Sherry Lee Mashburn, 67, life-long Fairfax resident, passed peacefully from this life into God’s hands on Thursday morning June 13, 2019. Born on November 4, 1951, the daughter of Jack Odell Hutchison and Helen Marie (Riley) Hutchison in Fairfax, Oklahoma. She attended Fairfax Schools, graduating in 1970 with her Red Devil Classmates.
Sherry married the love of her life, Peter Mashburn on June 16, 1972. The couple remained in Fairfax where not only their five children were raised but several grandchildren too. They were married three days short of 47 years when Sherry passed.
Her enthusiasm as a Red Devil High School cheerleader didn’t stop at graduation in May of 1970 but continued on with her five children, who were also Red Devils/Woodland Cougars. She rarely missed a football, basketball or softball game while they were growing up. The “cheerleader” in her turned full-time “Woodland Cougar” fan when grandchildren came along. They excelled in football, basketball, softball and track as well. She spent endless hours following them to sporting events.
Known as “Lonzo”, mother, and granny to family and most who knew her, Sherry’s enjoyments included anything to do with plants, flowers and daubers. In later years, she worked at the flower shop in town, designing and creating beautiful arrangements. From childhood to retired life, she enjoyed everything “camping.” Often times, when the children were grown and gone from home, she and Pete loved “taking a road trip.” After no one answered their phone calls, the kids would check the house to find both parents and dogs gone, that’s when they knew road trip was on!
Her tribe, grandchildren and great-grandkids were the pride and joy of her life. The legacy of Sherry’s kind spirit, passion for sports, love of nature, and zest for life will live on through them.
Sherry was preceded in death by her daddy, Jack Hutchison and sister, Betty Ann Adams.
She is survived by her loving husband of the home, Pete; five awesome children: Justin (Brandi) Mashburn, Toby (Chrissy) Mashburn, and Lacy (Toby) Jones all of Fairfax; Holly (Paul) Sisco of Dover, Okla.; and Jamy (Brandon) Conner of Ralston; cherished mother, Helen Hutchison-Rice of Ponca City; sixteen adored grandchildren; seven treasured great-grandchildren; and dear brother, Mickey (Lonna) Hutchison of Fairfax. She also leaves many other family members and friends who will sadly miss her.
We would also like to give a very special thank you to Brandi Mashburn, Paul Sisco, Chrissy Mashburn, Toby Jones, Brandon Conner, and “Janny K.” She loved you all so much.
Sherry’s grandsons will serve as Pallbearers: Tyler and Blayne Mashburn; Chad, David, and Peter Rogers; and Mason Mashburn.
Honorary pallbearers are nephews: Jack, Josh, T.J., Jordan Hutchison and Doug Adams.
In Roo’s own words, “Granny won, and now has both legs.”
