Sherry Lynn Solis did not let anything cheat her out of enjoying her family and her life. Her untimely death after a nine-year battle with cancer only means a change in venue as she smiles down from Heaven on the ones she loves. Her earthly retreat was the family cottage on Lake Lancer in Gladwin, Michigan, where she and hubby Jeff spent every weekend. There, at "Paradise One," they relaxed, boated, partied with their great friends Todd and Lisa, and enjoyed many special moments together.

Sherry was born on the last day of January 1962 in Detroit, Michigan to Jim and Pat Klauza. The family moved to Sterling Heights where Sherry graduated from Stevenson High School. She met her future husband, Jeff Solis, in 1980 and the two were married September 11, 1982. They had a son and a daughter, Jeff and Brittany. Sherry reveled in her family's accomplishments. She was a valuable sounding board while supporting her husband's success in business, her son's success as a CPA, and her daughter's college graduation, career and engagement to a young man whom Sherry adored. Sherry's devoted canine companion Abbey (AKA Abberdabbers) pitched in with the family to urge Sherry on in her own health battles.

Second to her love of family was Sherry's love of shopping and decorating their home. Her "stash" of soon-to-be-utilized items is legendary, and her natural taste in décor lent a welcoming air to their home and northern retreat. From "time-to-time" she loved to indulge in her favorite sweets, ice cream and dark chocolate, but healthy foods were the norm in her kitchen and pantry.

Through her long illness, Sherry remained very positive, never complaining or asking why. She passed away peacefully, with her family around her, late on the evening of January 2, just shy of her 53rd birthday.

Sherry is survived by her husband, Jeff; her children, Jeff and Brittany (fiancé Colin Smith), her parents Jim and Pat Klauza and her sister Susan Cholak plus many nieces and nephews. The family would request memorials to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in memory of Sherry.
