Sherry Lynn Siddall, 74, of La Porte, passed away on Monday, May 17, 2021 at Miller's Merry Manor, New Carlisle.

Sherry was born on May 23, 1946 in La Porte, IN, to Ray Carroll and Jessie Amelia (Elijah) Deardurff. 

On October 23, 1999 in La Porte, IN, she married Barry Wayne Siddall, Sr., who preceded her in death on July 27, 2015.  Surviving Sherry are her children, Doug Swanson, Ray Swanson, Shelley (Bill) Armour, Steve (Dawn) Matthews, and Sue (Ross) Schoff, all of La Porte; 9 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded by her husband, Barry Siddall; grandson, Chase Swanson; siblings, Rae Carol Winkler, Ruth Schilla, Beverly Williamson, and Richard Deardurff; and parents, Ray and Jessie Deardurff. 

Sherry was a die hard Cubs fan, but also enjoyed ND football.  She enjoyed cooking and loved sewing, which she did as an occupation.  She also worked at the St. John's Lutheran School library for over 30 years.

She was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church and volunteered at the St. John's Thrift Shop.  

Sherry will fondly be remembered as the "mom" of the neighborhood, as well as for the wonderful Christmas cookies she created.  She never missed her sons' and grandsons' baseball games.  Sherry was never happier than when she was with and supporting her children.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 24, 2021 at St. John's Lutheran Church with Rev. Dr. Kendall Schaeffer officiating.  Burial will follow at Patton Cemetery.
