Family-Placed Death Notice

LEVICK, Sherry Sherry Levick, 68, passed away peacefully at her home on December 1, 2012. Sherry was born on September 7, 1944 in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, but grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina. She graduated with her BA from University of Michigan and spent a brief period in Chicago, IL before moving to Atlanta, GA where she established her life long roots and raised her family. Sherry was a passionate mother and working mother until she was forced to retire from her role in banking in the mid-1980s as a result of a progressive battle with Multiple Sclerosis. Sherry battled this disease for over 30 years, defying all odds against her and obstacles in her way. As a true Southerner and a strong woman, she lived every day with grace and poise, ensuring that her life was defined by her schedule and not by the one set by her disease. With sheer determination, and in spite of her condition, Sherry went out for lunch every day with friends or with her extraordinary caregiver Gracie Williams who was always by her side for the past ten years, feeding her strength. She is preceded in death by her father, Herbert Weisman, and is survived by her mother, Rosamond Weisman; her sister, Elaine Dinerman; and her sons, Michael and his wife Michelle, Jeff and his wife Kate; her grandchildren, Isabella, David, Liliana, and Oliver; her nephew, Scott Dinerman; and her niece, Jessica Dinerman. An online guestbook is available at In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Graveside service will be 11:30 AM, Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at Arlington Memorial Park in Sandy Springs with Rabbi Steven Lebow officiating.
