Sherry Beth Watson-Wendt was called to her heavenly home on 13 October 2023, while in St. David’s Heart Hospital of Round Rock ICU for 2 weeks, surrounded by her family.
Sherry was born on 04 January 1960, in Weimar, Texas. She is the daughter of Arline “Brandt” Watson and her husband Ernest. She married Shane Scherbig of Sealy, Texas and had 2 daughters, Christine, and Mandi. Sherry and her 2 daughters returned home to La Grange, Texas until 1999, when they became residents of Weimar, Texas.
While Residing in La Grange, Sherry and her daughters were active members of the First Baptist Church in La Grange, Texas. Sherry took great pride in driving the church van and picking up church members. She also sang in the choir and participated in many church activities.
Sherry was an amazing cook, her specialty being fried chicken, along with many other dishes. Sherry always made certain that all her neighbors and friends had food to eat and would commonly share her cooked meals with them. To her, the well-being of her friends and neighbors was the greatest concern, and she always made sure that their needs were met. She was quite talented in many ways. In her early years, her grandmother taught her how to sew, knit, and crochet. From these lessons, Sherry went on to make hundreds of blankets and leg throws, many of which would be donated to friends, the elderly, and those healing from cancer. Sherry was also a lover of all things related to the arts, and her talents were passed on to her daughters.
One of her biggest passions was hummingbirds. She always made sure to keep a full feeder outside her living room window so she could sit and watch them. She always made it a priority that her mother should also maintain a full feeder for the hummingbirds, so they could both share in their love of birds, butterflies, trees, and flowers.
Sherry was an extremely kind and caring soul, and everyone who knew her loved her for that quality. She never met a stranger in her life, but instead looked at every new person as a friend she just hadn’t met yet. She always provided for her children and loved her family unconditionally. She was an incredibly loving sister and will be missed greatly by all members of her family.
Sherry is survived by; her 2 daughters, Christine Scherbig of Weimar, Texas, and Mandi “Scherbig” Hurta and husband Marcus of Somerville, Texas; her loving sister, Brenda Watson of Weimar, Texas; her adoring brother, Robert Watson and partner Andrea of Holman, Texas; her caring parents, Arline “Brandt” Watson and Ernest Watson of Holman, Texas; her uncle, Ervin Brandt of Holman, Texas; her niece Rachel “Watson” Negrete and husband Guillermo, and their daughters, Lilliana and Tessa of California. Her nephew Wyatt Watson and partner Amy Crumley, and their children, Walker and Raelyn Watson and Caleb Frerich, of Smithville, Texas; and her many cousins that she loved with all her heart and soul.
Sherry is preceded in death by; her grandparents, Arthur Brandt Sr. and his wife Adeline of Holman, Texas; her aunts and uncles, Hubert Brandt and wife Virginia, Franklin Brandt, Arthur Brandt Jr. and wife Gloria, and Donald Brandt.
Sherry’s funeral will take place at the Weimar United Church with services performed by Pastor Jimmy Watson. After the funeral, Sherry will be laid to rest in the Brandt Family Cemetery in Holman, Texas.
