Sherrie was born August 7, 1975 to Oravella Sue (Branum) Covey in Dallas, Texas.

Sherrie then attained her Certified Nursing Assistant certificate from the Great Plains Technology Center in Frederick, Oklahoma in 2011 and served as a home health nurse and caretaker for about 10 years. She had also held several positions in the Altus area before that. Sherrie and Rudy Rodriguez were united in marriage and spent twenty years together before she passed away. She played basketball all the way through school and enjoyed traveling and spending time with friends, family and her grandchildren.
