Sherry was born June 5, 1964, to Pauline and Danny Davis. She was a natural caretaker and mother figure to many. She enjoyed country music, cookouts, and spending time with loved ones. She had an uplifting spirit and a way of giving people strength. She valued her children above all else.

She is survived by her children, Jennifer Weaver, Jesse (Kayla) Jeffries, and Paige Jeffries; stepson, Jeremy Jeffires; grandchildren, Jaylin, Jaxson, Jordyn, and Lily Jeffries; siblings, Danny Davis, Jr., Wesley (Nicole) Davis; several nieces and nephews; and her lifelong love, Rodney Weaver.

She is preceded in death by loved one, Harry Jeffries, Jr.; grandma, Mable Agee; parents; and sister, Carrie Davis.

Funeral service will begin at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, January 20, 2018, at Hamilton’s Funeral Home, 605 Lyon Street, Des Moines. Family will greet friends from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. prior to the funeral. Burial will immediately follow services at Laurel Hill Cemetery.
