Sherry Ann Tehrani, age 63, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on Saturday, September 5, 2020 shortly after sunrise. Sherry is survived by her adoring husband, Joe, of 40 years as well as her daughters Shema Tehrani Rizo (Joe), Candice Tehrani Trupiano (Samuel) and her son James Allen Lee (Teresa). She is also survived by her mother, Patricia Heatherly, and brother Cecil Heatherly, Jr. She was affectionately known as “Granny” to her seven precious grandchildren – Daniel Lee, Preston Lee, Gabrielle Rizo, Joseph Rizo, Soraya Rizo, Mia Trupiano, and Trevor Trupiano.

Sherry will forever be remembered by family and friends as the epitome of a mother. Her love for her children was unwavering. She was adored by many for her personality, profound resiliency, selflessness, strength and kindness. Sherry loved baking and cooking for her family, trying new recipes, spending time with her children and grandchildren, gardening, planting flowers, and watching her favorite TV shows, countless mystery movies and most importantly – Bobby Flay. Sherry was not just the life of a party; she was the party. She brought so much warmth, tenderness, joy and laughter to those fortunate enough to know her. She was a meticulous host and loved family gatherings and serving others.

Sherry did not wish for a visitation or funeral service; however, her family kindly requests prayers for their strength through this difficult time of tremendous loss, heartache and grief.
