Sheri A. Heldreth, age 38, passed away Sunday, August 23, 2020 at Bristol Regional Medical Center.
Sheri would fill a room with her personality and smile. She not only loved butterflies – but was a social butterfly. She loved her children, granddaughter, and all of her family. Sheri made friends anywhere she went. She was very smart, and worked in the medical field for many years, helped run a family business, and finally became a stay at home mom. Sheri loved music – especially the guitar. In the Marion Senior High School Band, she played the trumpet, and regularly played TAPS for American Legion members. Sheri will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Raymond Sr. and Helen Lyons; paternal grandmother, Shirley Hawthorne; uncles, Chris Wingate and Ray Lyons.
