ESSEX - Born 1944, in Cambridge, N.Y., Sherry Ann Moses Somerset passed away in Essex on May 17, 2013, at the age of 69, following a courageous battle with cancer. Sherry grew up in Eagle Bridge, N.Y., where she was the eldest of seven children, and a 1961 graduate of Cambridge Central School in Cambridge, N.Y. Sherry was predeceased by a sister, Carol, and her father and mother, Carl and Shirley Moses. Sherry is survived by her loving husband, Richard "Dick" Somerset, of 47 years. She met Dick while attending Plattsburgh College (SUNY). They were married in Hoosick Falls, N.Y., on Dec. 18, 1965. Sherry is lovingly remembered by her two sons, Chad and wife, Theresa, and their two children, Chelsea and Garrett, of Essex Junction; and Todd and wife, Beth, and their daughter, Edie, of Hampton, N.H. She is also survived by her siblings, Gayle Hahn and husband, Norm, Cindy Gottry and husband, Ken, Richard Moses and wife, Kathy, Nancy Alexander, and Sue Akin and husband, Rick; and many nieces and nephews. Sherry was an elegant woman and although she had many hobbies during her years, she will be most remembered as a passionate gardener. She spent many hours in her gardens tending to not only her own flower beds, but many within the community. Sherry loved having her family together sharing stories and she loved to laugh. She made a lot of friends in the Essex community and she continued to smile throughout her battle with cancer. Sherry was an Assistant Librarian at the Essex Free Library in Essex, until her retirement in 2012, and she was a Friend of the Library for over 30 years. The family would like to thank all the great people at Vermont Center for Cancer Medicine and the VNA for all their compassion and support. She will be missed greatly by all. Per her request, there will be no visiting hours. A funeral service will be held with family and close friends at the Essex United Methodist Church on Wednesday, May 22, 2013, at 11 a.m., with a celebration of her life following shortly after in the lower meeting area at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Committee on Temporary Shelter at www.cots online.com; the Vermont Food Bank at www.vtfood bank.org; or the Visiting Nurse Association atwww.vnacares.org.
