Margaret Ducharme (Raymond) of Lund, BC. Gerald Overton of 150 Mile House, BC. Thelma Johnston (Bruce) of Penticton, BC. Sherrie was born in Penticton, BC but spent most of her younger years in Williams Lake, spending her summers at her family cabin at Quesnel Lake. In 1971, Sherrie was named Miss Lions at the Williams Lake Stampede before moving to Robson, BC to finish high school. It was in Robson that Sherrie met her ex-husband Dave Scott. Throughout the years, while raising their 4 children, they enjoyed camping, fishing, flying, and boating. Their many moves took them around British Columbia, Northwest Territories, and Alberta. Her favorite travels included Hawaii, where she went on several occasions with her family and sisters.
Sherrie relocated to the Okanagan in 2002 and worked as a bookkeeper. Here she enjoyed the sunshine and could be found swimming at the local beaches and pools. Her favorite times were spent with her grandkids, dancing and singing. Sherrie grew the most beautiful flower gardens and enjoyed watching the birds come to her garden and patio. Sherrie will be remembered as a loving daughter, a caring sister, and a faithful Christian. But most of all a wonderful mother, fun grandmother, good friend, and hard worker. With COVID-19 related restrictions, a private celebration of Sherrie’s Life will be held on Sunday, August 9th at 3:00 pm at the Summerland Baptist Church, 10318 Elliott Street, Summerland, BC.
