Sherry Lynn Gravatt Morimoto Notice
Dec. 17, 1946 - July 12, 2018 Vallejo Sherry Lynn Gravatt Morimoto, 71, of Vallejo, passed away peacefully from lung cancer on July 12. Sherry was born on Dec. 17, 1946 in Fullerton, CA. She graduated high school in Redding. Sherry has always been a caregiver, both as a volunteer and as an employee. She was passionate about children. Although Sherry was very small in stature, she was a tiger when it came to her convictions. She was the ultimate mama bear and protected her daughters fiercely. She was particularly bothered by any form of injustice, but specifically angered by the mistreatment or abuse of any child. Perhaps her best attribute is that she not only voiced her opinion about such injustices, she acted on them. There are many children and adults all over that were cared for, fed, comforted and protected at one point or another due to the actions of this very small, yet powerful lady. She was most recently involved as a volunteer at the Vallejo Police Department. It gave her great joy and pride to be a part of the VPD volunteer team. She trained volunteers and received many awards. Her greatest joy was participating in community events like free backpacks for kids, Coffee with Cops, and providing picture ID's for children. A memorial contribution to the Volunteer Program at the Vallejo Police Department, 111 Amador St., Vallejo, CA 94590 can be made in honor of Sherry. Sherry is preceded in death by her parents, Bobbie and Richard Wagner and her brother, Dennis Doane. Sherry is survived by her daughters, Renee Gravatt Davis and Julie Gravatt Leonard; her grandchildren, Justin Davis, Lindsay Davis, Kristine Rothwell, Josh Leonard, Shane Leonard, and Grady Leonard. In addition, she is survived by niece, Tara Gibson; nephews, Jerry Gravatt and Christopher Adams; great niece and nephew, Natalie and Bryce Gibson, and countless dear friends. The family would like to express our thanks for the wonderful help and care given by Mona Tatum, the ultimate lifelong best friend and to her loyal friends who loved her and made her smile. Sherry had a huge heart and was always willing to help those in need; she will be sorely missed and her legacy of caring will live on. Friends are invited to attend a "Celebration of Life" at the Benicia Yacht Club, located at 400 E 2nd St., Benicia, CA 94510 on Sunday, Aug. 12 from 1 to 4 p.m.
