Sharon “Sherri” Ann Johnston, 72, of Green Bay, died of a stroke Thursday, December 19, 2019 at Aurora BayCare Medical Center, Green Bay.
She was born on January 3, 1947 in Green Bay, daughter of the late Raymond and Jeanette (Haucke) DeNamur. Sherri was a graduate of West High School with the class of 1965. On September 6, 1969 she married her high school sweetheart, David Johnston, at First Ev. Lutheran Church in Green Bay. Sherri was employed as a bookkeeper with Bay Dental Associates starting right after high school until her retirement in 2014. She was a dedicated wife and a selfless mother who worked very hard to take care of the family she loved. Sherri loved to bake and cook and was always clipping new recipes to try. She was especially known for her delicious sugar cookies. She was an avid reader and enjoyed cross stitching. Sherri had such a silly sense of humor and was always quick to laugh and smile and gave the best bear hugs.
