Sherry’s service will be livestreamed at 2 pm, Friday, September 16, 2022

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Sherry Lyn (Job) Harrison. But we are sure she is happily in the arms of her daughter Sonia.

Sherry Lyn Job Harrison was a “mom” to many. Many family and friends will miss her giving soul, whether it was a shirt or a meal. She would give you the shirt off her back if it would help you.

Sherry was born to Betty Jean and Walter (Bud) Job Sr. on September 29, 1956, at St. Vincent’s Hospital just outside of Portland Oregon. She went to be with her beloved daughter Sonia on September 3, 2022, just short of her 66th birthday.

Sherry’s life started with two younger brothers Larry and Fritz. She went to grade school in Tumalo, Oregon and later attended high school in Cleveland, ND. She moved to Bakersfield, CA and was united in marriage to Albert Lee Harrison on October 20, 1979. From this union Sonia Jean was born February 5, 1983. Sherry and Sonia lived in Fargo many years. Unexpectedly Sherry lost Sonia on August 14, 2015.

Sherry is survived by her father and stepmom Walter (Bud) and Betty (Geogl) Job. Three brothers, Larry, Cogswell, ND; Walter (Fritz), Finley, ND; Jason (Loeghan), Littlerock, CA; and her beloved birds: Simon, Scooby, and Shakira.

Sherry will be met by her mother, Betty Jean, and her beloved daughter Sonia.

A celebration of life will take place September 16th at Boulger Funeral Home at 2 pm with a visitation one hour prior. Burial will be September 24th at 1 pm in Windsor, ND with a lunch to follow at the Windsor Hall.

  2. Sherry!
    I still can’t believe this! My heart is so broken. I know you are no longer in any pain and finally holding Sonia in your arms…and for that I am truly happy for you!!! You were such a big part of my life so long…I’m not sure how to live this life without you but I do know that I will see you again!!! Rip my dear friend and know you are truly loved and deeply missed!!!!!

  3. Hi! My name is Special Carter I am Sherry Harrison’s niece. I never got a chance to meet her, but we had some conversations after my uncle passed away she seemed to be very nice and sweet!! Love you Auntie!!

  4. Dear family, Sorry for your loss. Sherry will be greatly missed, as well as seeing Simon her parrot. We enjoyed hearing many stories from Sherry about her life and birds specifically Simon. She was a great lady. Every summer she helped my brother plant a garden and tend it with him. The cucumbers they harvested she’d make my brothers favorite cucumber salad. My brother always enjoyed playing pinochle with Sherry. She definitely had many talents. God Bless Sherry! Sherry is able to join her daughter once again whom she missed greatly. We will miss Sherry and Simon greatly! With love, Renelda, Steve, and Delrae

  5. So sad to hear of her passing yet joyful for her being with her mom and daughter! We had great fun in 6th and 7th grade having sleepovers and singing on the school bus! A good friend indeed! All my love and prayers for the loved ones left behind to find peace and strength in her memories!

  6. My heart is broken. Sherry and I were just getting to know each other – as we are cousins and I was so excited to connect- we had plans to get together after I moved back to ND end of this month.
    Many prayers to all that were close to her.
