Obituary for Sherry Cole (Cannedy)

Sherry Cole (Cannedy)
Sherry Philene Cole, age 57, passed away with her husband and children at her side on April 19, 2017 at the Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George, Utah from a pulmonary embolism.

Sherry was born on June 23, 1959 in Wichita Falls, Texas to William Phillip Cannedy and Mary Medeiros. Sherry graduated from Wichita Falls High School. She attended Mid Western University and Brigham Young University. Sherry was happily married to Ed Cole, who was her loving companion for almost 38 years.

Sherry is survived by her husband Ed Cole, son Chris Cole and spouse Brooke Heath Cole and two granddaughters Addison and Sienna, son Scott Cole, daughter Caitlin Maurine Skillings and spouse York Skillings and two grandchildren Sawyer and Cardon, son Cameron Cole and daughter Cassidy Cole, parents Phil Cannedy and Mary Medeiros, sisters Mary Cannedy-Clarke and Terry Sorenson.

Sherry grew up in Texas with her two sisters, an identical twin Mary and a younger sister Terry. She loved everything about Texas. She played the bass clarinet in her high school marching band and loved performing during football halftimes with her twin sister who played the French horn. Two reasons band tryouts rivaled football tryouts.

After her first year of college in Texas, her heart lead her away from her beloved Texas to BYU without any friends. During her first week of school in a statistics class a young man spotted her and knew immediately he had found his true love. After a few failed attempts to introduce himself, one day Sherry walked up and sat next to her future husband in class and started a wonderful courtship.

Sherry loved and lived for her children. She gave them every ounce of energy and strength her body had. She had a gift of knowing when to be their mother, their friend or both at the same time.

For the past few years she had suffered severe chronic pain from multiple neck fusions, spinal arthritis and headaches. But her family still came first. One of her greatest attributes was never letting on to the degree of pain she was in. She hit the wall several times, but quickly rebounded to take her place as a wife, mother and most special of all, a grandmother. Truly being in the service of others, is losing one’s self.

Visitation will be Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 12-1 PM at Beaty Funeral Home in Mineola. Graveside will follow at 1:00 PM at Roselawn Memorial Gardens in Mineola.
