Freeman, Sarajean "Sherry"  
Sarajean "Sherry" Freeman January 18, 1937 - February 16, 2015 Sarajean "Sherry" Freeman, a long-time resident of Apple Valley, passed from this life and to her Heavenly Father on February 16, 2015 in Helena, Montana. She was 78. Sherry was born January 18, 1937 in Blue Island, Illinois; the third of four children born to Earl and Eileen Anderson. She grew up in Oak Forest, Illinois where she excelled in school and was promoted two years ahead of her age group. It was in her childhood church that Sherry began her lifelong walk with our Lord, Jesus Christ. She reared eight children in what she called a "yours, mine and ours" marriage with her late husband of 46 years, William D. "Bill" Freeman, Sr. Due to the health of their youngest child, the Freemans left Illinois in 1963 and moved to the warmer climates of the southwest. In 1967 the family settled down in Apple Valley which was their home for nearly 40 years. While tending to home and family, Sherry found time to pursue her love of the written word. She was an avid reader and a published author of Christian short stories and poetry. Her creative interests included logic puzzles, genealogy, music, painting, crafts, crochet and knitting. She truly enjoyed sharing these joys and her faith with her children and grandchildren. She rejoined the workforce after more than 30 years as a homemaker in the employ of St. Mary's Medical Center in Apple Valley where she worked until retiring. Years went by and her children scattered from coast-to-coast; so, in 2006 Sherry and Bill moved too. They went to Helena, Montana to be with their eldest son. Sherry was preceded in death by her husband, William D. Freeman, Sr.; her brothers, Leroy and D. Vincent Anderson of Illinois; and her son, John H. Booth of Apple Valley, CA. She is survived by her sister, Barbara Fisher of East Carbon, UT; sons, Gordon R. Booth (LT. Col. USAF Ret.) of Helena, MT and William D. Freeman, Jr. of Shelton, WA; daughter, Linda J. Gorman of Arnold, MD; step-children Cynthia Wolcott of Apple Valley, Billie Neininger of South Bend, IN, Joanne Cook of Livingston, MT, Susan Vadeboncoer and James Freeman of Beaver Dam, KY. She was blessed with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A graveside service for Sherry will be held 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, March 4, 2015 in Victorville. She will be laid to rest alongside her family at Victor Valley Memorial Park, Victorville, CA. Anderson Stevenson Wilke Funeral Home in Helena is in care of the arrangements.
