Obituary of Sheryl Ann Mason
Sheryl Ann Mason (age 75), surrounded by her family, peacefully entered eternal life with Christ Jesus on January 6, 2023, in Lodi, California.
Sheryl Mason was born in Great Falls, MT to Howard Albert Betty Jane Wiederrich on April 26, 1947. She attended Big Sandy High School, Big Sandy, MT, as well as cosmetology school in Seattle Washington. She married Stephen Mason on April 27, 1985, in Lodi California. She worked at many places, including Lodi Day Nursery School, Farmers & Merchants Bank, Lasting Impressions, and Curves Fitness Center in Lodi California. Sheryl was a loving wife and mother of five children, many grandchildren, and greatgrandchildren. She was also a four-time breast cancer survivor and had a passion for ministering to those who were suffering from cancer.
She was a great woman of faith and for over 50 years devoted herself to God’s word as well as attending Bethel Open Bible Church, Lodi, California and later Calvary Reformed Church, Stockton, California where she was actively involved in serving as choir member as well as singles and women’s ministries. She always had encouraging and ministering words for anyone she met despite what she may have been going through herself. She brought joy, sincerity, faithfulness, steadfastness and so much love to wherever she was. The twinkle in her eye and her contagious chuckle and smile can never be forgotten. Sheryl is preceded in death by Howard Wiederrich, Betty Spooner-Wiederrich, stepmother Gwen Wiederrich, and son Marcus Whitmire-Mason.
