Friend ,Overland Park ,Kansas

I met Sherry when I worked summers at International Harvesters during my college years in the 50’s. She was always pleasant with a smile on her face. Years later we renewed our friendship when she would come to activities at Zion UCC with Romaine Best. Romaine and my Mother Icie Fendorf were good friends. I also enjoyed her letters to the editor she wrote to the Kansas City Star. Sending sympathy to her family. Hers was a life well lived and I am so glad I got to know her. Marilyn Gunderman
