1960 – 2017

It is with heavy hearts and great sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of SHERI JANET MARIE VAN NISTELROOY, beloved wife of Albert Van Nistelrooy and cherished mother to Samantha, Braden and Stephanie. The Lord took her to be with himself on Friday, January 13, 2017 at the age of 56 years.

Sheri is survived by her loving husband Albert; daughter Samantha (Steve) Broderson and their children Mckinley, Austin, Grace and Cooper; son Braden (Joelyne) Van Nistelrooy and their son Ryder; daughter Stephanie (Matthew) Dover; mother Frances Ostrup; siblings Karen (Dave) Lakusta and family, Cindy (Jim) Toone and family, Jim (Karen) Ostrup and family and Glen (Jody) Ostrup and family.

Sheri was predeceased by her father James Ostrup and brother Neil Ostrup.

Sheri had such a zest for life that even her birth was premature. She came into this world on June 21st, 1960 and never looked back.

Sheri was born in Edmonton and was raised and educated in Picture Butte, wed her husband Albert and settled in Enchant to raise a family.

Sheri loved people and joined in many community activities. She was a member of her church choir and headed a shoe box program with St. Lucia for 20 years. She was on the Travers C.W.L. executive for many years as well as the board of the Enchant Walkabout Society and involved with the Enchant Community Association.

Sheri’s first loves were her husband, three children, their spouses and five grandchildren. So many aspects of her life revolved around them.

Her second love was to make everyone she met smile and feel important. She was very good at this as anyone who knew her would agree. She cherished her many friends and family and had a special place for each in her heart.

A Prayer Service will be held at SOUTHMINSTER UNITED CHURCH, 1011 – 4th Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB, on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 7:00 P.M. with Sharon Hagel officiating.

A Celebration of Sheri’s Life will be held at SOUTHMINSTER UNITED CHURCH, on Friday, January 20, 2017 at 11:00 A.M. with Father Kevin Tumback celebrating.

A Private Family Interment will follow the reception at the Enchant Cemetery.

In memory of Sheri, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
