Sherri (Wilson) Rasmussen
Sherri (Wilson) Rasmussen of Lancaster, Ohio, entered into eternal rest on January 4th, 2021, after a courageous battle with Covid-19. Her husband and children surrounded her at the time of her passing. She was 51.
Born in Parkersburg, West Virginia, on February 12, 1969, she was raised in Little Hocking, Ohio, and graduated from Warren High School in 1987. She attended the University of Rio Grande on a full-ride scholarship in softball, where she also was a sorority sister of Alpha Sigma Tau. She went on to have a successful career in finance, and later in education, where she impacted the lives of many students. She loved to cook, play cards, sing karaoke, watch Survivor and Big Brother, wear bright colors, go camping, and visit the beach with her family. Above all else, if you asked her what her greatest accomplishment and joy in life would be, she would tell you it’s being a mom.
Although Sherri left this world too soon, her loved ones will continue to honor her by remembering her caring and giving nature, unapologetic outlook on life, fun-loving spirit and witty personality. Sherri leaves behind her husband (Jim Rasmussen), daughter and son-in-law (Kirsten and Kyle Moses), son (Wesley Rasmussen), parents (Jim and Judy Wilson), sister and brother-in-law (Kelita and Randy Deems), two brothers (Scott Wilson, Matt Wilson), five nieces and nephews, and three granddogs.
