Sherry was preceded in death by her son, Ronald Allen Hardy, Jr, her father, Louis Roosevelt Favorite, Sr, her Papa, Robert Favorite and her Granny, Elsie Lowery.

Sherry leaves to cherish her memory, her loving and devoted son, Ryne Allen Hardy and the light of her life, grandson, Fisher Allen Hardy. Also, left to treasure many years of life together, her boyfriend, Donnie Barnes. Sherry enjoyed the many years spent at her shop with her mother, Annie Favorite. Sherry was the oldest of six girls and one big brother, all of whom loved her immensely. Louie (Vicky) Favorite, Mary Lou (Rick) Bird, Nancy (Geri) Pelfrey, Linda Kay Favorite, Lisa Favorite (Cliff Alegre) and Susan (Jason) Jernigan.

Sherry put everyone else before herself. She proudly contributed to the Cordova Mall Ball and the Krewe du YaYas in their fundraising efforts. Sherry could put a smile on anyone’s face, either by being silly or making yummy goodies. Sherry took great joy in teaching the Children’s Cake Classes each summer. She watched proudly as the children grew and their talents developed. Sherry was a fighter and a hard worker.

She fought hard and won her battle with cancer twice.

Proudly serving as pallbearers are Heath McNair, son Ryne Hardy, and her nephews. T
