Sherrill "Sherry" Kay Vanderslice

( October 24, 1951 - January 20, 2024 )

On January 20, 2024, heaven gained a beautiful angel as our beloved Sherrill Kay (Barnett) Vanderslice passed away surrounded by her family.

Sherry had the most beautiful soul and was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, daughter, and friend. Sherry went to heaven to watch over us all and will be forever in our hearts. Sherry was the light of our lives and she loved everybody she ever met and loved to talk to everyone even if they just met.

She was born in Atchison Kansas on October 24, 1951, to Bob and Rosemary (Tuley) Barnett and grew up in Effingham with her older sister Lana Jo Barnett. She attended ACCHS school system and after graduation she met the love of her life Jake Vanderslice. Sherry went on to mother 3 children in Horton Kansas: RC, Kelli Jo, and Lucas. Sherry was a housewife, home maker and worked various jobs in Horton, Hiawatha, Atchison, and Golden Eagle Casino.

Sherry loved attending all her children and grandchildren's sporting events, plays, concerts and traveling to see her other grandchildren in California. Sherry loved to travel, explore, and experience new things in California, Chicago, Indiana, Texas, Las Vegas, Florida, and Branson which was her favorite place to take a vacation. Sherry was always extremely sociable and loved talking to the people around her rather they were co-workers, hospital staff, strangers, or friends she had known for a long time, and she was so genuine in wanting to know how you were doing or how your family was. Sherry loved to laugh and have fun especially around her favorite holiday, Christmas, where she loved to make it special for all the family. She loved family gatherings at the various camping spots with Mom and Dad to just simple little cookouts when her kids and grandkids could come home and visit. Sherry's smile and laughter were always so contagious and loud that it warmed the soul. Sherry lived such a beautiful full life that was filled with love and joy and will be forever missed. We loved her with all our hearts and are truly blessed that we had her in all our lives.

Sherry was proceeded in death by her parents Robert Allen Barnett and Rose Mary (Tuley) Barnett, Majorie Ennis (Radar) Brown.

Sherry was survived by her husband George Gordan (Jake) Vanderslice, Children RC Vanderslice, Kelli Jo Zeigler and husband Kent Zeigler, and Lucas Travis Vanderslice and wife Ricki Rae Vanderslice.
