It is with great sadness that the family of Sherri announce her sudden passing on May 27, 2023 at The Moncton Hospital. Born in Moncton she was the daughter of Ray and Deanna (Dobson) Knapper.

In her life she worked as an educational assistant and behaviour interventionist in schools, most recently Riverview East school. Sherri adored her work and her students. Her passion, empathy and patience allowed her students, coworkers and teachers a place to be heard, cared for, and loved. She touched everyone with the way she cared for these children. If someone needed a chance, she gave it to them. When speaking with Sherri, you felt like the only person in the room. Her kindness filled the air, and you knew she was present without even seeing her just because of the warmth she radiated. She went on to co-found the Riverview Girl Guide Pathfinder Unit, further showing her dedication to the next generation.

Sherri spent her summers at KOK Campground, her happy place, with her BFF, and a rich community of friends. Sharing food, laughter and good times was Sherri’s specialty. For many, their happy place was wherever Sherri was. Now, and for eternity, Sherri’s Happy Place will be a memory of everything she loved, and the rich life she lived. The wind will blow, and the waves will crash, the sun will rise and set, but the footprints Sherri left in the sand, and in our memories, will remain until the end of time.

She truly was selfless, giving so much of herself and her thoughts to those who needed it. Though Sherri was taken far too soon, it is known that Sherri was always where she needed to be. As she spent her life helping us all, giving everything she had for the happiness, prosperity and health of those she loved, all should be comforted knowing she will give life and health to others in need through the Organ Donation Program.

In addition to her parents, she will be remembered and missed by her daughter Baylie, son Logan, spouse Richard Miller, her biological mother Penny Perry, half-sister Sara (Neil) Wolthers, half-brother Anson (Michelle) Chappell, the father of her children Rene as well as several nieces and nephews. Sherri was preceded in death by her sister Suzanne Lee Knapper.

A celebration of her life will be held for family and friends at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd. Riverview (869-2007) on June 2, 2023 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

Donations in her memory may be made to Girl Guides of Canada Pathfinders, Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of the donor’s choice.
