Sheryl Ann Putnam

Sheryl Ann Putnam, 64, passed away peacefully at home Thursday, Sept. 3, surrounded by her family, and best friend of more than 55 years. A memorial service honoring her life will be held Saturday, Sept 4 at First United Methodist Church, 200 Pleasant Street Sturgis, MI at 2 p.m.

Sheryl was born Feb 26, 1951 in Coldwater, MI to Wilfred and Ruth Boes of Union City. She graduated from Union City High School in 1969, and pursued her career in cosmetology school.

Sheryl was a woman of many talents and abilities, owning a successful home decorating business and a graphics design store, in addition to working several years at Putnam Hitch Products before ultimately settling on her true passion of caring for others.

Her greatest endeavor was working in Sturgis as a home healthcare professional for several years. She also worked at Adapt in Bronson assisting the disabled. She possessed an uncanny ability to care for others and took great pride helping her patients seek comfort in their final days.

Sheryl's greatest joy in life was to be with her friends and family, and she lived her final days surrounded by loved ones. She also enjoyed camping with friends, dancing, attending her grandchildren's sporting events, riding the Harley with her boyfriend, Steve, sewing and making her famous candles.

Sheryl is survived by her children, Steve Robinson of Battle Creek, Sean (Chris) Robinson of Bronson, MI, Nicole Robinson of Sturgis, Jamie (Guillermo) Figari of Austin Texas and Jeremy (Melissa) Putnam of Austin; and her eleven grandchildren - Kelsey, Payton, Blaine, Kennedy, Hunter, Skylar, Cole, Mateo, Luca, Kayla and Logan; and her siblings, Bonnie (Boes) Prough of Union City; Gary Boes of Pennsylvania; Myrna (Clark) Fabiano of Alabama; Patricia (Clark) Rick of Union City, and many nieces and nephews. She will also leave behind her loving boyfriend, Steve Yoder, of Sturgis, and their two Jack Russell Terriers, Milee and Sadee, whom rarely left her side.

She is preceded in death by her parents and her younger brother, Roger.
