Sherry Lynn Mitchell • December 2, 2017



On April 23rd 1947, Sherry Lynn Sweatman was born, and the world became a brighter, more elegant and beautiful place. Throughout her life, everyone who was fortunate enough to spend any amount of time with her walked away a better person; for her natural charisma, extraordinary kindness, and exemplary compassion towards friends and strangers alike were so unique, yet so sincere.

She was the absolute living personification of everything a wife, mother, and grandmother (Nana) should be, and she was simply unrivaled in her intrinsic maternal instincts.

The unconditional love, and dedication she generously devoted to her husband, children, and grandchildren were absolutely unwavering, and immeasurable.

On December 2nd 2017, she left the confines of this world, and now she illuminates the heavens with her presence. Although her physical presence is no longer with us, her spirit will always exist to serve as a beacon of light to guide us, and comfort us throughout our lives.

Sherry’s memory will live on with her husband -Marty Mitchell; her daughter -Delicia Jackson (her husband, Jeff); her son -Daniel Hawkins (his wife, Amanda); her granddaughters -Jordan (her husband, Aaron), Josie, & Madelyn; her grandson -Connor; her brothers & sisters, and the many friends who loved her, and considered her a part of their family. We love You.

A Visitation will be held Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 9:30AM until the funeral service at 10:30AM at Pensacola Memorial Gardens Funeral Home.

The family has requested, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice.

    My fondness memories of my Aunt Sherry was going to church with her,shopping with Delicia who was sitting in the buggy, babysitting Delicia and Daniel and the many many sleepovers. I loved her then and have always. I know she is smiling down from Heaven and holding hands with our Lord.

    I will remember Sherry as ALWAYS happy and upbeat-even when she was in the midst of a battle! She was always secure in the Love the Lord had for her and she was a beautiful example of a trusting child of God…what a wonderful legacy she has left for her family, loved ones and the many friends the Lord has surrounded her with.

    One day we will all be together and NEVER have to say Good-Bye!
