"To Sheri's family, She most definitely was a free spirit. Always laughing and having a good time. She always stood up for herself and others, and did have an amazing ability to run fast and long. She was great at track and field. Cindy is right, she should have received a scholarship. We all had so much fun at Wilson Jr. High. I would have love to see and talk with her through out the years. My deepest sympathy to her daughters and the whole family. Peggy (Fonck) Wilson Cedar Rapids"

"5/19/20 Dear Family of Sheri, Sheri really did have a free spirit, even back at Wilson Junior High School in C.R. where we knew each other. She was an excellent runner and dominated the track team with her speed and abilities. I don't recall anyone running faster than her, she was amazingly talented. Remembering her now and over the years I realize that she should have gotten a full ride-athletic scholarship, she was just that good. She was beautiful and funny and had a great personality. I remember how close she was to her dad and how much she loved him, and he her, he was her protector. She and I, along with Peggy F., and Pixie M., spent a lot of time together during those "Wilson" years. I have thought about her many times since "'Wilson" and how much fun we had together. My sympathy to all of you. Cindy Kindl Dallas, Texas"
