THOMSON SheriPosted: January 27th, 2015
It is with heavy hearts and unthinkable sorrow that we announce the unexpected passing of SHERI THOMSON on January 20, 2015. Sheri was deeply cherished by her parents, Barbara and Barry McFadden, her children, Ashley and Justin Thomson, her brother Jon McFadden and lots of family and close friends. We are blessed to have shared a million beautiful moments, made vibrant by her joyful spirit, her kind heart, and her easy smile. She will be missed more than words can ever say. Sheri was born and raised in Lethbridge and was very involved in the community. She was a talented actress who performed with Lethbridge Musical Theatre, Playgoers, and at the U of L. As Program Director of the Conservatory of Performing Arts, she prepared many young students to compete in the Kiwanis Music and Speech Arts Festival, and also taught Public Speaking at LCC. Never one to shy away from a new challenge, Sheri changed careers in mid-life and joined the family business, eventually becoming General Manager of McFadden Honda as a respected businesswoman. Sheri worked hard and played harder. Whether it was dancing barefoot in the grass at summer folk festivals, walking with her dogs in the coulees (no matter what the weather,) tending her flower garden or traveling the world, she seized every moment with boundless energy, child-like curiosity, and pure joie de vivre. Sheri spent her final days in Cuba on a dive trip with close friends and passed away suddenly in her quarters of natural causes. A Celebration of Life will be held on February 5th at 1:00pm at the Evangelical Free Church, 4717 – 24 Avenue South, Lethbridge, with Pastor Ian Lawson officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Doctors Without Borders (www.msf.ca ).
