Sherry Bradbury

Obit PicSherry Lynn Bradbury, 49, of Sedalia passed away May 9, 2016 at her home in Sedalia. She was born on October 24, 1966 in Kansas City, MO, the daughter of Walter and Shirley (Harms) Small, who survive of Higginsville, MO.

On April 27, 1991, in Higginsville she was united in marriage to Russell E. Bradbury who survives of the home.

Sherry graduated from Lafayette Co. C-1 in Higginsville in 1985 and from CMSU (now UCM) in 1989. For the past several years she worked for the Sedalia 200 school district. She loved to vacation with her family, including trips to NYC, Orlando, Orange Beach, and Nassau Paradise Island. She loved spending time at the beach and spending time with family and friends at Truman Lake. She also had a soft spot for cats and was very attached to all of her ‘kids in fur coats’ both inside the house and out. Sherry was absolutely devoted to her family and she enthusiastically cheered on her kids in dance, baseball, softball and all of their other pursuits. She would quickly tell you that her children were her greatest legacy and she was so very proud of both of them. She was an active member of the St. Paul’s Lutheran Altar Guild.

Besides her husband she is survived by two children, Steven Bradbury and Sarah Bradbury both of the home; a brother, Michael Small (Cindy) of Parkville, MO and a sister, Kelly Heinen (Gary) of Kansas City, MO.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents and paternal grandparents.
