Veo Sherbert Obituary

Veo 'Louise' Sherbert born November 17, 1922 passed away peacefully Nov 4, 2023 at Sterling Village, Sterling, Kansas

Louise was the first born to Arthur and Nita Hay of Aurora, in rural Cloud County Kansas. She graduated in 1941 from Miltonvale High School Miltonvale, Kansas.

Louise married George Fredrick Sherbert, also of rural Cloud County Kansas, on June 9, 1941. Afterward, they moved to Wichita for George to work for Cessna Aircraft.

George, Louise, and son Larry moved to Hutchinson, KS as George was one of the first 50 Cessna workers sent to Hutchinson to open the new Cessna Fluid Power plant.

George was drafted in 1944 into the US Army Airforce.  After WWII, George, Louise, and 2 sons moved to Nickerson for George to work for Buel's Ford Garage. They bought some lots of land and built their home.

Louise was a member of Nickerson Homemakers club and PTA. Louise was a great cook at Slim's and Nell's restaurants and Nickerson Grade School.  She was a Girl Scout leader, bookkeeper for the family's Sherbert Auto Repair in Nickerson, KS, and worked at Wells Department Store's fabric dept.

Louise was a member of the Christian Church in Nickerson and renewed her faith and was baptised again in 1971. 

Louise retired in 1987 after 15 years of service at Cessna Fluid Power in Hutchinson, KS.

After retirement, Louise's mission in life was keeping in contact and caring for her family, loved ones, and friends.  She was relentless in sending cards and letters of encouragement. She knew every birthday and anniversary by heart, as well as her life-long friends.

Louise was an excellent seamstress, hobbied all sorts of creative crafts and did extensive genealogy research to preserve her family's history.

Louise was preceded in death by husband George, mother and father, brother Clarence Hay of Kansas, sisters; Virginia Pearman of Nevada and Barbara Tucker of Kansas and 2 sons, Larry Gene of North Carolina and Gary Lee Sherbert of Kansas.

Remaining are Louise's daughter, Tomisha and son-in-law, Gerald Pittman of Lyons, 8 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, 19 great-great grandchildren and 1-great-great-great grandchild.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
