Age 56, residing in Remus, MI, passed away August 20th, 2019. She was born February 4th, 1963, in Lansing, MI, to James Spalding and Rosemarie (Spalding) Beardsley.
Sherry Spalding was an amazing and compassionate woman. She independently raised 3 children, Charles Kapalla, Amber (Spalding) Fisher, and Tabetha Spalding, on her own while attending college and working multiple jobs.
In 1996 she reconnected with a man, Roger Jones, who she had a crush on when they were young adults. He had 3 kids of his own: Lisa Jones, Roger Jones II, and Danielle Jones. Two families became one family ever since. Together with their children they built a life full of adventures, leaving her family with many cherished memories.
Sherry worked for the State of Michigan for many years. With her strong-will to explore and show the world being a 5-foot tall woman did NOT mean she was less capable than any man. She joined her husband in the Union working on power lines traveling the U.S. She was fearless.
She was very creative and artistic. She loved building unique things. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, all 10 of them, with one on the way, teaching them to cook, to water fights, to tag. She would look just like another kid running around playing with her grandchildren.
Sherry leaves behind her mother, stepfather David Beardsley, father, husband, 6 children, 11 grandchildren, brother Jason Wyman, and other extended family and friends. She was preceded in death by her brother, Neil Spalding.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 8, 2019, at the Morley S. Oates Post #701, VFW, 123 N. Rosemary St., Lansing MI. Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel.
