Sherrie Ashenbremer, 64, passed away to join the Lord on Monday, July 18, 2022. She is survived by her husband John, of 32 years and their three children, Bradley, Kiersten, and Bryan. Sherrie was born on November 29, 1957, in Detroit Michigan. She was an only child of William and Edith Childs. Sherrie graduated from Western Michigan University with a BS degree in marketing. She then spent 27 successful years with Kraft Foods in sales before retirement. After retirement, she pursued her true passion of working with dogs. She spent several years volunteering weekly at MacKenzie’s Animal Sanctuary before finding her dream job at The Pack in Comstock Park, Michigan. While working at The Pack she formed many bonding relationships with dog owners and coworkers. Sherrie was an exceptional mother and wife, always putting others before herself. She often wrote handwritten letters to her family and friends and stayed busy during retirement. Sherrie left this earth with one final act of giving through organ donation to save lives of ones she never met. Her true and genuine heart will be missed by many. Her family invites all who would like to attend a celebration of Sherrie’s life on Saturday, August 6th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at Roth-Gerst Funeral Home located at 305 N Hudson Ave, Lowell, MI. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to be made to GoFundMe-Sherrie’s Mural Memorial. This will allow The Pack to paint a professional mural of Sherrie and a few of her own dogs on the wall of fame. Her passion for dogs will always be remembered and admired.

  7. Remember my friend with love in my heart. She was a one of a kind woman. Rest in peace my dear Sherrie.

  8. Wow, I didn’t know her well, but I had the privilege to work with her on her house repaint a year ago. She loved her purple doors! I think a lady that loves purple is passionate. She was easy to talk to, and great with her dogs. We talked about her going to Western, ( same place my daughter went).
    She was so nice, and John, as well. What wonderful people to work for.
    I thought I would see her again sometime this summer. What a shock.
    I hope she felt no pain. Too young.
    Everyone give John a hug.
    Sincerely, Scott the painter

She always told me she was hoping to see all her doggies in heaven. I hope she got her wish. Forever in my heart my sweet and wonderful cousin. I love you❤️❤️😥😥

  10. Sherry was a beautiful person with a beautiful soul. When I met her at “ThePack”, I could tell we were going to be friends. She was compassionate and caring to my fur babies as well as me! I will forever think of her when I take my babies to the dog park, for I know her spirit will be there! I will miss you Sherry, but I know our paths will cross again.

  11. I met Sherrie at the Pack where I was a customer. She was the nicest person, taking a genuine interest in the lives of all the dogs and customers. I enjoyed hearing about her past career and she generously listened to me talk about my work stresses. She left this earth far too early and she will be missed.

  12. Sherrie was so sweet to me when my dogs and I at the dog park she always would compliment me taking care of three Dalmatians, she was a very truly pure hearted woman touched many lives.

  13. I’ve known Sherri for 20 years. She was always very thoughtful and a good friend. A few days before she passed, she stopped me to let me know that one headlight was out on the car. We talked briefly and I told her I loved her and she replied in kind. I am so grateful God gave me that opportunity before she left us. Sherri was a good Christian and I have no doubt that she is in heaven with her beloved dogs. Miss you, Sherri.

  14. Debbie & I were devastated by the news of Sherrie’s passing. She was a beautiful, kind and caring person. We enjoyed getting together for breakfast when you and Sherrie were in Chicago. We have wonderful memories of getting together with both of you and Jose talking about the good old days.
    You and Sherrie will always be in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless you and your children during this difficult time.
