Sherry was born and raised in the Wedgeworth Community, going to school there until the rural schools went to Timpson. Growing up on Saturday nights, the Churchman sisters could be heard singing on the radio, they would also sing at church and funerals when requested. She attended church at Highway Tabernacle and Corinth Baptist Church. She kept on singing her specials for as long as she was able. In the summer of ’58 she met the love of her life, Billy Bob, who tagged her with the nickname “His East Texas Pine Knot.” The summer of ’59 they were married on the family farm. They started their family and had three kids; Robert, Ben, and Linda. Sherry had careers from making screens to sewing robes for Sears and Roebuck, working in the public from selling fish, gas to hamburgers. She was known by many names Sherry Ruth, Mama, Gee, Granny Sherry, and Yah Yah, the greatest of all was caregiver she served so many in the most difficult seasons of their lives, the phone rang and she went with love and a willing heart. She loved to cook, go camping, playing 42, and skipbo. Some of her favorite sayings were “Happy Tears”, “Love you more”, and “Boo, I gotcha you.” To say she will be truly missed doesn’t even come close… 84 will never be the same without her.
Sherry is survived by her children, Robert Frazier, Ben Frazier, and Lind Todd and her husband, Joseph; grandchildren, Jacob Todd and wife, Leigh, Lyndsay Williamson and husband, Jordan, Samuel Todd, Chris Hollnagel, Kelly Frazier, Kelsey Frazier, and Thomas Frazier; 16 great-grandchildren; numerous nephews and nieces; and special “second daughter”, Donna Cargill.
