Sheryl Wenona Greeness French received her angel wings in the early morning hours of Sunday, November 7, 2021, surrounded by family and friends at home.

Sheryl was born October 18, 1954, in Melrose Park, Illinois. Beloved Wife, Mother, and Grandmother, Sheryl was a Charter Member of the Calvary Baptist Church in  Bastrop, Texas; where she and husband Mike were married November 17, 1979. There is a lot to be said about Sheryl, but for those closest to her, she will be remembered for her beautiful smile, her friendliness, her compassion and grace. She was a genuine caring woman with a heart of gold. She was forgiving, kind, fun loving and always ready for a good time. Completely loyal to her family and enjoyed the encounters with everyone in the community while working at the Bastrop Post Office. Her greatest joys were her children and grand children especially, enjoying her #1 baseball player "her Grandson" in which she never missed a game. Another passion was enjoying all the children and their families at Sweetpea Learning Center in which she owned.

She was blessed with a loving marriage of 42 years with the love of her life. They enjoyed dancing, traveling, following the Velvets Band in their younger years and trips to Mexico. Its truly a love affair that many of us long to have.
