OBITUARY: Sherry Diane Sowell

Sherry was born on November 24, 1962, in Maury County, Tennessee, and was the daughter of the late Clay Coleman and the late Mary Fraser Coleman.

She worked for ten years in sales for Action Homes before transitioning to cleaning homes. Sherry had a passion for working in the yard and tending to her flowers, and she had a talent for painting interior walls. Many will remember her as the “Santa Fe Diner Therapist,” and one who was always ready with advice on her front porch.

Outspoken and one of a kind, Sherry took pride in her appearance, ensuring her purses and shoes always matched. She had a deep love for her family, especially her grandchildren, and cherished her beloved fur babies, Kallie, Lucy, and Sarah Bella.

Blue of Columbia; sister, Gail Bishop of Columbia; grandchildren, Karma Stewart, Madison Marshall, Carter Bechet, Scarlett Sowell-Hudson, Bonni Hudson, Christian Baldwin, and Savannah Baldwin; nephews, Billy (John Hamilton) Robinson, Jeff (Renee) Bishop, Robby (Tommie) Robinson, Joey (Lori) Bishop, and Chris Bishop; and her best friends, Tina McGee, Cheryl Connelly, Charity Amos, and Cory Chapman.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Diane Bishop, niece, Stephanie Wooten, her nephew, Marty Bishop.

A funeral service will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2024, at 3:00 PM at Heritage Funeral Home with Rick Points officiating. Following the service, she will be laid to rest in Knob Creek Cemetery. A visitation will also be held on Sunday from 12:00 – 3:00 PM at the funeral home. Heritage Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
