She was born Jan. 1, 1948, in Alton, the daughter of Jean and Lorene Peek. On July 25, 1969, she married Walter William Huber at St. Mary’s Church in Alton. He preceded her in death.
She is survived by her daughter, Lori Tassinari of Alton, and grandchildren, Marc Tassinari and Mia Tassinari of Alton.

Sherry was a 1966 graduate of Marquette High School and attended the University of Missouri in Columbia. She was employed by Dr. Thomas Morrissey for 15 years until his retirement and then worked as a financial adviser for Compas Network until her retirement.
Sherry’s greatest joys in life were her grandchildren, on whom she doted. She treasured her lifelong friends and never met a stranger. Sherry was an avid reader and enjoyed movies, especially ones with happy endings. She was a caregiver to anyone in need and loved animals. Sherry’s bubbly personality and ready smile will be missed by all who knew her.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Bill; and a son, Marc.
As per Sherry’s wishes, a prayer service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 5, 2015, at Elias, Kallal and Schaaf Funeral Home in Godfrey, with Deacon Bill Kessler officiating.
Memorials may be made in Sherry’s name to the Five A’s Humane Society in Godfrey, St. Ambrose Catholic School, and by showing kindness to one another. The family wishes to thank everyone at Provision Living and St. Anthony’s Hospice for their devoted care during Sherry’s short stay there, as well as Deacon Bill Kessler of St. Ambrose Parish for his support.
