Sherry Elizabeth (Robson) Taylor

March 26, 1956 - April 10, 2018

Sherry passed away peacefully with her daughter and daughter-in-law by her side. Predeceased by her mum, Audrey and dad, Michael; Sherry is survived by her daughter Devon (Jill), grandson William, sisters Sally and Susan (Roland Sr), and 5 nieces and nephews - Roland Jr, Stephen (Amanda), Kendal, Brent (Dana) and Bryce. Sherry was always happiest when she was with her family.

Sherry had a feisty spirit that never dampened, regardless of what life threw her way. Her sense of humour, naughty nature, dirty laugh, infectious smile, and heart of gold made her a one of a kind woman.

The last year of Sherry's life was full of joy thanks to her grandson, William. William adored his Nana and her 'Hooray's!' will live on with 'her boy.'

Sherry poured herself into philanthropy for 30+ years, leaving an un-paralleled legacy behind her. She volunteered for organizations such as BC Children's Hospital, Vancouver Museum, York House School, Marpole Women's Auxiliary, and BC Lupus Society.

Sherry had an illustrious career in the jewelry industry. She started at Birks, moved to Gold Craft Jewelers, and eventually became a Corporate Buyer at Grassie Jewelers purchasing giftware, tableware and fine crystal. Sherry also designed countless pieces for her friends and family, possessions that they will treasure forever.

Thank you to the friends, caregivers, and healthcare providers who showed endless dedication to Sherry throughout her life. She had an incredible support system.

Sherry was an example to all of us to live life to the full, come what may. She had a great sense of fun and a wonderfully generous spirit. She will be missed. Condolences to Devon and family.

Sherry was in my English class in 1972, when she was Head Girl, and I came to know her well, as she was active in so many activities. She was wise beyond her years, giving thoughtful and mature insights to a variety of school matters. Sometimes she seemed to be a member of staff, which amused us. She shone with integrity and was a model for younger students and a credit to the school.
And as I recall, she was a member of a particular 'lively' bunch of girls.

Dear Devon and family,
When I think of your mom it's difficult to suppress a smile and a chuckle. What a unique character. So brave and cheerful. Such inner strength. Hilarious and mischievous. Giving, giving always giving. Devon, your mom was someone who astonished me and a woman I admired. I was so sad to hear of her passing. My deepest sympathies.

Dear Devon, Jill and Family
We loved your mom and enjoyed every minute we did get to spend with her on various YHS projects. Our daughter was honoured to win the Spirit Award in her name. Your mom raised the YHS market to new levels and people wanted to volunteer because she was so fun to work with! Devon, she was so proud of you and it must have been nice to have her in your corner since she was such a fan and "why not" kind of person. Our thoughts are with you. We will never forget her.

Dear Devon,
Although we have never met I feel I know you !
Your mom was so very proud of you and loved you to bits !
I first met Sherry at Sunday School ! To say we kept our Sunday School teacher on her toes would be a understatement! Although, our paths did not cross often over the passing years it was always a treat when they did !

Dear Devon and Family,
I was so sadden to hear that Sherry had passed away. What an incredible life she led! I will always remember the first day I met her at York House in 1994 and the friendship we had over the 23 years that I worked at York House. She was a role model to all that knew her; she taught us how to live one's life to the fullness and she overcame her life challenges by giving back to society with her tireless dedication to volunteerism. I will never forget her and my thoughts are with you and your family.

With deepest sympathies.
