Sherry Lynne Street, 54 of Port Orange died peacefully Friday, September 16, 2011 with her husband and family by her side. Sherry was born January 10, 1957 in Bristol, CT. She grew up in the Terryville area and married the love of her life, Richard (Rick) Street on July 1st, 2000. They moved to Port Orange in August 2011. Prior to moving to Florida she worked at NBT bank as a teller where she enjoyed working with her customers. Sherry was true friend to all she met. She had a fun loving personality that could make anyone laugh. She was an outdoor girl who loved fishing and camping. Sherry was ingenious when it came to all kinds of crafts. As an avid reader Sherry could be found with a good book in her hand and her feet up in the hammock on any given free afternoon. Sherry is survived by her devoted husband of 11 years, Richard; three loving children, Nicholas and Daniel Cook and Jennifer Jackson; cherished grandchild, Logan Jackson and Conner due in October; parents, Ellen and Roland Anderson; three brothers, Adrian and his wife, Dixie Anderson, Lee and his wife, Paula Anderson and Jeff and his wife, Lisa Anderson and Rick's parents, Ellen and Joe Johanson. Private family services will be held in Florida with a Life Celebration to be held at a later date in New York and Connecticut. Sherry and Richard’s lives came together later in life, but the poem that follows shares the truth of their two hearts to each other. “We vowed to love forever, As long as stars would shine. I pledged my heart and soul to you, You had promised to be mine. Hand in hand we went, along the road of life. Two hearts beating as one, Equal to all strife. We had our joy and sorrow too, Our plans on things to be. We lived for one another, Love was our magic key. We vowed to love forever, As long as stars would shine. We both were well aware, Forever is a long, long time.”
