Mrs. Kaiser was a 1948 graduate of Edon High School and a 1951 graduate of Riverside Nursing School in Toledo, Ohio. After many years of being a homemaker and raising her children, she joined the staff of Hamilton Community Schools, Hamilton, Indiana, as the school nurse.

She was also a charter member of the Edon Emergency Medical Service, serving a number of years as an EMT. Sherrie was a faithful member of the Edon United Methodist Church, where she was active in the church choir, Sunday school, God’s Gals, mission committee and many other activities. She was an avid reader and a member of the Friends of the Library in Edon. When she wasn’t reading, she was involved in sewing, quilting and visiting shut-ins and friends, bringing food and cheer to their day.
