Minnie Faye Sherman, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and sister was born on July 12, 1932, in Powell (Boone Hollow), Missouri. She peacefully passed away on June 9, 2024, at the age of 91.

In 1968, Minnie and her husband Paul Sherman moved from Joplin, MO, and made their home in Pryor, Oklahoma, where they established the Foremost Milk Distributorship and later built, owned, and operated the Sirloin Express Restaurant. Together, they created a beautiful life full of family, faith, and friendship. 

Minnie was preceded in death by her loving husband Paul Sherman, her parents Robert James and Stella Cooper, her sons Mike Sherman and Brad Sherman, her daughter-in-law Rosetta Sherman, her grandson Corey Sherman, and her sister Geraldine Daniels. Their legacy lives on in the hearts and memories of those who knew and loved them.

She also leaves behind a cherished legacy of 25 great-grandchildren.

Minnie will be remembered for her honesty, her spunk, her hard work,  and her dedication to her family. She loved to play the piano, sing, and play a mean game of Pitch. She will be deeply missed and forever remembered for the impact she made on the lives of those around her.
