Sherri Wenger, 57
Born: April 7, 1955
Died: Sept. 9, 2012

Sherri K. Wenger, 57, of Dowagiac, passed away Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012, at her sister’s home.

Sherri’s life began April 7, 1955, in Dowagiac, the daughter of Kenneth E. and Betty L. (Mott) Wenger. She was earned her degree at Southwestern Michigan College in law enforcement and was employed by the Cass County Sheriff’s Department.

Sherri was the best at everything she did; she could paint beautiful pictures or build a house. She was a very handy woman and she had a hand in helping her children with their homes. Her biggest passions in life were animals. Sherri’s favorite place to be was on the farm with the horses and chickens. Her greatest joy was her family, which includes children, Krin (Craig) Harrison, of Sterling Heights, Joseph (Kelly) Zawisza, of Clinton Township, and Michael Zawisza, of Kalamazoo; four grandchildren, Emma, Noah, Brooke and Natalie; and sisters, Katherine (Ted) Hoekstra, of Dowagiac, and Bonnie (Phil) Miller, of Sawyer.

Her family will gather with friends Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Yazel & Clark Chapel, where her funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday with Pastor John Kasper.

She will be laid to rest in Riverside Cemetery.
