Sheritta A. Richardson, 61, of Carlisle, departed this life on August 25, 2011. She was born June 12, 1950 in Carlisle, and was a daughter of the late Jacob T. and Delores G. (Profater) Hodge.

She was a 1968 graduate of Carlisle High School and was employed with the State of Pennsylvania for 35 years. She was also a member of Unity Church, where along with being the financial manager, she also served on the Praise Team, the Pastor Appreciation Committee and the Choir.  Sheri loved singing, reading and most importantly laughing. She loved life and took on every challenge with a worry-free attitude.

Sheri leaves behind two daughters, Amy Richardson and Erica Richardson of Carlisle; two granddaughters, Sy’raiah and Sanai Marshall; two sisters, Valorie Brooks of Dover, Del. and Pam Hodge of Carlisle; one brother, Jacob T. Hodge, also of Carlisle; one brother-in-law, James A. Brooks; one sister-in-law, Tonya Hodge; one very special niece and seven nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 31 at Ewing Brothers Funeral Home, 630 S. Hanover St. Carlisle, with the Rev. Don Watkins officiating. Viewing will be held on Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. until the time of the services.  Burial will be private.  Memorial contributions may be made to Unity Church, 408 N. Baltimore St., Mt. Holly Springs, or to the South Central PA Sickle Cell Council, 2000 Linglestown Rd., Ste 204, Harrisburg.

To Pam,Valorie,Spike and the Hodge family,

 We would like to extend our deepest sympathy
 to your family at this very difficult time.
 Sherry and I would ride the bus back and forth to our jobs at the state.
 We began our friendship at that time and we would talk about making
 desserts, especially cakes which she enjoyed making
and she would bring me a piece to sample.
 She was a kind person with a loving heart.

Vienna & Buddy Pearson

I love you and you will be missed
