Obituary for Sherri Denne Wright

Sherri Denne  Wright
Sherri Denne Wright (West) loved people, especially children. She had light in her eyes, a smile on her face, a hair trigger laugh and a sincere interest in truly knowing everyone who entered her life. Shortly after meeting her, perfect strangers would happily recount intimate details of their life to her. She exuded empathy and people were drawn to share their stories with her. She genuinely cared. Sherri was born February 11, 1957 in Phoenix, Arizona. She passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at Mesilla Valley Hospice in Las Cruces, NM. Sherri was diagnosed with ALS in 2014. While this disease relentlessly attacked her physically, it never conquered her spirit. Sherri graduated from Saguaro High School (Scottsdale, AZ., Class of 1975). She attended Northern Arizona University and graduated from Casper College (Casper, WY., 1996) with an associate degree in Occupational Therapy. She went on to work with physically and mentally impaired children in a variety of rural and urban schools in Wyoming and Northern Arizona. She once stared down a bull moose that barred her path to the elementary school in Kelly, Wyoming. She loved watching full moons from a tropical beach or a frozen landscape on cross-country skis. She was a dedicated and loving partner, mother, caregiver and friend. She is survived by her husband David Wright; sons Glenn Wilkerson and Daniel Wright; sisters Vicki West and Christina May; brothers Steve West, Marty West, Robby West, Lonnie West and Westley May; many nephews and nieces; and a very special friend, Clara Armijo. She was preceded in death by her parents Robert West and Marilyn Wray Gravlin and her beloved sister Bobbi Jean Lukehart (West).
