SHERBURNE: Margaret May Smith Sherwood, our loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great-great-grandmother, went to be with the Lord on January 16, 2021. At the age of 91, she passed with her family by her side.
Margaret “Maggie” was born on August 9, 1929 at Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown, a daughter of Charles and Hazel Hull Smith. Margaret attended Sherburne school. After that, she worked at the Bluebird Restaurant, TACO, Chesebrough Ponds and Colgate University, from which she retired in 1994. On August 31, 1947, she married Claude Sherwood who predeceased her in 2001. They had 54 loving years together. Claude and Maggie raised five children, Laura (Steve) Eaton, Larry (Melida) Sherwood, Wayne (Jenn) Sherwood, Sharon (Butch) Enslow and Shelly (Russell) Solloway. She had 20 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great-grandchildren, and her feline furbaby loverboy.
Maggie loved to travel, was a member of the Willa Wanna Riding Club, Del-se-Nango fiddlers club, loved playing cards at the Senior Center, and was loved by all. Maggie was always willing to help others and was a good-hearted friend to everyone.
There will be a celebration of her life held in the spring.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Burgess & Tedesco Funeral Home, 10 S. Main St., Sherburne.

We have both known our friends the Sherwoods, all our lives. Staying in your home, Claude built on the hill, occasionally as a child was the thrill of my youth. So many children, so much fun. I learned a lot of kind things from Margaret & Claude Sherwood, they were very generous. You must be proud of them. They will be missed.

Maggie and Claude Sherwood and family lived not far from us outside Poolville for many years. Our girls and the the Sherwood children were always good friends. No one around was any kinder than Maggie and Claude. so many fond memories! Our thoughts and prayers are with all your family. I was told once that God picks only the loveliest blooms for His Heavenly Bouquet and he surely picked a beautiful blossom this time. Love and much sympathy to all of you- Anne(Stone) Pounds and Cheryl Stone
