Obituary

Sherry Lee Greaves, 59, passed away in Reading Hospital on October 17, 2017 surrounded by her loved ones after her lengthy and courageous 10-year battle with ovarian cancer. Sherry Lee was born in Bellefonte, PA and grew up in Birdsboro, attending Daniel Boone High School, graduating in 1976. She graduated from Penn State University in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science in Insurance and Real Estate. Penn State had a large piece of her heart and Penn State football was one of her favorite things to watch and support. Sherry Lee took great pride in watching her daughter graduate from her alma mater in May. Her career started in 1980 working at Great Valley Savings bank which later became Fulton Bank. She started as a management trainee and worked her way up to Vice-President. She spent 37 years at the bank. Sherry Lee’s favorite place was Betterton Beach, MD, traveling there with her family. She was known to have a drink in hand and relax at the beach or on the front porch of her grandfather’s bungalow. Sherry Lee is survived by her daughter, Stephanie Greaves, who she loved so dearly and her husband of 23 years, David Greaves. She is also survived by her parents, Gerald and Donna Werner and brothers Gerry and Robbie Werner. In addition, she has countless nieces, nephews, cousin, uncles and aunts with whom she was very close. Her dog Daisy was always by her side. Sherry Lee will be remembered as beautiful, strong, fun loving and kind hearted. Her smile was infectious and she was always positive despite any circumstances with her health in later years. She defied the odds and fought a long battle with cancer with grace and strength. She has touched and inspired many lives around her and will be remembered fondly.
