Sherry, 59, of Checotah went to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, December 13, 2023.
Sherry was born February 5, 1964 against all odds in Muskogee, Oklahoma to Billy JB Rogers and Helen Ruth Ross. She proved just how strong and how much of a fighter she would be coming into this world only weighing 3.8 pounds.
She attended Warner Schools until she dropped out in 12th grade. Later, she continued her education at Connors State College.
Sherry loved beyond all measure and showed more compassion than anyone.
Sherry had many titles added to her name. She was a daughter, sister, mother, aunt, wife and Nama being her most precious title.
Sherry met the love of her life almost 42 years ago and married him the following year on March 21, 1983 in Collinsville, Oklahoma. For most of you that may seem like a lifetime but just one day without her seems like and eternity, when you came into her life you were family and her smile and hugs became home. She would do everything within her power to make sure you were ok, whether it was as small of an act as a cup of coffee to fixing you a meal or staying up all night on the phone.
Sherry was preceded in death by her dad, Billy JB Rogers; her mom, Helen Ruth Rogers and her son, Billy Snow Byrd.
She is survived by her husband, Jackie Lee Byrd; son, Jackie Byrd, II; son-in-law, Jeff Francis; daughter, Christina Francis; brothers, Johnnie Rogers and his wife Jamie and Danny Rogers and his wife Kendra; five biological grandchildren and two step grandchildren.
