Sherian Ann (Avery) Kellenberger died September 9, 2016 in Moorhead, MN after a brief illness. Sherian was born March 23, 1948 in Portsmouth, Virginia, the daughter of William and Anna (Olson) Avery.
Sheri had the privilege of living in many places growing up as a child due to her father’s career in the Navy. She lived in Kentucky, California and Hawaii eventually returning to her mother’s home state of Minnesota. Sheri graduated from Lake Park High School in 1967, and also attended the State School of Science in Wahpeton for Nursing, and Moorhead State for Elementary Education.
In 1969, Sherian married Curtis Oland in Breckenridge, MN. They had 3 children together, and lived in Burnsville, MN, Lakeville, MN and Donnelly, MN. Sheri worked a variety of part-time jobs while her children were in school such as a school secretary, and travel agent for AAA. In 1986, Sherian married Mark Kellenberger. They shared 2 children together. They lived in Chanhassen, MN and Sabetha, KS. Sherian then started her career as a Photographic Artist, and worked for many photographers.
One of Sheri’s greatest joys and accomplishment was raising her 5 children. She was also an avid reader, incredible cook, and gifted artist. She was talented at anything she tried. The thing that she enjoyed most was spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
