She was born August 4, 1940 in Clovis, New Mexico to Robert Weldon Hammack and Guarrie Stanley Hodges Hammack.  Sherry grew up and attended school in Clovis where she graduated high school in 1958.  She married her sweetheart, Roy Weldon Entz, on October 12, 1958 in Clovis, New Mexico.  Sherry and Roy later moved to Oklahoma where she enjoyed nothing more than tending to their children and making their house a home.   She worked outside of the home as a receptionist for American Bank and later as a medical assistant for Dr. Brownell.  Sherry’s faith was very important to her.  She attended First United Methodist Church where she has been a member for the past 44 years.  She was also a member of the Gad-A-Bout Square Dancing Club for 11 years, a hobby she enjoyed tremendously.  Sherry’s pride and joy were her grandchildren who she loved spending time with.
