Sherry Lynn Young, 74, of Anoka, MN, passed away Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at The Estates of Delano after a courageous nine-and-a-half month battle with stage four metastatic pancreatic cancer.
Sherry was born January 13, 1949, in Minneapolis, MN, to Wayne and Betty Hatrick. She was the second of eight children.
Sherry graduated from Howard Lake High School in 1968.
She married Robert (Bob) Young Sept. 21, 1969, after he returned from active duty in the Vietnam war. Then, they moved to Fort Meade, MD, and lived on the Army base for one year while Bob finished his time in the Army.
They moved back to Minnesota and settled in Cokato, MN, where they lived until 1994. Then, they moved to Annandale, MN, where they lived for 14 years.
In 2009, Sherry retired, and she and Bob moved to West Virginia for three years. They moved back to Minnesota in 2012, and after Bob passed away in 2013, Sherry began volunteering at the VA in the adult day health care unit. She loved volunteering her time to work with the veterans.
Unfortunately, when the pandemic hit, the adult day health care unit closed, and she was no longer able to volunteer.
Sherry loved her morning crossword puzzles and cups of coffee. She also loved antiques, collecting, and the occasional road trip she would take with her daughter to go find those treasures.
Sherry enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. No one would meet Sherry and not like her. She was truly an amazing person who will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her.
Sherry is survived by daughter, Angela Young; sisters, Trudy (Steve) Berg and Jody Hatrick; brothers, Mike Hatrick, Tom Hatrick, and Joe (Jenny) Hatrick; along with many nieces and nephews.
Sherry is preceded in death by her husband, Bob Young; son, Jason Young; parents, Wayne and Betty Hatrick; and sisters, Bonnie and Peggy Hatrick.
A funeral service took place Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at 11 a.m. at the Swanson-Peterson Funeral Home in Howard Lake, MN, with visitation one hour prior at 10 a.m.
