Sherry (Sword) Jellison Palmer, of Ogilvie, Minnesota, passed away peacefully at home with her husband by her side on Thursday, January 10, 2013, after battling melanoma skin cancer for two years.  She was 66 years old.

Sherry was born on August 15, 1946 in Saint Paul, Minnesota to parents Robert and Lucille (Marlow) Sword.  She was the eldest of three children and attended Johnson High School, graduating in 1964. In her first marriage, Sherry was blessed with three children; Michelle, Michael, and Bobby.    She later married Harold Jellison.  The couple, along with Harold’s brother Cal Jellison and his wife Lorrain, owned and operated Anoka Auto Wrecking.  After selling the business, Sherry and Harold moved to Cambridge where she enjoyed working as a travel agent, and at the Hinckley Casino, and at the Wal-Mart Photo Center.   Sherry also spent a short time as a volunteer at the Cambridge Medical Center.   She also enjoyed people and was always ready with a wonderful smile.

In 2009, Sherry was reunited with her long-time friend, Gary Palmer, and they were united in marriage in April of 2010.  She often said it was the best three years of her life.  They spent all their time together and enjoyed morning coffee on the deck.  Sherry and Gary enjoyed working on many stained glass projects that were always beautiful.   Sherry took up fishing and learning to spit sunflower seeds over the side of the boat— without much success!  She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.  She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Sherry is preceded in death by her parents; husband Harold Jellison; and grandson Darrel DeNucci.

She is survived by her husband Gary, children Michelle (Joe) Charles, Michael (Penny) DeNucci, Bobby DeNucci, Alan (Michelle) Palmer, Luthera Smith, Bryan (Mary) Palmer, Ronald Provost, Russ Palmer, William (Denise) Palmer, Jodi Palmer, and Georgette Palmer; grandchildren Vance (Jody), Daniel (Lauren), Michael, Clay, Christopher, Solbee, Cassandra, Cody, Bobby, and Sierra; siblings Gloria (Mick) Kjonaas and Bob (Pam) Sword; Cousin and dearest friend Berta (Mark) Reynolds; also many other relatives and friends.

A Memorial Service was held on Monday, January 14, 2013 at the New Hope Christian Reform Church in Ogilvie with Rev. Russ Palmer officiating. Inurnment will take place in the spring at the Pliny Cemetery in McGrath.  Arrangements are by the Akkerman Ingebrand Funeral Home of Mora

    Sherry came to stay with us on the farm in Wisconsin when she was around 15 months old. She captured hearts with her personality and good looks – most especially the heart of Grandpa Sword. You were taken much too soon and I will miss you. Your Aunt Helen Daughtry

    Sherry was the eldest of my cousins from my mother’s family. I was the youngest. I remember the wonderful time when she, Pootie, Michael and Bobby came to live with us for 6 months when we lived in Petaluma, California. She became close to us all. I love Sherry so very much. She will always be in my heart and in my memories. My heart is broken that she left us so early in life. I look forward to the day when we will be together again. I know she is in a better place with God and all of her loved ones who have gone before her. My prayers are with her family. May the joy of loving Sherry be with us all forever.

    Sherry was my oldest of a great group of cousins I have. When she came to live with my mom, sister, and me in California, I actually got to go to high school with her daughter Pootie (Michelle). Through the years I always enjoyed her visits to California. They were a highlight for me. Sherry’s one of the most joyful people I’ve known. It’s been a pleasure to know Sherry and an honor to ne her cousin. I love you Sherry and I will miss you.
