Sherri Lea (Woolley) Crider, 63, passed away early Sunday morning, Oct. 10, 2021, at her home in Belle.
She was born Feb. 2, 1958, a daughter of Harold “Wimp” and Virginia (Shockley) Woolley.
She was united in marriage to Rick Crider in April of 1976, prior to Rick being stationed at Fort Carson, Colo., with the U.S. Army.
Sherri was a 1976 graduate of Belle High School.
She served as an officer for the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW.

She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren, especially around campfires at the Gasconade River. She also loved playing Bingo with her family.
Sherri was full of compassion. Anytime she learned of a family in need, she was right there offering any help she could.
