Sherry Lyn Maas, 50, Bismarck, passed away Nov. 10, 2013, at her home due to natural causes. Services will be held at 10 a.m. CST Wednesday, Nov. 13, at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Hazen, with the Rev. T. Marcis Jr. officiating. Sherry will be laid to rest near her mother, Harriet Maas at the church cemetery.

Visitation will be one hour prior to the service on Wednesday at the church.

Sherry was born March 20, 1963, in Hazen, a daughter of Melvin Maas and Harriet (Baier) Maas. She was baptized and confirmed at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Hazen. She was raised on a farm south of Hazen, and educated in Hazen graduating from Hazen High School in 1981. She attended Bismarck Stage College for a one year secretarial certification. She worked for Krause Super Valu in Hazen for several years. Then moved to Bismarck and worked for Dan’s Super Valu for a few years. She pursued additional education at Interstate Business College to be a medical assistant and was employed with the State of North Dakota up to her time of death.

Sherry loved baking goodies for family, friends and co-workers. She cherished all her time with family and friends and looked forward to every overnight guest she had. She loved to cater to anybody that stopped by to visit or stay the night. Her wishes were granted in that she was determined to keep working despite her many health challenges. Sherry was a great aunt to all her nieces and nephews.

She is survived by her father, Melvin Maas, Killdeer Hilltop Home of Comfort Nursing Home; her sister, Robyn and Scott Miller and their children, Samantha and Tryston, Beulah; and her brother, Kelly and Steph Maas, Hazen, and their kids, Jenna and Michael, both of Bismarck; one half-sister, Keri Ann Maas, Bismarck; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. A lot of special friends who are too numerous to name for the fear of missing somebody.

A grateful thanks goes out to all whom were in her short life here on earth. She now has been reunited in Heaven with her mother who she dearly missed.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Harriet (Baier) Maas; and a stillborn sister, Melanie JoAnn Maas. (Barbot-Seibel Funeral Home, Hazen and Beulah)
