Sherrie Lynn Jones Hugunin, the girl loved living, the girl that danced instead of
walking, the girl that had sunflowers for eyes, and fireworks in her soul. A Kindest
Kansas Citian Award Recipient and God loving mother of two passed on to
heaven December 28th, 2020 after a 15 year courageous fight with a rare
Cancer. Sherrie was born out of love and child number 6 from Pasadena, TX.
Her family relocated to Shawnee, KS in the mid-60’s. Sherrie is a 1978 graduate
of Shawnee Mission Northwest. Where she met her husband and shared 40
years of her love of God and her heart of gold with her two children and 5
Sherrie shared her beautiful smile while working in the mortgage, medical billing,
and human resources fields in the Kansas City area. The past 8 years, she has
spread her love for life and passion for the Lord while building her work family at
Mission Plumbing Heating and Cooling.
Sherrie enjoyed traveling to beaches and islands and became very fond of the
San Diego area and finding sand dollars there. However, her fondest of all was
sharing her smile and her never ending love and beauty with her 5 grandchildren.
