Mary Margaret Sherman

January 21, 1947 — January 1, 2023

To view live stream of funeral-click HERE (link will be live 12:45pm) Mary “Peggy” Margaret Sherman went home to be with the Lord she spent her life serving on January 1, 2023. Mary was born on January 21, 1947 to George Beard Sawyer and Mary Louise Davis, both of whom were veterans of World War II. Though born in Webster, Texas, she was a Louisianan farm girl through and through. Mary graduated from Bonita High School in 1965 and from University of Louisiana - Monroe (then Northeast Louisiana University) with a degree in Home Economics. Years later, she would return to school to earn her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Florida Atlantic University. She married Richard Sherman, Sr., who fell in love with a pretty blue eyed girl with dimples, and with whom she raised three kids and nine grandkids. While Mary made an indelible mark on many during her nursing career and working in hospice, her true passion and calling was in her role as a mother and grandma. After her kids were grown, Mary spent her time serving others through the church and Broward Outreach Center sharing the love of Christ with the homeless. She also spent her later years as a chaplain, ministering to people in nursing homes and hospitals. Mary was joyful and selfless. She loved sewing, flowers, football, reading the Bible, and all things colorful and beautiful. Her love of family was only surpassed by her love of Jesus, and she dedicated her life to loving both down to her last breath. In her final weeks she was comforted by Richard and Jill, who never left her side. She spent her last day surrounded by Richard, her children, grandchildren, and close friends, laughing, praying, and loving. Mary was reunited with her mother and father and a host of friends on New Years Day, 2023. She is survived by Richard A. Sherman, Sr.; her three children Ricky, Jill, and James; her three children in law, whom she loved like her own, Aimee, David, and Sarah; her nine grandchildren Dae, David, Olivia, Jacob, Lela, Charlotte, Macy, Jenna, and Riley; and her sister Joyce and Brother in Law Rick and their children and grandchildren, by whom she will be deeply missed.
