miss you so much

  • Sherrie. Our good friend and neighbour. For 25 years. The kindest, quiet lady anyone could want to know. We did not know you were sick. But that just shows the kind of selfless, caring person you were that you didn't want us to worry about you. We can see your house from our window. We would always see you out in your garden or taking care of your flowers. You knew so much about growing things and gave us so much great advice on how to take care of our garden and flowers. We always would see you out walking your cat or just taking a walk in our neighbourhood. We don't see you doing those things anymore. Now, When we look out our window at your house, we just see emptiness. Our hearts full of sadness. Full of sorrow. Sherrie. Our good friend and neighbour. We miss you. - Posted by: Anita and Tom (Friend and Neighbour) on: Oct 04, 2021

  • I believe Sherrie was a student of mine at St. John’s in the late sixties, early seventies. It is so sad to lose those who are younger and who we knew in their youth. My sincere condolences to Sherrie’s family and friends. Cheryl Willis - Posted by: Cheryl Willis (Former teacher St. John’s ) on: Sep 16, 2021
