Sherry Denton Farrington, 78, of Farmerville passed away Saturday, March 3rd, at the Arbor Lake Nursing Home after a lengthy illness.
Sherry was born in Spearsville, Louisiana, Nov. 21, 1939, to the late Neva “Rockett” Denton and J.A. “Aubrey” Denton of Farmerville. She was a member of the Ward’s Chapel Church of Christ for many years where her husband, Chuck, preached then later attended the Lillie Church of Christ where he preached until his retirement.
Sherry was thought of as a beautiful person to many on the inside and out. She was dedicated to the Lord and was a loving wife, mother and sister. Family was her main priority and she always looked forward to family gatherings. With an inquisitive mind about life, she enjoyed learning through reading and traveling, especially to the mountains. Through the years, she enjoyed many trips with her family as well as with dear friends, Dan and the late Totsy Albritton. Being an avid gardener, she always had a beautiful yard and loved her flowers.
In more recent years, Sherry was always ready for a “road trip”, loved to eat out, loved to karaoke with her family and was always singing a song. The last song she sang was “Mansion Over the Hilltop” where she will now be. She spent many happy days doing activities and sharing many laughs with her special friend, Linda Montgomery, of Marion.
Preceded in death were her parents and husband of 55 years, C.A. “Chuck” Farrington; brother Mickey Denton of Farmerville, Louisiana and brother-in-law Harold Farrington of Houston, Texas.
