Sherri Ann Overton, age 61, passed away at her home in Custer, Montana on January 20, 2018.
Sherri was born in Baker, MT to Tom and Edna (Freier) Atkinson on January 7, 1957. Four sisters and three brothers welcomed this precious baby sister. Dad reported to us after her birth that she was as cute as a button and fat as a butterball. Youngest brother David joined our family two years later.
Sherri was raised in Circle, Montana and attended elementary and middle school there. Sherri attended Lustre High School and graduated there. After graduation she moved with her parents and Brother David to Oregon. She worked as a customer service specialist in various grocery stores, working with Brother Monte and Later Leo and Aggie. She was a great employee and was great with customers. She left Oregon to be closer to her mom, Edna Atkinson, and Leo and Aggie and family, and Sandy and Barry Bohlman.
She moved to Custer, Montana and was employed at the Junction City Saloon and Café. She was known for her great personality, fun and laughter. Though never a mother, she loved her nieces and nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews as her own children.
Sherri was preceded in death by her parents, and a baby brother. Sherri is survived by Aggie (Leo) Schmidt, Carla (Ron) Brummel, Charles Atkinson, Sheila (Arden) Schwartz, Sandy (Barry) Bohlman, J.T. (Brenda) Atkinson, Monte (Annie) Atkinson, David (Marcia) Atkinson, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and many special friends, including Russel Ponessa.
Special thanks to her employer Denny Dinger and his wife of Custer, Montana.
