Sherri, you were the most amazing person, teacher, mentor and friend. You got me to pull that "A" in 121! And that was the least of your many beautiful attributes, because anyone who knew you knew you were an inspiring person, all around. You will be missed dearly.

I was a student of Sherri's and I can say that she was the best math teacher I have ever had. She was always smiling and a kind person. I knew that she had become ill when another teacher took over for her class but I was hoping she would be back next semester. I am deeply saddened about the loss of such a nice person.

I am going to miss Sherri so very much. She was an amazing woman. When I had to pass the OPAC test in order to keep my job she was the one that worked with me and helped me study so that I was able to pass the test, and for that I will forever be grateful. Sherri was very kind and loving. Sherri was loved by many and is going to be missed by many. My many thoughts and prayers go to the family. Knowing what a wonderful woman Sherri was must give you some peace and comfort at this time.

Sherri, you touched so many lives and made every one of our lives better because of it. You were dedicated, determined, loyal, and meticulous in any task that you did.

It is so hard to believe you are gone from us, but I take comfort in knowing that you are free now.

I miss Sherri so very much, but I know that she is in a so much better place now. She was a very special lady, very loving and caring. When I had to take the OPAC test and pass it in order to keep my job, Sherri was the one that gave me what I needed to study and helped me study so that I was able to pass the test and keep my job. She worked with me many of times and made sure that I knew what I needed to know in order to pass, for that I will be forever grateful. Sherri was just wonderful in so many ways. My deepest sympathies to her family. Knowing what a special lady she was must give you so much comfort at this time. Thank you Sherri, for everything.

What a beautiful woman we lost. Sherri did and always will hold a special bond with me, we had in common the "Teacher" in us. I may not have been one in the way that Sherri was, because she wanted it more than I did and worked hard to attain it. I will forever miss her talks about gardening, animals, and education. Just a true good hearted person who we will miss tremendously. My sympathies to family and friends. I know for a fact that Sherri is definitely in a better place watching over us all. Till we meet again my friend, watch over us all.

Sherri Heidrich was a dedicate and loyal friend. She was wise beyond her years and certainly beyond her peers but that never stopped her from befriending someone because they new less.

She obtained her Bachelor's degree in mathematics at Black Hills State University in South Dakota where she was raised. She went on to receive a Master's degree and worked simultaneously for both Mohave County as a Workforce Investment Act Coordinator and Mohave Community College as associate faculty in the math department. She was a long term employee of both.

Sherri loved cats. All Cats and everything about cats. Her office was decorated with mementos of her love for cats. Co-workers and friends never had to guess what Sherri wanted for a birthday or Christmas or special occasions. If it had to do with cats she absolutely loved it.

Sherri was the kind of person who would love you because you just thought of giving her something that had to do with cats. She was a giving person herself. More than just giving material things though, Sherri would give of her time at anytime regardless of how busy she was herself. Many is the time she was asked by another to lend a hand to a project because of her expertise in spite of the piles of undone work on her desk that she was personally responsible for completing.

Sherri would go well out of her way to find out just what the other person would want before she would give a gift herself. The time she spent to purchase a simple 5 dollar gift for an office Christmas party because it had to be “The Right Gift” was worth far more than the monetary value and every recipient of those gifts down through the years new it. When the recipient was to be an unknown person through a lottery, Sherri would still come up with a prize that anyone would want and covet. She was just that special.

Sherri, I'm glad to have known you and I'm a far better person because of your friendship.

Sherri did all she could do to help students pass Algebra classes at MCC and worked hard at Work Force Development in getting students to pass their GED classes. She will be missed!
She was also kind to everyone. I don't know what took her from us much too soon but I know God has a place for her at His side.
God bless Sherri's family and friends.

Sherri was the only reason I was able to pass my math classes at MCC. She was an amazing instructor, but she spent a lot of extra time tutoring me. She was an asset to the community, what a huge loss!!! Rest in peace, dear Sherri.

I am so saddened to hear of Sherri's passing. Sherri was a wonderful person that did so much, for so many. She did more for me than I am sure she ever knew. There are many people in our community that are better people because of her, as I am one of those honored persons. My prayers and condolences go out to her family. May God hold you close Sherri. I will miss you.
