Sheryl Louise White, the eldest daughter of David E. and Doris G. (Becker) Weibert, was born in Goessel, on Feb. 5, 1945. She passed away in the Newton Medical Center on Dec. 28, 2017, at the age of 72 years after a short battle with cancer.
Sheryl grew to womanhood on the family farm in the Durham community. She attended the one room country school known as the Warren School, southeast of Durham, for grades 1-5. She attended Durham Grade School for grades 6-8 and graduated from Durham High School in 1962 as class valedictorian.
Sheryl accepted Jesus as her savior as a young teenager and was baptized. Sheryl was very active in 4-H and school activities. After completing high school, Sheryl completed the secretarial program at Brown Mackie College in Salina.
Sheryl was united in marriage to Dennis L. White at the Methodist Church, Canton on Sept. 27, 1964. One son and one daughter, David and Susan, were born to this union.
Sheryl and Dennis made their home on a farm in western Marion County until they moved to rural McPherson County where Sheryl lived among her beautiful flowers and landscaping until her death.
Even though Sheryl was kept busy at one of her several jobs, she enjoyed being with her grandchildren at home, playing with them in the yard, or attending their school functions.
Sheryl dearly loved landscaping and multiple flower beds. She spent many days and nights planting, pruning and watering her extensive yard. Sheryl might have been at her happiest when she was sharing her lovely home with her family and friends. Purple was probably Sheryl’s favorite color because she was a devoted K-State sports fan. She also closely followed the McPherson Bullpups.
Sheryl loved music, especially piano and southern gospel. If Sheryl was in the house, she probably was playing one of her many gospel or piano CDs.
Sheryl was a very hard worker and held several jobs over the years in the Canton and McPherson communities. She is probably best remembered as her position of vice president of customer service at Home State Bank in McPherson. Sheryl was a stickler on service and customer satisfaction. She retired from the bank on Jan. 3, 2017. Sheryl was always known as a very warm, caring, and kindhearted person.
Sheryl was preceded in death by her parents, Dave and Doris Weibert. She is survived by her loving children, David L. (Nancy) White, Mt. Hope and Susan (Rick) Moscicki, Valley Center; grandchildren, Tyler, Brandon, and Jordan White and Matthew and Alex Moscicki; sisters, Marilyn Pierce, Concordia, Kimberly (Steve) Mohan, Topeka, David Weibert, Wichita, and Warren (Carol) Weibert, Manhattan, Kansas, and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life service will be held at 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, Jan. 3, at First United Methodist Church, McPherson with the Rev. Tim Kraft officiating.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to the McPherson Relay for Life in care of Stockham Family Funeral Home, 205 N. Chestnut, McPherson, KS 67460. Personal condolences may be sent to the family at www.stockhamfamily.com.
The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation for the many prayers and acts of kindness shown to Sheryl, David and Nancy, and Susan and Rick during Sheryl’s brief illness and passing.
