Sad this has taken me all of this time, to compose. Kerry, I am ever so grateful that you let me know ,of Sharri's passing. I was stunned and saddened to hear the news. I am so very sorry for the loss of such a beautiful, joyful and smart woman. She was a true friend and I got to know her when she was at Economy Paper and later she was a client at Strong. We shared so much laughter, over the course of our long friendship. She was always THE most fun to be in a room with. Her kindness and love for all, will never be forgotten. Kerry she loved you girls more than you know. Jeff,I know that you brought so much joy into her life.I pray the memories will bring you peace.The service was beautiful, as she was. I was comforted by the stories and a bit of laughter (which I know..she would have loved) We were all so lucky to have had her in our universe.She was ever kind,caring and encouraging, to us all. I can still vividly hear her voice and her laughter as if she were still behind her desk, as we were starting a meeting.The days at the Park Ave. Pub remain favorites. I have so many happy memories to comfort me.I will perform that random act of kindness ,as she would want.Love and so much love to you all.Be at Peace Sharri. You were so loved.

I met Sharri in 1986 at a print shop that we worked together at. I was just out of Graphic Design school. She immediately took me under her wing. When we left there she said to me with 100% certainty that we would work together again. I loved her right away. Not long after, she hired me at the U of R Medical Center. She was a wonderful mentor and as she genuinely cared for me and my life's journey, our friendship grew and grew. I will forever be thankful that we met. Her positive attitude was so compelling, I know it's been the reason I can find hope in any situation. I will miss her dearly but she'll remain forever in my heart with many special memories.

I met Sharri in 1994 when I was job searching. She helped me secure a fantastic public relations position at the University of Rochester Medical Center, where I had the opportunity to work with her for 5 years. For this, I will always be grateful. She was always such a shining light, and had boundless energy. A beautiful lady through and through. My condolences to her family and friends. I will never forget her. Thank you for allowing me to attend the service via live stream. It was beautiful.

To Sharri's family, my sincere condolences. I met Sharri many many years ago at an Arthritis Foundation function. Over the years, we both were volunteers in various activities until our chapter closed.. She was such a delightful person to be around - joyful, friendly and always smiling! It was a pleasure to know, and work with, her. God bless Sharri and all of you!

Was telling someone the other day about how She and her daughters fought off the bats on Audubon Street with a tennis racket. She was a great Sales Rep for Economy Paper. I was lucky back then to see her when she called on us at Xerox and then could she her again when I went home. Best neighbor ever. Terrific lady!!!

Sharri was a lovely person through and through. October has become a difficult month. We lost Flo Tambe last October and Ellis and Sharri this year. All great people.
