August 23, 1965 - September 14, 2012
Sharon Louise "Sheri" Meyers Grant, 47, of La Grange, passed away on Friday, September 14, 2012. She is at rest with the Lord and the long struggle is over.
Sheri was born on August 23, 1965 in Warren, PA, the daughter of Ramona Maxwell Wilbik of La Grange and her companion, Robert Braxton and Thomas C. Meyers and his wife, Mary of Warren, PA. She was a graduate of North Lenoir High School where she received prizes for her artwork. For 18 years, she was an award winning advertising representative with The Kinston Free Press.
Sheri had a very large collection of good friends and nobody was ever a stranger to her. She had great compassion and generosity and always took in the strays, cheered for the underdog and tried to be helpful to everyone. She had a very lively personality and she loved to talk. She was a good hostess and loved to cook and entertain. She loved swimming, travel, camping, the beach, canoe trips on the Neuse River and her beloved dogs she had through the years. Sheri also enjoyed board games and playing cards, especially King on the Corner. Her family was especially important to her and she will be greatly missed from the family circle. Sheri was preceded in death by her paternal and maternal grandparents, and her stepfather, Joseph Wilbik who died in 1992.
A service of remembrance will be held Sunday, September 16, 2012 at 5 p.m. from Rouse Funeral Home. Interment will be Monday at 10 a.m. from Fairview Cemetery.
Besides her parents and step-mother, Sheri is survived by her daughter, Lindsey A. Grant of La Grange; sister, Lisa Killette and husband, Wade of La Grange; brother, Thomas Meyers of La Grange; and a special nephew and niece, Joshua and Madison Killette. She is also survived by three step-sisters, Kim, Laura and Jenny; a step-brother, Danny; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
The family will receive friends Sunday following the service and at other times they will be at the home of Mr. & Mrs. Wade Killette, 4900 May's Store Road, La Grange. Online condolences may be expressed at www.rousefh.com. Memorials may be made to the Lenoir County SPCA, P.O. Box 1481, Kinston, NC 28503. Arrangements are with Rouse Funeral Home, La Grange.
