Sherri was born Oct. 21, 1940 in Greeley, Colo. to Edward and Leona Bauman. Her family moved to Sidney where she lived for the majority of her life. Sherri graduated from Sidney High School in 1959. She was active as the school's drum majorette and played flute and drums. In high school, she was an exchange student to Munich, Germany and Sherri's letters home were published in the Sidney Telegraph, sharing her adventure with the community. She married her loving husband of 53 years, James Robinson, on Feb. 14, 1960 in Miami, Fla. They lived in Miami, moving to Denver, before eventually returning to Sidney, where they raised five children and built a wonderful life together.

Sherri was a great homemaker, able to craft and create anything needed for the home or her family. She was an avid reader, enjoyed watching movies, and the home was often filled with her favorite music and the scent of fresh baked cookies. Sherri belonged to a number of Sidney organizations including Order of the Eastern Star and the Sidney Women's Chamber of Commerce, where she served as President. She worked at several Sidney businesses over the years and was elected to the position of Clerk of the District Court, where she served until retiring.

After spending the majority of their lives focused on raising their children, Sherri and Jim enjoyed an active retirement. They traveled and toured the U.S., Europe, Costa Rica and Mexico. They enjoyed motorcycle riding, traveling in their motor home, and spent many happy hours at their cabin at Lake McConaughy with their friends and family.
