Sherri Lynn Urcavich Lecturer, Mathematics 5/2014

Sherri Lynn Urcavich, 64, Pulaski, went to be with the Lord after a long, hard fought battle with cancer on Monday, September 7, 2015. She was born in St. Clare, MI on Aug. 14, 1951 to Beryl and Audrey Ann Amburgey. Sherri graduated in 1973 from Grand Valley State University. She married Greg in June of 1975 and they have been happily married for 40 years. Sherri taught school for over 42 years. She was an active member of Green Bay Community Church, the community, St. John's and youth groups. 

She was an amazing, beautiful, behind-the-scenes, feisty, yet sweet and loyal woman. She was smart, dedicated, diligent, hard-working, strong, creative, and modest. Sherri was passionate about living well; she valued the little things, the things that often go unnoticed. She was thoughtful and brave. She was such a wonderful role model to so many throughout her life, as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, friend, and so much more. It was hard not to love Sherri. She will be greatly missed. 

Survivors include her husband, Greg; children, Jennifer L. Urcavich; Katherine (Joe) Drust; grandchildren, Christian, Denalyn, Anya, Alysse, Emma, Audrey, Addison; her parents; brothers and sisters, Larry (Denise) Amburgey; Linda (John) Holmes; Tim (Tammy) Amburgey; in-laws, Judy (Jerry) Price; Joe (Arlis) Urcavich; Cindy (Gary) Weberg; Randy (Laurel) Urcavich. 

Sherri was preceded in death by Al and Grace Urcavich, Harvey and Florence Scott, Jackson L. Drust. 

Family and friends may call at the Green Bay Community Church, 600 Cardinal Lane, Howard, on Sunday, Sept. 13 from 4 until 5:30 p.m. Funeral Service 5:30 p.m. at the church. Online condolences welcome
