CROFT – Sherry Pauline, 45, of Liverpool, Queens County, passed away peacefully in Queens General Hospital on Friday, May 18, 2018 surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Liverpool, she was a daughter of Elva (Oickle) Croft (Brian Everett) of Western Head and David Croft of Milton.
Sherry had a natural talent for waitressing which she enjoyed doing for most of her working life. She loved running and biking in her spare time as well as her love of her cats. She will be fondly and lovingly remembered for her tough as nails attitude when faced with life’s challenges.
Surviving besides her parents are her companion Jeff Delaney; her “step daughters” Rebecca Delaney and Kate Inglis, both of Liverpool; her sisters Shelly Croft (Cory Francis) of Masstown and Sheila Croft of Seattle; her nieces Sonia Oickle (Shawn Lowe) and Jaime Westhaver and her great nephews Deacon and Tatum.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool. A private family graveside service will be held at a later date. No flowers by request. Donations may be made to the Queens County S.P.C.A. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com

Rest easy.

To Jeff and Sherry’s family members….As echoed by so many messages, Sherry was indeed a special individual. She was always so upbeat, positive, bright faced and interested in how you were doing. We could all learn so much in how she approached life and treated others. And beneath that big smile that she wore everyday, she was a trooper in the manner she dedicated herself to running and being active. Sherry’s memory will live on because she was such a shining star.
Through the tough days ahead, be comforted in knowing that her love of family members and of those close to her was a big part of her strength and who she was. We will miss Sherry.
So sorry to hear of Sherry’s passing. She was a great person. My thoughts are with the family.
