Sherrie Jean Ruffin

April 5, 1956 ~ May 7, 2021 (age 65)


"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith" 2 Timothy 4:7

Sherrie Jean Ruffin was born on April 5, 1956 to the late Dorothy Ruffin and to the late Horace Chambers. She accepted Christ as her personal Savior at an early age and rededicated her life to Christ when joining as a member at New Beginning.  She had a strong faith in God and devoted her life to caring for others. She loved fishing, sewing, and loving her family with an open heart.

Sherrie spent much of her life caring for her mother and helping anybody that she felt needed help. Her family describes her as kind hearted, loving, selfless, silly, and funny. All it took was for her to do that little signature dance of hers to put a smile on everybody's face. She remained positive and fought a good fight until God gave her her wings.
Sherrie transitioned into eternal life with the Lord on May 7, 2021. She was preceded in death by her mother Dorothy Ruffin, father Horace Chambers, four sisters Dorothy Jones, Lavern Ruffin, Ann Washington, and Maggie Chambers, and seven brothers Billy Ruffin (Linda), Alonzo Ruffin, Jimmy Ruffin, Quitman Ormond, Charles Chambers, Johnny Chambers, and George Chambers. 

Sherrie leaves behind two daughters, Yolanda Ruffin and Shalanda Clark, one grandson Christian Ruffin, and two granddaughters Adia Clark and Amariona Clark; six sisters Lenora Shapard (Robert), Lillia Chambers, Willie Mae Nichols, Mamie Smith, Lessie Robinson, and Hellean Williams; eight brothers Dwayne Ruffin (Lavern, preceded in death), Dwight Ruffin (Diane), Charlie Ruffin, Reginald Ruffin, Roger Ruffin, Walter Williams (Deborah), Joe Chambers, and Horace Chambers (Ann); and a host of nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.
Sherrie will be greatly missed and forever loved dearly.
