HUNTINGTON - Sherrie Lynn Horrocks Macdonald, 65, returned to her Heavenly Father Aug. 18, 2010. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.
Mom was born March 31, 1945 in Murray to Robert and Hellace Swain Horrocks. She grew up as the youngest of 5 children on a small farm in Bluffdale. Sherrie graduated from Bingham High School in 1963 marrying her childhood friend Leon Crump that same year. Together they had two children JuNette and Destry, later divorced.
