Sherry L. Owens

June 24, 1974 — June 7, 2017

On Wednesday evening, June 7th, 2017, our beloved Sherry Owens (Boeke) while surrounded by her loving family, went home to be with the Lord. Born in Tampa, Florida on June 24, 1974, Sherry lived in Tampa, the United Kingdom, Germany, Washington DC, and various locations around New Baden, Illinois.

She always excelled in mothering her children and reaching out to others utilizing her degree in sign language. This past month she ministered in sign language in Tijuana, Mexico and witnessed 6 salvations for the Lord – the love of her life. Her 3 children, Jonathan (23), Victoria (19), and Emma (15) were her source of strength and inspiration as she battled abuse and medical issues. Sherry was an accomplished singer and sign language interpreter who ministered to others especially on trips to Disney World. The Lord and her children were her life.

She is survived by her parents, Lloyd and Joie Boeke and her sister Tammy (Chris Boyer), all currently living in New Baden.

Services: Visitation is being held from 10:00 AM until 11:00 AM at O’Fallon Assembly of God followed by a memorial service at 11:00 AM on Saturday, June 10th, 2017.

Sherry’s internment was at Green Mount Cemetery in New Baden on June 8, 2017.
