Mrs. Sherri Marie Adamson, 50, of Rochester, passed away Monday, Jan. 7, 2013, at her residence.
Sherri was born on June 4, 1962, in Fulton, to Calvin Lee and Evelyn (VanDuyne) Braman. As one of six children, she shared her childhood with three brothers and two sisters.
In the class of 1980, she was a proud graduate of Rochester High School. Later, she attended Purdue University.
On Dec. 4, 1982, Sherri and Teri Lynn Adamson were married. Together, they enjoyed raising two sons. The blessings of two grandsons were added to the family tree.
Paramount in her life was her family, especially her grandsons. She enjoyed shopping for them all. A sports enthusiast, she cheered for the Cubs and Peyton Manning.
Sherri looked forward to girls nights out, a great dining experience and catching up with the latest news. To relax, she listened to country music and was an avid collector of John Deere memorabilia.
Actively involved with her community, Sherri was a past leader with Fulton County 4-H Woodrow Peppers. During her earlier years, she was also a member of the Fulton County Republican Women and the First Presbyterian Church, Rochester. She served as treasurer for the Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation.
Her sons Derek (2004) and Clayton (2013) played on the Viking baseball team and Clay for the Viking tennis team. She enjoyed following their activities and cheering the teams on. Her love for Viking sports grew, and Sherri could be seen from the sidelines of most of the ladies and mens Viking athletic contests.
Sherri is lovingly remembered by her husband, Teri; two sons, Derek Adamson and wife Brittany, of Tippecanoe, Clayton Adamson, at home; two grandsons, Parker Lee Adamson and Brock Paul Adamson; her mother, Evelyn Braman, of Rochester; two sisters, Judy Taylor and husband Russ of Walkerton, and Pat Rathbun and husband Cam, of Warsaw; three brothers, Bill Braman and wife Georgina, of Florida, Phill Braman and wife Monica, of Michigan, and John Braman, of Indianapolis; her aunt, Marjorie Phillips; and canine companions, Lilly, a beagle/blue healer mix, and Sandy, a golden retriever. Cousins, nieces and nephews also survive.
Sherri was preceded in death by her father Calvin on May 21, 2004.
A celebration of the life of Sherri M. (Braman) Adamson will be at 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 11, 2013, in the Good Family Funeral Home and Cremation Center, Rochester, with Pastor Junior Bose officiating.
