Sherry Louise Michitsch

Notice Condolences



Sherry Louise Michitsch ascended to be with her Heavenly Father on October 12, 2015 after conducting a courageous twenty-one year battle with cancer. She is survived by John, her loving husband of over forty-nine years, her son Johnny (Cynthia), daughter Liesl (Jason Giorgio), two grandchildren, Rachael and Eddie, her brother Bob Hamilton, and her sister Janet Binne. An Army spouse, Sherry dedicated her life to her immediate family, and to the hundreds of military families throughout the world with whom she served, especially in times of conflict, when those families were most in need of assistance and a guiding hand to help them through their difficulties. She was a respected elementary school teacher with high, but achievable standards, and a love for learning that she passed on to her students, who always lived up to her expectations. The family will receive visitors at the Murphy Funeral Home, 4510 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, Virginia on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 from 2-4PM and from 6-8PM. A Celebration of Life Mass will be celebrated at the Fort Myer Memorial Chapel, 101 McNair Road at 1PM on Thursday, October 22, 2015. Interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery at a future date. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations in her name be made to the Sarcoma Foundation of America. https://www.curesarcoma.org/donate
