Smith was a 1988 graduate of Walker High School and a graduate of the University of Alabama. She taught in the Walker County school system until her retirement, to pursue her new job of being a full-time mother.
She was a member of First United Methodist Church of Jasper. She was a person who approached her life with full commitment. She was a Christian and was absolutely committed to her God and her church. She was a committed mother for more than 16 years. And, as her wide circle of close friends will attest, she was a giving and gracious, committed friend.
Sherri is survived by her husband, Dr. Judson Smith; children, Parker Wayne Smith and Lindsey Caroline Smith; parents, Bobby and Brenda Durham; brother, Bobby Durham and his wife, Jainia; niece, Baylee Durham; nephew, Zac Durham; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Wayne and Mary Smith; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
