Obituary of Jeanette Kay Sherpy


Jeanette Kay Sherpy, née Walker, passed away on June 27, 2023, at Lexington Medical Center. She endured a courageous four year battle with cancer with her unbreakable spirit and determination. Jeanette was born on July 9, 1952 in Wichita, Kansas. She will be interred at Woodridge Memorial Park on July 13, 2023. A memorial service will be held for her later in Lexington, South Carolina for her immediate family. 


Jeanette moved to Kansas City, Missouri with her family at an early age, and she graduated from Southwest High School. Jeanette was the loving wife of Ron Sherpy; they married in 1980 and had a loving marriage of forty-three years. She met her husband while working as a logistics analyst at Continental Grain Company. After their marriage, they relocated to Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, for Ron's job with Aramco Oil Company. While abroad, they were able to take advantage of their vacation days and travel, collecting sentimental items and wonderful memories. Both she and Ron worked for Aramco for twenty years before retiring in 2000, relocating to Sarasota, Florida, and then moving to Lexington, South Carolina, in 2005 to be closer to family.


In addition to her husband, Jeanette is survived by her three stepchildren and their partners, Ronald T. Sherpy (Trisha), Rhonda Sherpy (Michele), and Tiffiny Anderson (Scott). She was preceded in death by her granddaughter, Catherine Sherpy in 2013. She also leaves behind five grandchildren, Caroline Sherpy, Chance Anderson, Cade Anderson, Cameron Anderson and Caylee Courtright, and her former daughter-in-law, Allison Fleming. Jeanette’s children, grandchildren and loved ones all loved her as their bonus mother and grandmother. She always had a piece of advice, an interesting topic to discuss, a flair for decorating and design and offered true love, support and friendship. 


Jeanette overcame many difficulties in her life yet she was resilient and a strong wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Her kindness and thoughtfulness will be missed and remembered by the many lives she touched.
