SHERI L. MCMILLAN, age 65, of Reynoldsburg, Ohio, passed away on January 8, 2022 at Riverside Methodist Hospital surrounded by her husband and children. Sheri was born October 17, 1956 to the (late) Harold and Edith (Spires) Matthews in Columbus, OH.

Sheri retired from Reynoldsburg City Schools as French Run Elementary Librarian, where she shared her love of literature with hundreds of students. Sheri enjoyed exploring artistic and crafty endeavors and shared her many creative and beautiful creations with her family and friends. By example and active support she encouraged the same love of exploring new creative outlets in her children. She could often be found absorbed in a book with one of her beloved cats snuggling nearby. By sharing her love of literature Sheri opened a world of stories, learning, and adventure to both her children and grandchildren.

Most of all, Sheri's quick wit, quirky sense of humor, fondness for remembering obscure commercial jingles and movie quotes, and boundless love for her husband, children, and grandchildren will be greatly missed. Sheri and Richard's combined strong belief in family traditions provided the foundation for much shared love and many happy memories that will be cherished long after her passing.

Sheri is survived by her loving husband, Richard McMillan; children, Matthew McMillan, Megan (Jeff) Stallard; grandchildren, Fletcher and Lydia Stallard; sister, Sandra Matthews; sisters and brothers in-law, Doug and Sam McMillan, Deb and Nori Ito, Brenda Matthews; nieces, Marci Webber and Elaine (Michael) Lafferty and nephews, Mitchell McMillan and Mack Ito; grandnieces, Lily and Belle Lafferty, Brittany and Cassidy Webber, and grandnephew, Clayton Lafferty. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother Robert Matthews and step-father Franklin Maerker.

Her family will receive guests at a Memorial Gathering to be held on FRIDAY, January 21, 2022, from 6-7:30 PM at the Pfeifer Funeral Home.
