Sherry was born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, grew up in Illinois, and made Davis, California her home for the past 28 years. She died of a sudden heart attack on July 20, 2008.
Sherry graduated with high honors from UC Davis in 1985, and from UCD's School of Law in 1988. After a brief career as an attorney, Sherry found her true calling as a licensed wildlife rehabilitator and blogger. Her blog "What Did You Eat?" is a popular site with wonderful recipes and photographs of food she has creatively prepared. The weekend postings are updates on the life of her cats and rescued wildlife.
Sherry was cherished and loved by her family and many friends. She will be greatly missed.
Sherry is survived by her husband of 37 years, Bob Cermak; brother Frank Cunningham III, and several loving cousins, aunts and uncles, and her mother-in-law Margaret (Bunty) Cermak.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, July 26 at 10 a.m. at Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Rd., with a reception to follow at the church.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Sherry's name to the Wildlife Care Association (www.wildlifecareassociation.net).
