Sherry Ann Robertson
January 21, 1949
September 11, 2023
Fort Worth, TX
On the calm morning of Monday, September 11, 2023, the gentle soul of Sherry Ann Robertson took her peaceful departure from this world in her home in Price, Utah.
Born to Floyd Griffin and Reba Dell Cope Nobles on January 21, 1949, in the vibrant town of Amarillo, Texas, Sherry began her life’s journey as the eldest sibling in a lively brood of six. The winds of change took her family from Texas to Shiprock, New Mexico in 1959, and eventually to Towaoc, Colorado by 1964.
In the heart of Cortez, Colorado, in 1967, Sherry entered a new chapter as she married Donald Smith, welcoming two treasures, David and Stephenie, into their lives. Although their paths would later diverge, Sherry’s heart found love again with Leon De Schutter in Bakersfield, California, blessing her with her third son, Tobin De Schutter. Seeking closeness with family, Sherry moved to Utah in 2019, cherishing the bond she shared with her sister, Kathy.
Across her lifetime, Sherry embraced various roles in the professional world. Her passion found a home while serving as a civilian employee for the Fort Worth Police Department and as a dedicated social worker in Houston and Corpus Christi. The community of Price fondly remembers her compassionate hours as a Pink Lady at Castleview Hospital. By her side, always, was her loyal dog, Missy, and she was enveloped by the warmth of her extended family in Price during festive times.
The legacy of Sherry’s love lives on through her children: David (Alison) Smith of Copperas Cove, Texas, Stephenie Smith of Houston, Texas, and Tobin DeSchutter of Springfield, Oregon; her 11 cherished grandchildren; her devoted siblings, Katharine Butler of Price, Utah, Gary (Susan) Nobles of Portman, Texas, Toni (Vernon) Burton of Alvarado, Texas, and Teresa (Larry) Craven of Woodbine, Georgia. Her sister-in-law, Rhonda Nobles of Armstrong, Iowa, and a myriad of nieces and nephews, especially her dear nephew, Kelly (Kara) Maynes, stand as testimony to the family ties she deeply valued.
The stars that have set before her include her doting parents and her youngest brother, Larry Nobles.
As we gather to remember Sherry, a memorial service will be held on Friday, September 22, 2023, at 10:00 a.m., where the embrace of her family will await friends an hour before. Her final resting place will be in Fort Worth, TX, with details to follow. Mitchell Funeral Home of Price and Huntington has gracefully overseen the arrangements.
In these moments of reflection, Sherry’s family extends their deepest gratitude to the Price City Police Department and Mitchell Funeral Home for their unwavering support and compassion during this poignant time.
