Sheryl Steen, age 66, passed away peacefully at home on November 2, 2022, surrounded by family.
Sheryl was born in Bowling Green, Ohio to the late Dorothy (Snyder) and Theodore North.
Sheryl earned an Associate’s Degree in Nursing and worked the night shift in the Emergency Ward at Wood County Hospital for 48 years. Nursing was Sheryl’s calling, during her career she had the honor and privilege, to care for patients and create lasting friendships with coworkers who gave her strength and courage through her journey and fostered her desire to care for others. Her love and caring nature went beyond her friends, family, and patients, to her love of animals. Sheryl was an animal advocate and rescued countless animals throughout the years and has passed this love onto her children. Through the years, Sheryl was an avid reader, of which science fiction was her favorite genre.
Everyone who knew Sheryl felt her big heart and giving nature. She will be missed especially by her children, with whom she spent her years watching grow. Sheryl is survived by her two beloved children: Brian Steen and Andrea Abrams; Sisters: Valerie (Karl) Kolmer; Dianne(Jeffrey) Smith; and Anita(Ray) Enriquez; stepfather Orville Buehrer; and step- siblings: Harley, Bengy, Vicki, and Todd. She was preceded in death by her parents Dorothy and Theodore, and stepbrother Dennis.
The family would like to thank Hospice of Northwest Ohio for all their care, and a special thank you to Lisa her case manager.
Contributions in her honor may be gifted to the Wood County Humane Society.
A celebration of life gathering for Sheryl will be held at a later date.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Deck-Hanneman Funeral Home, Bowling Green, Ohio, www.hannemanfuneralhomes.com.
