Great Aunt Sherry

In the course of my geneology research, I have documented the lives of many ancestors, but rarely written about the close relatives who have impacted my own life.

100 years from now, one of our descendants may set out to research the life of Sherry Jean Hennessy Plevretes.  He might find the date of her birth, her parents names, occupations, residences along with the names and ages of her siblings. The track of her life would show the death of her father, the birth of her son Russell, her marriage to George and the death of her mother etc.  He or she could note the joyous moments such as the birth of four wonderful grandchildren, and the sorrowful loss of loved ones.  

Yet none of these facts nor the thrill of finding original documents could capture the essence of her life.  Perhaps, it is worth writing about some of our living and breathing relatives!  Who knows, maybe this blog will survive 100 years ....

There's so much I could tell you about my aunt; how she has been my rock and the force that held our family together all these years or how blessed I have been to feel her love, support, guidance and friendship.   But these pictures do a much better job demonstrating her  exuberance, joy and love!
