Sherrick, Ruth Anne McFadden; age 75; passed away on Wednesday evening at Kitty Askins Hospice Center surrounded by her loving family. Ruth was born in Jackson County, Michigan on April 12, 1939, to the late Willard and Mildred Bunting McFadden. She was a retired school teacher. Ruth was a caring, loving parent and grandparent whose primary goal was the happiness and security of her family. She was an active member at the St. Luke United Methodist Church in Rochester Hills, Michigan. While in Goldsboro visiting with her daughter and son in law to get away from the snow, she enjoyed attending The Bridge Church in Princeton. Ruth leaves behind a legacy of unconditional love and support for the people she cared about. She truly lived a life with a giving spirit. Ruth gave to others before she would ever give to herself. Her enthusiasm and charm will be missed by all who knew and loved her. A celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. at The Bridge Church Princeton Campus with Pastor Andy Stovall officiating. A service will be held at a later date for all the friends and family in Michigan. Ruth is survived by her faithful husband of 53 years Peter Sherrick; daughters, Anne Kuhns and husband Mark of Goldsboro, and Barbara Knighton and husband Keith of Fowlerville Michigan; grandchildren, Karen and Daniel McKnight, Jessica and Tim Harrison, Sandra and Jason Steed, Debra and Zachary Coleman, Rebecca Kuhns, and Kiah Perry; great grandchildren, Elizabeth McKnight, Abigail McKnight, Katherine McKnight, Kinley Steed, and Stephen Steed; sister Mary Hands of Jackson, Michigan. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother John McFadden. The family will receive friends following the service on Saturday at the Bridge Church in Princeton. Children played such a special role in Ruth’s life and brought the biggest twinkle to her eyes. Although flowers are welcome, nothing would make Ruth happier than seeing her granddaughter (Jessica Harrison and her husband Tim) receive donations to help offset the cost of their upcoming IVF procedure. The couple has a gofundme account online or donations can be mailed to 607 Shelley Drive, Goldsboro, NC, 27534.
