Sherry Marlyn Galbraith Howard, 75, wife of Ronald C. Howard, passed away Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at Bourbon Community Hospital.

Born July 16, 1945 in Paris, Kentucky to the late Harry D. & Martha Margaret Richie Galbraith, she was a retired employee of Jockey International, worked for several years at Conley & Conley Attorneys and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Carlisle. The greatest joy of Sherry’s life came during her retirement; she discovered a deep love of genealogy. She fostered that love through her work at the Nicholas County Public Library as the staff genealogist.   

Additional survivors include son, Anthony Ray Howard, of Lexington; 2 daughters, Robin Carol Yaden, of London, and Jo Ellen (Dennis) Jackson, of Carlisle; a brother, Jerry (Donna) Galbraith, of Mt. Sterling; a sister, Roxanne White, of Carlisle; and a grandson, Derek Jackson. 

Also preceding her in death were a brother, Harry D. Galbraith, Jr., and a sister, Nettie Delores Mangold.

A private burial will take place in the Carlisle Cemetery.

So sorry to hear about Sherry & condolances to the family members. She was one of those people who you wouldn't see often but knew that once you were friends you were always friends. We became friends long ago through church & continued to be "passing" friends whenever we saw each other at the library, running into each other at Walmart, or hollaring to each other when we saw each other in town. Lovely lady who I will miss seeing.

Bless your soul, dear Aunt Sherry.

It was a joy to hear you laugh and a blessing to hear you shoot straight and tell it like it is. You inspired me to investigate our long family history. I think you made a good deal of history yourself. You will be missed greatly.
