Leslie M. Sherr Obituary
Leslie M. Sherr
Resident of Virginia
Leslie M. Sherr (Age 57)
Beloved wife of R. Kirk Sherr, died at home in Vienna, Virginia on April 22, 2014, following a long illness. Mrs. Sherr was born in Redwood City, California and spent her childhood outside of Kirkland, Washington. Leslie was an excellent student and determined early on that she would pursue an international career, receiving a B.A from Georgetown University and an MBA from George Washington University. Along the way, she studied in Mexico, Brazil, Portugal and Turkey and became fluent in both Portuguese and Spanish. Her career was always focused on helping others and included working for the U.S. Department of State and working on women's and children's health for international organizations. She was a lifelong volunteer and her efforts spanned everything from work in refugee camps in the Philippines to help for immigrant mothers in Northern Virginia. In recent years she was a real estate agent with Long and Foster in McLean, where she continued to excel despite her illness. Her vivacious personality, quiet determination and amazing culinary skills endeared her to all.
Mrs. Sherr is survived by her husband of 19 years, R. Kirk Sherr of Vienna, her children Erika and Nicholas, also of Vienna, her sister Rebecca, of Durango, Colorado and her mother Mary Lou, of Juanita, Washington.
A Rite of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday, May 1 at 11:00 a.m. at Holy Comforter Episcopal Church in Vienna, Virginia. Interment will follow in the Holy Comforter Columbarium with a reception to follow in McGill Hall. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be directed to the Boston University School of Medicine Amyloid Research Fund at www.bu.edu/amyloid/donate. Arrangements were entrusted to Money and King Funeral Home. Online condolences and fond memories of Leslie may be offered to the family at www.moneyandking.com.
