Sheryl was born May 15, 1953, to Lloyd and Emma Jane Johnson in Minneapolis.

She was a loving mother to her sons, and grandmother to her grandchildren.

Sheryl was a “crafter,” and enjoyed all kinds of crafts, including flowers, dried flowers, beads, cards, painting and reorganizing – making something for people was a passion. She also enjoyed having a good time, but also valued long walks by herself.

She was preceded in death by her sister-in-law, Marcia (Gunia) Oschenbauer.

Sheryl is survived by her sons, Chad and his wife, Shelby, and Jeremy and his wife, Karna; the boy’s father, Mark Gunia; grandchildren Veda, Laken, and Noah; parents Lloyd and Emma Jane Johnson; siblings and brother-in-law Douglas Johnson, Scott Johnson, Kimberly and David LeClaire, and Todd Johnson; as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
