October 18, 1938 - July 25, 2021 Sherolyn B. Hawk, 82 of Meshoppen, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday July 25.
There is a sadness in Sankey Valley, a name given to the Century Farm homestead where she
was raised and lived. She leaves behind her husband of 44 years, Jim Hawk.
Sherry leaves a legacy that will live in the hearts of her family. Her work
Ethic will always be a staple. She was a carhop in Miami, an Avis rent-a-car rep,
and a Legg’s distributor to name a few. She owned her own fabric store in Tunkhannock,
the Pin Cushion. She could go from camo to vogue. In 1986, she opened her business, Hawk
Insurance which continues to serve the community with her children and her grandchildren.
She served on the Interfaith Board as President, Wyoming County Chamber,
BPW, Republican Chairperson and Master Gardener.
In the winter she was an avid hunter and, in the spring, and summer you could find Sherry in her
gardens, flowers and vegetables-enough to supply a small country. She and Jim loved to travel,
to watch the Dodgers and enjoy life on the porch. They were a team. She loved to feed the troops
and gathering in their kitchen was always an event. She was famous for her pies, you had to be quick
to get a piece of the chocolate cream especially.
We will miss her umbrella on the beach in Florida, she was the first one there
and the last one to leave. She never judged and there was a lot to judge. Her
support and love were unwavering along with her positive attitude about life.
She leaves behind a loving family, son Jeff Tyler and companion Donna Goff
of Montrose, daughter Janelle Tyler of Florida, daughter Robin Emmerich and husband Eric,
Springville, son Clint Tyler and companion Ruth Milnes, Meshoppen, daughter Dina Petersen and
husband Michael of Virginia, son Michael Hawk and wife Liz of Seattle and son Jason Hawk of Florida.
11 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren. sister Christine Strumski, and sister-in-law Susan Button
and wife Lori.
Preceding her in death were her parents, Eleanor and Hilton Button, brother Phillip Button,
brother-in-law David Strumski and daughter-in-law Jeanne Tyler.
