A children's hair stylist, Sherri worked for RG's Young People in Britton for about ten years until their third child arrived. In recent years, she was a homemaker and enjoyed participating in their children's activities. Times with her family were cherished events for Sherri. She loved just being together, building memories that could be stored away and brought forward to enjoy again and again. She believed, that memories are wonderful gifts. Sherri was a faithful member of Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, having joined in 1987. She loved her church family and they loved her. She was a very special young lady. As she grew weaker in body, her spirit seemed to shine stronger and brighter, and she was an inspiration to all.

She is survived by her husband, Loyall Alan Goodson, of the home; one daughter, Cherise Goodson Stiles and husband, Daniel ; three sons, Clint Goodson, Cole Goodson and Colorado Goodson; mother, Ruth Reed and husband, Fred of Choctaw, OK; father, Joe Welch of Henderson, Texas; mother-in-law, Laura Goodson of Midwest City, OK; sister, Michelle Smith of OKC; two brothers, Charles Welch and wife, Hazel of Yukon, OK, and Daryl Welch and wife, Alicia of Florida; brother-in-law, Larry Goodson of OKC; niece, Richelle Smith; two nephews: Christopher Goodson and Corey Goodson; an uncle, Howard "Buddy" Welch of Henderson, Texas; and numerous other loving relatives and close friends.
