Obituary - Mary Lynn Sherwood

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 4/12/24 | 4/12/24

Mary Lynn Sherwood, of Fultonham, New York, fell asleep in death at the age of 70 on Saturday, April 6, 2024. 

Mary Lynn was born on November 29, 1953, to John and Mary Greening in Mt. Kisco, New York. She married the love of her life, George Sherwood, on February 21, 1976. They built a beautiful family and home with their two sons, filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories

Mary Lynn had a variety of occupations throughout her life including driving preschool children for Barmen Enterprises and later Coxsackie Transport, but being a mother and Nanna (grandmother), were by far her greatest achievements. She was a beloved member of the Cobleskill Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses, and those who knew her will remember a strong woman whose compassion knew no bounds, going above and beyond to help everyone. She was dedicated to her faith and family and poured her heart and soul into both. 

In addition to her roles as a wife and mother, Mary Lynn was a treasured mother-in-law, a cherished friend and confidante to many. Her infectious spirit and genuine kindness left an indelible mark on everyone she met. 

She is survived by her husband of over 48 years, George Sherwood; two sons, Bradley (Melinda) Sherwood of Fultonham, and Michael Sherwood of Fultonham; three grandchildren, Noah, Cody, and Ethan Sherwood; brothers, John Greening and Ronald (Kerrie) Greening; and nieces and nephew. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by a stepfather, Olav Gabrielson, and sister-in-law, Denise Greening. 

All are warmly invited to attend the Memorial Service that will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at 2:00 P.M., at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 3706 NY-145, Cobleskill, NY. 

Memorial donations are requested to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 or at
