I have numerous memories with Mrs. Cornelius. Like DuWayne Nash, the memories go back to our high school days. We use to go to her house to celebrate our state championships we accomplished in basketball and track and field our senior year. She was always a great host when her son Mike, invited us over numerous times, sometimes unannounced. She always smiled when we walked in. She did enjoy trips to the horse track in Arlington after retirement. I was invited to one of those parties when Mike was in town. RIP Mrs. Cornelius!!

It is with complete sadness that I send my Condolences regarding the passing of Sherma. She is and was a fine, beautiful and intelligent woman. Her son Micheal and I met in 3rd grade at St. Elizabeth's grade school. I knew she was an avid and competitive bowler. I will miss her but I will always think of her. Ps I did not know her middle name Emily. How sweet. DuWayne Nash

I'll always remember Sherma as a friend and mentor at Washington High School. She and Val Olson took me under their wings, getting me involved in graduation ceremonies, school dances, and eventually entering the guidance department. Sherma was also a bowling star- she tutored me and soon we were bowling twice a week! After retirement Sherma enjoyed attending Guidance Directors' luncheons with Grant and myself, also WHS retiree luncheons. Thank you, Sherma....RIP

I taught with Sherma at North Division in the early 60's. She was a great teacher and was well respected by her colleagues. Remember the good times as it brings smiles instead of tears. The family remains in my thoughts and prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
