On Oct. 5, 1963, Sherry married Bob Staloch at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Waldorf. They made their home on the Staloch farm, where they lovingly raised their four children. Bob and Sherry were members of St. Casimir’s Catholic Church and she enjoyed many years of working at Meryl’s Style Shop in downtown Wells. Sherry was a lifetime fan of her children and adored their spouses and her grandchildren.

Sherry had a beaming smile and a magical way of making others feel special by listening to them and laughing with them. She will be fondly remembered as a kind neighbor, a supportive mother, a valued friend, a loving grandmother and a caring aunt. Sherry loved fashion, friends, her faith and her family. Two of Sherry’s favorite things were being Irish and spending time with her grandchildren. Sherry was an inspiration to others and easy to love.

Sherry is survived by her children: daughter Tami (Mike) Staloch-Schultz of Lakeville, daughter Teri (Trish) Staloch of Lakeville, son Tim (Kim) Staloch of Maple Lake, son Ted (Maureen) Staloch of Austin, Texas; eight grandchildren, Kelsey, Kendyl, Tate, Teigen, Aiden, Sydney, Sawyer and Bo; siblings Barbara (Don) Robinson of Mankato and Bob (Dawn) Dinneen of Lake Quivira, Kansas; along with many nieces, nephews and countless friends.

Sherry was preceded in death by her husband, Bob; parents Len and Ardella Dinneen; and father- and mother-in-law Paul and Selma Staloch.
