Scherry Louise Drinkwine (Reeder) of Wichita, KS, formerly of Delano, MN, passed away Wednesday, July 8, 2020.

Scherry was born in Wichita May 10, 1946. She moved with her family to California where she would meet and marry the love of her life, Allen Lee Drinkwine, in September 1967. Together they raised three children, Colette, Richard, and Heidi.

The family moved to Delano in 1976, to Howard Lake in 1982, and eventually to Kansas in 1989. Scherry and Allen had fond memories of Delano. They spoke of having coffee at the Road Runner Café, fishing at Lake Rebecca, and participating in the annual Fourth of July parade.

Scherry worked in quality control/training management for 26 years. She enjoyed going to thrift shops, garage sales, and collecting whatever struck her fancy.

After Allen died in 2005, Scherry moved to be near her children and grandchildren.

She entered a nursing home in 2019, and lived there until her death.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Allen Lee Drinkwine (1947-2005); best friends, Rebecca Motzko, Delano, and Carol Smith.

She is survived by son and daughters, Richard (Michelle), Heidi (Jasen), and Colette (Juan); 10 grandchildren, and many nieces, and nephews.
