Sherrie Tryon April 12, 1955 - May 13, 2019
Our grieving family is sad to announce the sudden loss of Sherrie Tryon on May 13, 2019, in Roseburg, Oregon. Sherrie suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and passed peacefully surrounded by family. Just 64 years old, she was born on April 12, 1955 in Lebanon, Oregon to Rudy and Dolores Kellison.
As a young child she moved with her family to Southern California living in Fontana where she was joined by a sister and brother. Later moving to Upland where she attended elementary and junior high. When Sherrie was entering high school, the family moved to Newport, Oregon. She graduated from Newport High in 1973 and stayed in contact with several of her close friends.
Sherrie met & married the love of her life Vernon (Bim) Tryon in the late 1980’s. Together they had their son Austin and in later years daughter Danielle joined their family. Besides being a wife and mother, she kept busy procuring, managing and fixing up the family’s Sunriver Vacation Rental homes.
Sherrie was known for her generosity and giving heart. While raising her son in Waldport, Oregon she often volunteered her time to school functions and other events such as the Waldport Beachcomber Days. She welcomed several foster children into their home and donated to many local organizations and several families or students in need. A favorite venue was the Sunriver Nature Center and Observatory where she and her family volunteered many hours, providing assistance to enhance the equipment and experiences for others. Sherrie loved Central Oregon spending many weekends, holidays and vacations there with her family, extended family and friends. She lovingly owned several fur babies over the years, always becoming quite attached.
Grandparents Douglas & Lucy Cruise, Lee & Gweneth Kellison, Darold & Cretta Blanchard; father Rudy Kellison and nephew Clayton preceded Sherrie’s death.
Sherrie is survived by her husband Bim, son Austin, daughter Danielle and fur babies Olive and Merle; her mother Dolores (Dolly) Kellison; her siblings, Christie (John) Meister and Ray (Christy) Kellison and her several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
A Celebration of Life will be held in the fall. In lieu of flowers, Sherrie would be honored by a donation in her name to her beloved Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory, 57245 River Rd, Sunriver, OR 97707 www.sunrivernaturecenter.org
