Sherrie Pfeiffer

Sherrie Pfeiffer, 81, of Mt. Pleasant, died unexpectedly on Friday, May 10, 2024 at her residence.

Sherrie was born January 31, 1943 in Mt. Pleasant. She was the daughter of Williard Hinchman and Ruth Marguerite (Kerker) Douglas. She attended St. Alphonsus School through the 8th grade and completed her education by graduating from Mt. Pleasant High School in the class of 1961. On December 14, 1961 at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, Sherrie was united in marriage to Luther Michael “Lou” Pfeiffer.

Sherrie began her working career at the Dream Drive-In restaurant in Mt. Pleasant. She then became a meat cutter at Dave’s Super Valu and then a cashier at Beaver’s Jack & Jill Market. For many years, Sherrie worked on the assembly line of the former Motorola and later Celestica Radio Companies until they closed their Mt. Pleasant operations. She had also worked for the former Continental Telephone Company in Mt. Pleasant and as a secretary for the Elgar Law Office.

Sherrie was a lifelong member of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, where she was a faithful member of the Choir. She volunteered at the Henry County Health Center at the front desk and escorted people to the various departments of the hospital. She was very adept in crocheting, specializing in prayer shawls and “beanies” for cancer patients to cover the loss of hair. Sherrie held a seldom-hidden fondness for Dairy Queen.

Those thankful for sharing in Sherrie’s life include her husband of 62 years, Lou of Mt. Pleasant; her children – Karrie (Brian) Laskay of Fishers, Indiana, Scott (Deanna) Pfeiffer of Mt. Union, IA, Nick (Janey Baylor) Pfeiffer of Mt. Pleasant and Heath Pfeiffer of Mt. Pleasant; a brother, Jack (Connie) Douglas of Bremerton, WA; 9 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren, and was expecting the birth of her ninth great grandchild.
