After fighting cancer with the courage of a lioness, Sherry Ann Bradbury returned to her Heavenly Father as she passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her loving family on October 2, 2015.
Sherry is the middle child of Melvin and Ruby Graber, born on July 29, 1952. She was raised on the “farm” in rural Harvey County, Kansas with her four brothers; Melvin, Ardth, Dennis, and Mark. She graduated a true wildcat of Moundridge High School in 1970 and went on to attend Bethel College.
On August 28, 1971, Sherry married her high school sweetheart, Steven H. Bradbury. They were then sealed together for eternity in the Salt Lake City Temple on June 13, 1977. Together they had four sons; Aarron, Jarrod, Steven, and Kristopher. She was an amazing wife and nurturing mother, who created a loving home centered on love, respect, and honor.
Sherry had a great love of music and loved playing the piano. At a young age, Sherry developed a passion for reading and she could always be found with a good book. Her greatest love though, was spending time with her family and attending her grandchildren’s events where she could always be heard shouting words of encouragement.
Sherry is survived by her husband, Steven H. Bradbury; four sons, their wives, and children. Aarron and Julie (Konold) Bradbury and their children Riley S. and Mia B., Jarrod and Alana (Hovey) Bradbury and their children Jordan P. Evans, Damian J. Bradbury, Jayli J. Evans, Dillon C. Bradbury, Aidan J. Bradbury, Ryder D. Madsen and Talia A. Bradbury, Steven R. and Jennifer (Blake) Bradbury and their children Zakery J. Mitchell, Whitney T. Mitchell, Steven R. Bradbury Jr., Ethan R. Bradbury, and Hudson R. Bradbury, and Kristopher and Tarese (Pepito) Bradbury.
Sherry was preceded in death by her father Melvin Graber.
The family would like to thank the physicians, nurses, and staff at IHC Cancer Center and Dixie Hospice who worked tirelessly and loved Sherry (who fought with the Heart of a Lion) during this battle. We would also like to thank the many friends and family who helped out and shared their love in Sherry’s final days.
In lieu of flowers, an account has been established on behalf of Sherry Ann Bradbury at State Bank of Southern Utah.
