Sheryl was born October 5, 1946 in Butler, Missouri to Raymond and Cleta Ghere York.  She graduated from Butler High School in 1964 and continued her education at Central Missouri State University graduating in 1968 with a Home Economics degree.  While in college Sheryl became a sister in the Delta Zeta Sorority, Epsilon Gamma Chapter.  She was later awarded the Golden Rose in 2015 for 50 years of membership.  Sheryl taught Home Economics at Rich Hill High School from 1968 to 1970, where she met the love of her life, Darrell Fischer.  They were united in marriage November 28, 1969.  To this union two children were born, Travis and Heidi.  Sheryl spent most of her time raising her kids and keeping the home.  It wasn’t long before Sheryl’s good cooking caused Darrell to take up jogging.  Sheryl always supported her kids’ activities, even cooking the wildlife Travis managed to drag in.  She was dedicated, and had to work very hard to pass along her gift of home making to Heidi, whether it was through 4-H or much loved shopping trips.  Sheryl’s expertise and passion quilting and sewing led her to open the Lady Bug Fabric Store in Butler.  It opened on January 15, 1981 and closed temporarily in December of 1983 until September 15, 1986 it was reopened, closing finally in April of 1987.  After the closing of her shop Sheryl went to work at Medicalodge of Butler in 1989.  She worked as an Activities Director and later transitioned to Social Services until her retirement in 2003.  Sheryl enjoyed life and her family.  Some of the fondest memories were made on the trips to Branson or Stockton Lake.  She loved the boat rides and fly rod fishing, often catching the biggest fish.  It was along these trips that they met friends that soon became family.  Sheryl cherished her “Indiana family”.  The greatest gift in life Sheryl was ever given was her grandchildren, Dalton, Kylann, and Katie.  There wasn’t an activity, program or ball game that Sheryl missed.  She loved taking Dalton to his magic shows and Kylann and Katie shopping or going to their ball games.  She very much looked forward to the summer trips she and Darrell took with the grandkids.  They went exactly where the kids wanted to go, usually to a theme park, no matter the state.   Darrell and Sheryl were always by each other’s side through the thick and thin of 46 years of marriage. She was dedicated to her family and friends and will forever hold a memory in each of the lives she touched.  She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Greg York, and sister Raneta Sue.  Sheryl is survived by her loving husband Darrell Fischer of Butler, Son Travis Fischer of Butler, MO, daughter Heidi Tourtillott and husband Dylann of Rich Hill, MO, grandchildren Dalton Fischer, Kylann and Katie Tourtillott, sister-in-law Wanda Hamm and Husband Fred, Aunts Gerry Ghere and Ruth Fischer, Uncle Lonnie Lavern York, along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.

  11. What fun we had as neighbors and friends for 27 years on Hillcrest! The kids grew up together and life long friendships developed. Fun times in the neighborhood became the norm. Melody and Heidi once had us searching and calling the police when they were just visiting Ruth Wynes, our backyard neighbor. Travis and the girls played wiffle ball for hours in the yards. The biggest joke was when Melody took our remote control outside your window and kept changing the TV channels. Then Julie came along and it was time to watch another Fuller grow up. The older we got, the more we enjoyed Christmas and the trees and outdoor lights went up earlier every year. Sheryl and I decorated the trees and Lynn and Darrel put up the outdoor lights in early November. Sheryl taught me about Home Ec features such as formal and informal balance. Sheryl like everything in pairs and I was just the opposite. We could talk for hours about just anything and everything. Even though our beloved Sheryl and Lynn are no longer with us, the friendships and memories will remain for all of us. Love to all of you from Doris, Melody, and Julie Fuller.
