Sherry's battle with Parkinson's disease and cancer is now over December 18, 2012. She may now rest in peace.
Sherry spent over 35 years in the Real Estate industry and was well respected as an industry leader, and for her dedication and professionalism. She believed in further education and she was an instructor for the Canadian Real Estate Association, the Alberta Real Estate Association and the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton. Sherry served as RAE President in 1997, was President of Edmonton Realtor Charitable Foundation in 2000, and AREA President in 2006. Sherry was a life member in both AREA and RAE and was RAE REALTOR® of the Year in 2002. Sherry was a tireless volunteer and served as a Governor on the Alberta Real Estate Foundation until earlier this year when her health failed her. Sherry was Broker and co-owner of Coldwell Banker Panda Realty with her husband Tom.
