Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute
Sherri L. LeGrand, 42, McClouth, KS passed July 28, 2009 at her home. Memorial services will be held at Haven Baptist Church, 3430 Hutton, Kansas City, KS, 66109. Memorial contributions may be made to Haven Baptist Church. Sherrie was born July 25, 1967 in Bethany, MO. She was a loving parent and wife. Sherrie was a loving foster parent to 18 children. She loved the outdoors and animals. Survivors include, parents, Gary & Roberta Sellens, husband, Dan LeGrand, son, Devan Lee, daughter, Lillyn Yolanda, and step brother, Galen Sellens. When Sherrie found out she was dying, she stated that she wasnt going to die unless she could help 3 people live. I want everyone to know she died of ovarian cancer. I would like everyone to know to look up some information about this disease at www.Cancer.org . Since none of her organs could be used for donation maybe someone will hear her story and pass it on so that someone could detect it early and not have to go through what we have in the past 2 months. Special Thanks to Tom and Anns hair salon. They did Lillyns hair today for me at no charge. Sherrie got her hair cut there for years. Lillyns hair need relaxed. No one else would touch it because of her age and the condition. When they figured out who she was they called me back and said not to worry about the consultation just bring her in to the salon. A special thanks to KU Medical Center, and the doctor and nurse staff who were very nice and considerate. Although the outcome was not what I wanted, they did everything they could. I would just wish we had gone to them earlier. Thank you to Jefferson County Hospice and Friends of Hospice. While Sherrie was in Home Health they heard our story and found out our insurance was exhausted. They told us that we would never see a bill. Heidi was the nurse I called on Monday morning. She came out and was wonderful. She made some phone calls to clear her schedule to be with her for the day. When it came to the afternoon she called the nurse that was on call for the night and switched shift so she could stay with her. Finally, a special thanks to Haven Baptist Church, Sherrie felt like home there.
