Sherry Elizabeth Greenwald
July 4, 1955 Ė July 8, 2012
Sherry Elizabeth Greenwald, 57, of Mukwonago, passed away Sunday, July 8, 2012 surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with brain cancer.
Sherry was born July 4, 1955, in Mukwonago, the daughter of Darwin N. and Donna E. Greenwald. She graduated from Mukwonago High School and attended the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, where she received her bachelorís degree in business. Sherry founded and operated her publishing business, Towns and Associates Inc., in Baraboo, for more than 28 years. She was a member of the First Congregational Church of Mukwonago and a founding member of the Citizens for Waterfront Revitalization in Baraboo and the Madison Polo Club.
Sherry was full of ideas and very creative. She did all of the design of the Greenwald Gardens and Manor in Mukwonago (www.greenwaldgardens.com). Sherry was an avid traveler and lover of life. She didnít believe in bucket lists and instead promptly went out and accomplished anything that she wanted to do in her life. Her family was the most important thing to her and the best times in her life were when she was surrounded by them. When anyone told Sherry that she couldnít do something, she would make it happen. That was never more evident than in her battle with cancer.
She was the beloved wife of Glenn B. Sims of Mukwonago; cherished mother of Victoria Dior Greenwald (age 15) of Mukwonago, Rachel Ellen (Scott) Dingus of North Dighton, Mass., and Tamara Elizabeth (John) Pozorski of Palmyra; dearest daughter of Darwin N. and Donna E. Greenwald of Mukwonago; grandmother of John Joseph Pozorski III (age 7), Isabelle Gloria Dingus (age 4) and Preston Richard Dingus (age 2); and loving sister of Darwin D. (Cheryl) Greenwald of Mukwonago and Bonnie M. Greenwald of Waukesha. Sherry was loved and will be remembered by other relatives and many dear friends.
Visitation will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 12, at the First Congregational Church of Mukwonago, 231 Roberts Drive, Mukwonago. Visitation continues from 10 a.m. until the 11 a.m. funeral service Friday, July 13, at the church, with the Rev. Rick Hartley officiating. Burial will follow at Oak Knoll Cemetery in Mukwonago.
