In loving memory of Sheryl Lynn Greene (Danforth) Winsor

Sheryl was a beacon of selflessness and service. Her journey through life was as varied and rich as the many places she called home. From the historic charm of New England to the vibrant landscapes of Utah’s Dixie, Sheryl’s life was a tapestry woven with love, care, and an unwavering commitment to others.

As a mother, Sheryl’s heart knew no bounds. Her two sons, the pride of her life, were nurtured with her enduring love and the wisdom of her experiences. Her guidance was their compass; her support their foundation.

The oldest sister among five, Sheryl’s kinship was a source of strength and joy. Her bond with her siblings was a testament to the enduring nature of family, a bond that neither time nor distance could destroy.

To her nieces and nephews, Auntie Sheryl was a treasure trove of stories, a gleeful presence, and a personal friend. Her ability to make each feel uniquely special was a gift that will be cherished in memories.

Her life’s journey took her from the shores of the East Coast to the heartland of the Midwest; from the grandeur of the Mountain States to the serenity of the Northwest; and across the world to Okinawa. Each place was enriched by her presence. Each community was touched by her generosity.

Sheryl’s professional path reflected her innate desire to serve. As a Certified Nursing Assistant and Licensed Practical Nurse, she extended her care to the elderly, the handicapped, and children. Her dedication to military families was recognized with the esteemed Molly Pitcher Award, a symbol of her profound impact on the lives she touched.

As a servant in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Sheryl was the epitome of following Christ’s pure love.   Service to others and her desire to learn were obvious to those who knew her. She lived her belief that the true essence of life is following Christ’s example of love - a lesson she imparted to her children.

Sheryl’s love story with her husband Colburn spanned 33 years of partnership and adventure. Together, they navigated life’s journey, their love a constant through every change and challenge.

Sheryl’s legacy is one of compassion and service. She left the indelible mark of her love on every life she touched. She leaves behind her beloved husband Colburn Winsor, her sons Abran Stanley and Anson Winsor, and her sister Susan Benavides. She was met in the next life by her parents Richard and Mildred Danforth, her sisters Jodi Fennessy, Diane Bisson, and Valorie Danforth, and two fathers-in-law Walter Winsor and Larry Stanley.

Her spirit, a guiding light of service and love, will continue to shine in the hearts of those she leaves behind. Sheryl Lynn Greene (Danforth) Winsor -- a life colorfully lived; a soul profoundly missed.
