Sherry Grant McGRATH Obituary
McGRATH, Sherry Grant,

55, of Louisville, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 29, 2017 at Baptist Health Louisville with family and friends by her side. The determination and optimism she held throughout her life marked her struggle with cancer. She left this world loving, and loved, by many.

Born February 22, 1962 in Columbia, KY, to Pat and Joe Grant, she is survived by her loving husband of 30 years, Steve McGrath; children, Brett and Kayla; sisters, Julie Cowan (Brian) and Beth Ellison (Michael "Bo") and 5 nieces and nephews, Derek, Jake, Kylie, Haley and Emma.

After receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of Kentucky, Sherry worked passionately as a labor and delivery nurse for over 30 years, most recently as the Nurse Manager of Labor and Delivery at Baptist Health Louisville. Her compassion, selfless love, and devotion were a constant light for those who knew her.

Sherry was a devoted wife, daughter, mother, sister and friend. She will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched. She lives on in the many people whose lives she influenced for better, and the countless babies born under her care.

Funeral Services will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at Ratterman Funeral Home, 12900 Shelbyville Road, East Louisville with burial to follow in Calvary Cemetery. Visitation will be from 2-9 p.m. on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions in Sherry's name be made to the the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance or the Baptist Health Louisville NICU.
