Sheryl J Williams, 53, of Grand Junction, Colo., passed away April 29, 2009 from a motorcycle accident.

Sheryl was born December 20, 1955 to Jeff M. Gunter and Sherma Gunter Miller in Amarillo, Texas. She graduated from high school in Canyon, Texas in 1974. She attended Mesa College where she played basketball and later earned her RN degree on May 7, 1988.

Sheryl married Jay A. Williams in July 1976. They had two children, Jacob Barry and Nicha Ann Williams. Sheryl loved her husband and took great delight in her beautiful grandchildren.



Sheryl had a generous heart and a playful, loving spirit. Her smile was infectious and she could literally light up a room. She made everyone feel they were special. Sheryl was skilled at painting, loved boating at Highline and Lake Powell and loved her new yellow motorcycle. She loved her patients and was loved by many during her years of employment at St. Mary’s Hospital, Hospice of Grand Valley, Rocky Mountain HMO Home Health Care and finally at St. Mary’s Imaging Pavilion. She would cry when she lost a patient and would rejoice when a patient was in remission.

She is survived by her husband Jay; her son, Jacob Barry (Wendy) Williams; daughter, Nicha Ann Smith; four grandchildren, Anna and Hunter Smith, Bailey and Brooke Williams; her nother and stepfather, Sherma and Donald Miller; three brothers, Jeff Gunter of Parachute, Colo, Michael Owens of Grand Junction, Colo, and Tim Owens of Ft. Collins, Colo.; two sisters, Marlene Owens of Grand Junction, Colo. and Lea Linam (Dennis) of Hobart, Okla.; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.



She was preceded in death by her father, Jeff Gunter.
