Albert, Sherry Lynn* - Kennett Square  
Sherry Lynn Albert of Kennett Square Sherry Lynn Albert of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania passed away on Monday evening, April 20, 2015. She was 66 years old. Born and raised in Kennett Square, she was the daughter of the late Robert Messick and the late Evelyn Major Messick. After graduating from Kennett High School in 1966, Sherry began her life devotion to the deaf. Although her first introduction of formal training began at the John Roberts Powers School of Modeling, her dharma training matriculated at Gallaudet University under the direction of Gil Eastman and Malzhuhn, where her skills in non-verbal communication and reverse interpreting were certified. This pilot program was the first in the country to formalize the instruction of interpreting. During her time at Gallaudet, Sherry was certified at the Registry Interpreters for the Deaf in Silver Spring, Md., where expressive interpreting and translating was being defined in curriculum. Sherry would further her education through many programs and studies at Temple University, University of Pennsylvania, Orleans Technical Institute and West Chester University. In 1973, she began her professional career for the Deaf Hearing Communication Center in Springfield, Pa. She would continue to teach ASL at Elizabethtown College for 30 years. Sherry was a free lance interpreter to a myriad of areas in society. She signed in the educational system at the high school and university levels throughout the region, the prisons and legal court system for civil, family and criminal proceedings in Chester, Delaware, Bucks, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania. She also provided interpretation in the Delaware prisons, criminal, civil and family court systems as well as for numerous Delaware police departments. She signed in the District, Federal and State Supreme Courts. Sherry would be called upon by physicians, hospital administrators and medical consultants to be that bridge for those in need. Her audience expanded into conferences, professional workshops, fundraising telethons and numerous types of television shows. Whether it was a community event, museum events, school graduations, local productions and even wedding ceremonies, Sherry was there, at the corner of the stage or platform delivering the message to those watching for her words. Sherry’s presence was requested by President Carter and President Reagan to attend and participate in the annual meeting of the President’s Committee on Employment of the Handicapped. The list of those can go on and on…PA Governor Dick Thornburgh, Mayor Rizzo and Mayor Goode, President George HW Bush…all looked to Sherry to help deliver their message. During the 1992 Presidential campaign, then Governor Bill Clinton would make the request that Sherry be available as he came to the region. The list of awards for Sherry’s dedication goes beyond the ones listed. It seems that the “Service to Mankind” awarded by the Lancaster Sertoma Club says it all! She was bestowed a Lifetime of Achievement from the PA Society for the Advancement of the Deaf, “Interpreter of the Year from the PA Registry and Greater Pittsburgh Registry of Interpreters. Her profession consumed her life journey. She enjoyed participating in regional theatrical productions that encompassed dance along with signing, many which she coordinated. In her words, “the emotional wear and tear of dancing along with sign language is like screaming without using your voice”. Her performances in Sounds of Silence, Ah Wilderness, Richard Sumerak’s Summer Vacation, The Prophet, A Summer’s Tale and McArthur’s Park are just few of the heartfelt performances of Sherry’s. Sherry was the Director of the Counseling Service for the Deaf in Lancaster, she served as President of PA Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. She was member of the National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, NJ Registry of the Interpreters of the Deaf, Delaware Registry of the Interpreters of the Deaf, Philadelphia Registry Of the Interpreters of the Deaf, National Association of the Deaf, PA Society for the Advancement of the Deaf and the York Association of the Deaf. She was the beloved mother of Lynnette Albert and Nathan Albert and his wife Jacy Arrison; grandmother of Alayya, Valencia, Mercedi, Savana, Rylan, Ginger, Isla, Fallon and Declan; and sister of Robert E. Messick, Jr. and his wife Pat. Per her request, services will be private.
