Obituary for Bennie Sherrill

May 10, 1931 - August 21, 2017
Avon, Ohio | Age 86


Bennie Nell Sherrill (nee Gunter), 86, of Avon since 1956, passed away on Monday, August 21, 2017. Bennie was a charter member of Sheffield Church of God and an avid member of their Ladies Auxillary. She taught Sunday School, but most people knew her as the church clerk, a position she held for over 30 years. Bennie enjoyed gospel music, especially quartet music. In the early days of the church, she sang solos. These songs included "I'm Bound For That City" by Allison Durham Speer and "Until Then" by Stuart Hamblen. Today she is singing and worshiping the Lord, "As she strolls through the city of pure gold". She started Autumn Lites and volunteered for 13 years at Anchor Lodge. She attended many baseball and football games and concerts that her children participated in. She was very proud of her children. She is survived by children, Janice Carver (Gary), Randy Sherrill (Joy), Garry Sherrill, Belinda Pearce, and Donald Timothy Sherrill (Judy); 9 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; brother, McKinley Gunter; and aunt of many. She was preceded in death by her husband, Everett; parents, Dewey and Ethie (nee Moles) Gunter; and siblings, Edgar, Elmer, Alma, Mullinax, Eugene, and Clinton "Doe" Gunter, and Barbara Lou Davenport.
