Sherrie Johnson Baird, 62, of Flowery Branch passed away on February the 11th in the comfort of her home. She was in the presence and care of her loving family. She was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in October of 2018. With God’s help, she fought the disease with an overwhelming amount of strength until the very end.
Sherrie was born in Great Lakes, Illinois on July 3, 1957, and from there lived all over the US as a military brat. The daughter of the late Ted and Wanda Collins, she is survived by her daughters, Jennifer and Lisa Baird; a sister, Debra Greene; two nieces, Crystal Bellew, and Stephenie Fountain; and her grandson, James Jude Thompson.
Sherrie set the standard as a star employee, diligently working hard even through chemo and radiation treatments. She became an avid knitter, and would amaze most with the beautiful pieces she made. Traveling was another one of her favorite things, and she did so leaving a few of her footprints each place she journeyed. She will be forever loved and remembered.
