I knew Sherry at Western Oaks Elementary when she first began teaching. I can say she is truly everything everyone has said about her. Kind, generous, caring, and such a lovely woman and teacher. Her students, coworkers, and friends were so fortunate to have her in their lives. She will be greatly missed, and made a huge impact on all she knew. Sending ❤ to her family.

Zane, we grieve with you in the loss of Sherry. What a sweet, kind spirit she had. She had such an easy going personality. We had many trips together in our youth group.

I am so sad to read of the loss of Sherry. I first met Sherry in Caravans at Bethany First Church of the Nazarene. We were both in elementary school. Her mom, Carolyn was our Caravan leader. I loved Sherry and Mrs. McGarraugh from the first meeting. Sherry was so sweet, friendly, and welcoming and so was her mom. I remember using pre-made biscuits from a can to make the shape of a bunny rabbit and so many other fun

I had the privilege of being the small group leader for Sherry in the junior high youth group at Bethany First Church. Sherry, Laura, Jennifer and Gina were all part of the small group. I remember sleep ins at my house and times of just watching these precious young ladies search for their selves and strengthening their relationships with Christ. Sherry's smile and laughter has always remained a memorable feature. To know that she knew and walked with the Father is the dream of every youth worker. See ya later Sherry...job well done.

Hey Zane, This is Susan (Squire) Smith. I am sooo sorry for the loss of your beautiful wife. I want you to know that I'm thinking about you. You are such a dear friend of mine.

I remember meeting your wife for the first time one evening when Ben Lurie and I met you two at the bowling alley in the Gold Coast. It was obvious then that you two would be together forever. You hadn't been dating too long

I've had the pleasure of knowing Sherry for almost 20 years! She and her husband Zane gave me my first job as a babysitter to their two children, Carissa and Westin. I babysitter for them for many years and have had the pleasure to see the family grow as time went on. I have several fond memories of Sherry. There wasn't a soul on this earth who she didn't love. Sherry use to make blueberry cheesecakes for the kids. They

Many of us have been reflecting on our former co-worker and dear friend, Sherry McGarraugh Stapp. We used to tease Sherry and call her the kindergarten whisperer because she had such a way with children. Really, we should have called her the adult whisperer, too, because she had such a calming spirit. You couldn't be around Sherry and have a bad day at the same time because she wouldn't allow it. She saw the bright side of everything. She always

So many people have commented about your ability to teach reading - and that was an amazing skill. But you also also taught our children in your charge to accept and recognize their daily action's impact on other's feelings. I will never forget the time you took a plain piece of white paper and crumpled it in your hand and then tried to smooth it out as best you could. You said, "Will this piece of paper ever be the
