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.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Lupus Society (
