A longtime cosmetologist and hairdresser, she celebrated 50 years of service at her recent retirement party this past March. Following her schooling in 1964 at Ohio State School of Cosmetology, she began her career at the Oakland Hotel in Marysville, working at Peggy Caldwell’s hair salon. During her years of service, she also worked in Bellefontaine at Sara Jane’s and at Empress Beauty Salon and for P.J. Shirer in Marysville. She retired from Shear Expressions Salon, where she partnered with Deanna Fee after 16 years.
She was a longtime member of Marysville First United Methodist Church, where she served on the board of trustees and was a member of the Emmaus community. She also was a member of Memorial Hospital of Union County Auxiliary and Twig 8.
During the late 1970s and 1980s, she enjoyed traveling around the United States with her daughters, Amber and Alissa, showing American Paint horses.
She was a Longaberger basket consultant for 24 years.
Above all, she will be lovingly remembered for her “Sherie Wisdom” counsel and advice and for her deep devotion to her family and friends.
A memorial service celebrating her life, I Love To Tell The Story, begins at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 18, officiated by the Rev. Aaron Brown at Marysville First United Methodist Church, at the corner of Sixth and Court streets, followed by a luncheon in the Burnside Family Life Center.
