1959 – 2020
SHERRIE JANET LOUISE SHUTTLEWORTH (née Morand) of Lethbridge, AB, beloved wife of 42 years to Reid, passed away suddenly on Friday, October 30th, 2020 at the age of 60 years.
Sherrie was born in Calgary, Alberta October 31st, 1959. She moved to Lethbridge in 1977 to attend university and pursue a career in education, after she graduated in 1981. Along the way, she met Reid and they were married on October 13, 1978. Together, they had two children: Joshua and Tamara.
Sherrie had many loves in life, but none were more important to her than her children and grandchildren. Sherrie will be lovingly remember by her husband, Reid and her two children: Joshua (Chantelle) Shuttleworth and Tamara (Brent) Tiessen. Nana will be greatly missed by her grandchildren: Cyrus Shuttleworth, Sophia Tiessen, Penelope Tiessen and Wyatt Shuttleworth. Sherrie also leaves to mourn her mother-in-law, Lauretta Shuttleworth, sisters-in-law, Judy (Tony) Byers and Lisa (Scott) Severton, sister Tracy Duthie and her brother Charles (Jennifer) Morand, along with numerous nieces and nephews. Cody, Conner, Meagan, Spencer, Paige, Justin, Jesse, Hollie, Levi, Amy and Mollie all held a special place in her heart.
Sherrie’s second greatest love was teaching. She taught for 34 1/2 years before retiring in 2015. Along the way, she taught at Goldridge Hutterite Colony, John Davidson Elementary, Coalhurst Elementary, Sunnyside Elementary, Jenny Emery Elementary and Dorothy Dalgleish. She loved her students and always wanted to make sure that she had done her best to make sure each and every one of them were prepared for all the challenges that were ahead of them. Along the way in her extra time, she was a fitness fanatic; playing soccer, running marathons, ultra-marathons and working out at the gym were all part of her daily life.
A special thank you to Deb, Karen and Laurie for all their love and support.
At Sherrie’s request, there will be no formal funeral service.
At the family’s request, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Sherrie’s name to: Coalhurst Partnership Association for Literacy (Box 980, Coalhurst T0L 0V0).

My deepest sympathy to Sherrie’s family and friends.
She was someone to look up to as an educator and athlete.
I consider myself fortunate to have known Sherrie in my growing up years. She was one of the dedicated mom’s who accepted the task of feeding and sheltering the friends of her children. I always knew I would be looked after if spending the night before a snowboard trip or heading on a soccer tournament. She always made me feel accepted, comfortable, and safe even though I was a brat. She was a beautiful example of quiet strength and kindness. Deeply saddened by your loss Josh, Reid, and Tamara. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
Very saddened to hear of Sherrie’s passing. I remember her as a kind, generous and welcoming woman. My heart goes out to Reid, their children and grandchildren during this difficult time.
