Sherry Louise Michitsch ascended to be with her Heavenly Father on October 12, 2015, after conducting a courageous twenty-one year battle with cancer.
She is survived by John, her loving husband of over forty-nine years, her son Johnny (Cynthia), daughter Liesl (Jason Giorgio), two grandchildren, Rachael and Eddie, her brother Bob Hamilton, and her sister Janet Binne.
An Army spouse, Sherry dedicated her life to her immediate family, and to the hundreds of military families throughout the world with whom she served, especially in times of conflict, when those families were most in need of assistance and a guiding hand to help them through their difficulties. She was a respected elementary school teacher with high, but achievable standards, and a love for learning that she passed on to her students, who always lived up to her expectations.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in her name be made to the Sarcoma Foundation of America.
