Obituary For Sherry Lee Keiner

FITCHBURG/MARSHALL - Sherry Lee Keiner, age 73, passed away at Meriter Hospital on Monday, May 15, 2023. Sherry was born on June 22, 1949, in Dodgeville, Wisconsin to Kenneth and Pauline (Voights) Tremelling. She grew up in Marshall and graduated from the high school in 1967. Shortly after high school she married her first love, Glenn Keiner on November 11, 1967. Sherry worked at multiple health care facilities as well as in home care. She took great comfort in her daughter, Angela, being so close after they moved to Fitchburg in May of 2020. She knew her daughter could be at their place in a matter of minutes and Sherry definitely took FULL advantage of this. Sherry never had a driver license but enjoyed being chauffeured around “Driving Miss Sherry”, going to The Pickle Tree in Deerfield for chicken wings & fries, juicy stories, watching soap operas, The Little House on the Prairie, The Food Network, chatting on Facebook, being teased by her son, Shawn, receiving visits from her daughter’s Angela’s daycare children, and especially hanging out with her own granddaughters Sydney, Cassidy, Grace, and Jenna. Sherry was also a pretty good cook, her homemade meals always hit the spot. We’ll never forget her homemade cinnamon rolls.

Sherry is survived by her many family and friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, May 27,2023, from NOON until 4:00PM at THE HIGHLINE SENIOR APARTMENTS, 2001 Traceway Drive, Fitchburg, in the Community Room.

    My daughter just informed me of Sherry passing. I met Sherry when she was taking care of my great grandmother. She cared for her for 7 -8 years if I remember correctly. We stayed in touch even after my gram passed away on 97. She's a wonderfully sweet woman. She was kind, empathetic, fun to talk to. I felt privileged to call her friend. When we would talk or write I called her "Sadie" and she would always giggle because that's what gram called her. She even watched my daughter for 6 months when my daughter was little (she's 30 now), and to this day calls her teacher Sherry, she loved that as well. She's in heaven now with grandma, and omg the stories they must be gossiping about!! I will miss her, but I will see you again Sadie. Rest in beautiful peace! Thank you for always being there in every capacity! The world lost a beautiful woman, but we all gained a guardian angel 😇

    i'm so sorry that Sherry had to leave us so soon and then wait for us to join her... we met her and glenn when we moved to wisconsin from south dakota and we welcomed her children into the world as she did some of ours.. we kept in touch over the years by writing letters, phone calls, and facebook.. she was such a pleasant person.... all my love and hugs to Glenn, the kids and grandkids will be thinking of you all... the day of her funeral would have been me and my late husbands 58th wedding anniversary.....

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
