Biography: SHARON D. DAVIS SHERRILL-Sharon D. Davis, 80, passed away Thursday June 3, 2020, in the comfort of her own, home with her daughters by her side. Born on August 2, 1940, in Eaton, NY, she was one of three children born to Mervin and Margaret Chamberlain Denny. Sharon graduated from Morrisville-Eaton High School in 1958. A month later, on July 11, 1958, Sharon married Raymond E. “Butch” Davis, first settling on a farm before moving to Sherrill in 1961. Butch died on August 20, 2011. Sharon was very active in sports at Morrisville-Eaton High School, and this carried into adulthood. She and her husband were on bowling teams and participated in Pop Warner football together, earning Sharon the nickname “Sarge.” Sharon’s passions included reading, ceramics, and quilting. She also enjoyed babysitting and dining out with Butch, family, and friends. Butch and Sharon enjoyed many rides together in their Cadillac, stopping for ice cream or visiting others. They absolutely adored their daughters and granddaughters and their great grandchildren brought her so much joy as well. Throughout her life, Sharon was very devoted to and involved with her church, first with Plymouth Church then Plymouth Alliance Church. Sharon’s generosity was unsurpassed. There was an open door policy at her home, and she planned a large meal for any occasion. She was “Aunt Sharon” to so many, no matter the relation. Sharon is survived by her daughters Pamela Lee Davis, Lynn Ann Davis, and Cheryl "Sherry" Rae Jeffris; grandchildren Kayleigh (Joseph) Mittelstaedt, Shelby (Edward) Ackerman, Lacy Janowski, Stacy Coleman, and Taylor Jeffris; great grandchildren Edith and Henry Ackerman and Jax Coleman; sisters-in-law Esther Davis, Ginny Davis and Nancy Denny. She is also survived by long-time friends Lois Seamans and Jan Schmidt, plus many classmates. The family wishes to send a thank you to her daily caregivers, Ernestine Anderson and Laura Diddle, as they wouldn't have been able to care for her without them. She was predeceased by her, beloved son-in-law, Gregory Jeffris, brother, William “Bill” Denny, sister, Judy Denny, brother-in-laws Richard Davis and Douglas Davis, and nephew Kip Denny. Funeral services will be held 11 AM, Tuesday from the Plymouth Alliance Church, Sherrill with the Reverend Kurt Johnson, officiating. Interment will be made in the Welsh Church Cemetery.

Dear Pam, Cheryl and Lynn,
Please accept my Heartfelt Sympathy to the passing of your Mother. Sharon could certainly fix the best treats whenever we were there. I miss your Dad Ray as well. He, Ray Rudolph and I spent many an hour together at Plymouth Church over several years. I know Sharon is now with our Lord and I know you all will have such good memories of family times together. May the Lord bless you all in this time of sorrow.
