On April 17, 2023, Brenda Sheryl Gardner passed away peacefully at age 82 at her home in Mesa, Arizona. Sheryl was the mother of five children. However, many people considered her their surrogate and part-time mother. Mom loved growing up in Mesa AZ, raising her family in Torrance CA, and retiring to Lakeside AZ.
When Sheryl’s children were young, the phrase “stay-at-home-mom” didn’t exist. It was normal for women to stay home with the children while their husbands worked. But even by the standards of that time, Sheryl was a wonderful wife and mother. She cared deeply for her family, church, and community. She was always working on a “project” to benefit her family and friends. She loved sewing, fashion, and movies.
Sheryl is survived by her husband Bryce, sons Gary (Carolyn) and Ty (Jill), daughters Jolene (Greg), Diana (Tim), and Amy (Jeremy), and twenty grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren.
