Psalm 116:15 says “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints”
Sherris Lettner Marsh went home to be with the Lord peacefully in her sleep Christmas morning, December 25th, 2022. A celebration of her life will take place at Immanuel Bible Church on Monday January 16th at 2 pm.
Sherris Lettner Marsh was born in Bloomington, Illinois on March 12th, 1946 to Wesley and Doris Lettner. She loved her big extended family, speaking often of her aunties and in particular Aunt Rosie who was a great and loving Christian influence in Sherris’s life. Her childhood and young adult life was spent in Illinois including a time in the windy city of Chicago enjoying the work world and friends. But her adventurous and independent spirit led her to the west coast seeking new avenues for her bright future. She lived for a time with friends in San Diego and Santa Barbara, California and then moved up to Bellingham, Washington where she chose to settle, calling it home. Sherris was employed for 25+ years with the Bellingham school district as a student information coordinator. A few years after retiring Sherris moved to the Willows which was her home for 5 years enjoying the friendships of many. Sherris loved the Lord Jesus and often spoke “where would I be without Him.” As a member of Immanuel Bible Church for 30+ years, she served the Lord as Sunday school secretary for a number of years and as she loved children and desired for them to know the Lord Jesus, she delighted in serving in the Awana program for many years. Her persevering faith and trust in the midst of serious health issues was an encouragement to others. Sherris considered Immanuel her second home and was ministered to by many. She was an adopted member of the Anderson family and is survived by; Pauline Anderson, Eric and Kathy Anderson, Collins and Sarah Lawlor and their children, Silas, Ezra and Eleanor. Molly Anderson, Stephen and Leah Anderson and their son, James. Katrina Anderson, Peter and Lauren Larsen, David Anderson. Sherris counted each one as her very own and will be missed by them.
