After a struggle lasting for two years, Sherri Walters passed away on Monday, February 21st, 2011.
Here is the published obituary:
Sherri Walters passed away on Monday, February 21st, after a two year struggle with non-smoker’s lung cancer.
In her own words, she was “a daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother, teacher, health-food nut, homeschool supporter, life learner, gardener and bread baker wanna-be, cottage keeper, local foods supporter. Jill of all trades, master of none.”
Sherri was a trusted homeschool portfolio evaluater with a passion for life learning. She was a source of support, encouragement and inspiration for numerous homeschooling families throughout the state.
Sherri is survived by her husband, Andrew Walters, her three sons, Andrew Codispoti, Daniel Codispoti, and Matthew Codispoti, all of New Hampshire, by her mother Janis McCreary and her father David McCreary, of Virginia, by her sister Bonnie Zarzeka of New York, by her brother David Mark McCreary of Massachusetts, and by extended family across the Eastern Seaboard and in Nova Scotia.
Her wish is that donations be made on her behalf to Heifer International. A memorial registry where gifts in her honor may be made can be found here:
