Sherry Lynn Wilkinson

August 31, 1967 - November 27, 2023

08/31/1967 - 11/27/2023

Sherry Lynn Wilkinson, born on August 31, 1967, in Pennsylvania, has bid us farewell on November 27, 2023, in Norfolk, VA.  Sherry had the incredible ability to brighten up any room with her wit and charm, leaving a lasting impression on everyone she encountered.

After retiring from Verizon, Sherry dedicated her time to pursuing her passion for arts and crafts. She found great joy in sewing, knitting, and creating beautiful pillows, blankets, and other handmade treasures. Her talent and creativity were truly remarkable, and she infused love and care into every stitch.

Sherry’s zest for life was infectious, and she spread laughter wherever she went. She had an uncanny ability to find humor in even the most mundane situations, always ready with a witty remark or a playful quip. Her quick wit and sharp sense of humor made her the life of any gathering, leaving those around her in stitches.

Sherry is preceded in death by her parents, Danny and Mary Kent Sugden; her beloved husband, Donny Wilkinson; her daughter, Shelly; as well as her aunts and uncles, Alice, Bernice, Adoff, Fred, Raymond, and Paul. While we mourn her loss, we take solace in knowing that she is now reunited with them in eternal peace.

She leaves behind a multitude of cherished memories for her surviving family and friends to hold dear. Her son, Joshua Gilbert, will forever carry her spirit in his heart. Sherry is also survived by her sister, Michele Sugden, and her brothers, Kevin (Marcie) Sugden, Brian (Kathy) Sugden, and Danny Sugden. Her grandchildren, Natalie, Kaydence, Blake, Brantley, and Braydon, were the apples of her eye, and their lives were filled with her love and affection.

In honor of Sherry’s vibrant life, a celebration will be held at a later date in Pennsylvania. We will gather to reminisce, share stories, and pay tribute to the incredible woman she was. Sherry’s legacy of love, laughter, and creativity will forever live on in our hearts.

Though we mourn her departure, let us remember Sherry Lynn Wilkinson for the bright light she was and the joy she brought into our lives. May she find eternal peace and continue to make the heavens resound with laughter.

Altmeyer Funeral Home, Southside Chapel, 5033 Rouse Drive, Virginia Beach, VA is honored to be assisting the family.
