Sherry Ann Brooks, 53, of Paw Paw, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, November 1, 2023.

She was born January 8, 1970, in Dowagiac, Michigan, the daughter of Jerry Brooks and Wilma (Dolly Gillette) Dempsey.

She made at least one new friend everywhere she went.

Sherry was preceded in death by her brother; Jerry "Al" Brooks Jr.
