Sherlyn "Sherry" Buffington, 56, of Farmington, passed away on Thursday, March 27, 2014, in Farmington. She was born Feb. 12, 1958, in Denver, Colo., to Ruby and LeeRay Perry.
Sherry was always actively involved. She enjoyed playing sports, racing and singing. After being diagnosed with MS, she advocated for individuals with disabilities and worked with several organizations.
Sherry valued family and friends. Her grandchildren, Chris (14), Cody (9) and Madalyn (8) Fowler and Liam Turnbull (days old), were her whole world. She was beautiful on the inside and out, she fought with admirable strength and will be missed greatly. Throughout her Bible, one message was found repeatedly: "I am healed by faith."
Sherry was preceded in death by her mother, Ruby Perry. She is survived by her daughters, Michelle (Chris) Fowler and Stephanie Buffington (fiancé Josh Turnbull); her father, LeeRay Perry; her sisters, Pam (Doug) Bailey and Shelly (Rick) DiNicola; and four grandchildren.
