    Sherrill Weddersten, 59, of Roodhouse passed away March 10,  2018 at SLU Hospital in St. Louis.   

  Born on Dec. 8, 1958 in Carrollton, she was the daughter of Raymond Schofield and Ruby (Williams) Max, 81, of Roodhouse.

    She married Doug Weddersten ,62, on Nov. 25, 1977 and enjoyed over 40 years together.   Doug survives in Roodhouse, as does her mother, her children: David, 34, Andrew, 29, and Michael Weddersten, 25, a brother: Raymond Schofield, 54, of White Hall, and a sister Alissa Stamper, 43, of Roodhouse.

     Preceding her in death were her twin sister Sharon Schofield (1959), her father: Raymond Schofield, 36 (1964), and her step-father: Bill Savage, 82 (1994).

    Sherrill was a graduate of North Greene High School in 1977.  She worked while in high school at White Hall Nursing and Rehabilitation Center assisting nurses.  She then worked at Capitol Records throughout the 1980’s.  She later started pursuing a nursing career and attended nursing school at Lewis and Clark Community College and in 1992,  graduated with a Nursing degree.  She furthered her education by going to many seminars in other states.  Nursing lead her from an RN at Auburn Rehabilitation Healthcare Center to “Nursing Director” at Jacksonville Developmental Center until it’s closing and Supervisor at McFarland Mental Health Center in Springfield.  She cemented a legacy as an outstanding, decision-making, dedicated nurse that everybody could depend on.  She would take over her nursing role whenever someone was hospitalized. She was trustworthy and great at making friendships and trusting relationships naturally.  She loved animals, especially when rescued.   But it was her love of life, family, and people that lead her to a decision to donate any and all of her organs at the time of her death.   She will be tragically missed.
