Kerry grew up in Sheldon and graduated from Sheldon High School in 1999, where she was active in FFA, was an original founding member of the Sheldon FFA Chapter, and she played all school sports.

She worked as a Para for Nevada Schools, Heartland Hospital, and she was active in Special Olympics. Her passions were cooking, helping Larry with cattle and being with her family.

Kerry was so full of life. She was a gypsy soul, who lived life to its fullest. Kerry loved love, and all the people in her life. She was a friend to everyone, and never knew a stranger. Everyone could count on her for a smile, a laugh or a hug. And if she could surprise you, or leave you speechless, she was all about it. With everything she loved in her life, she loved her two precious boys the most.
