Sharon K. Starcher Luzader

Sherry Luzader, 52, of Parkersburg, passed away May 22, 2014, at Camden Clark Medical Center, Memorial Campus.

She was born July 24, 1961, in Parkersburg, the daughter of Josephine Taylor Whitlatch of Parkersburg, and the late Elmer E. Whitlatch.

Sherry was a previous owner of the Too Small Shop in south Parkersburg, and was a member of Bethany United Methodist Church. She was kind and generous, loved Elton John and had a skewed sense of humor.

In addition to her mother, Sherry is survived by her husband, Russell Luzader; three children, Nicholas Starcher (Sheri), Christopher Starcher and Erika Luzader; brother, the Rev. Ronald Whitlatch (the Rev. Cathy); sisters, Beverly Spiker (Mike) and Sandy Tritt (Butch); brother-in-law, Wayne Luzader; and her poodle, Sugar. She is also survived by nine nieces and nephews; three great-nieces; and a great-nephew.

A memorial service will be 4 p.m. Tuesday at Lambert-Tatman Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 400 Green St., Parkersburg, with Pastor Mike Broadwater officiating. Visitation will be 2-4 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home.

Sherry loved to make people smile. She asked that she be cremated and her remains placed in a Grecian urn. What’s a Grecian urn? Right now, about 400 Euros a week.
