Sherry M. Spalding

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.

You were my friend first then a family member. We did alot as kids that we laughed about as adults. You will be missed my friend more than you’ll ever know. True friends do leave footprints on your heart and you left yours on mine. Rest in peace

Condolences and sadness from our family. She helped us without even knowing us when our great grandson needed a temporary bed while visiting from another state. I know you will be missed by all.

Was one hell of a woman she was a funny woman she was an amazing mother and grandmother she will be surely missed had good times remember going to a concert and having our shots going to the hotel and passing out will miss her I know my sister will surely miss her she was a friend to everyone that she knew. From her strength that she had her family will continue even stronger remembering her knowing how she would want things done helping each other get through this difficult time especially Roger helping him to go forward she wouldn’t want him to be left behind she would want him to go forward with his life remember her because that’s what she would want you to do love her in passing but remember her in life. Love and respect to all of you will miss your mother will miss sherry God bless.
