Flois Sharry was born August 9, 1921, in Seminole County, Oklahoma to Luther and Gertrude Bennett. Her twin sister, Lois, was born just a few minutes later. She attended school in Colony, Oklahoma where she met her future husband, Cecil Sharry.
They were children of the Great Depression and members the greatest generation. Cecil served in Europe during World War II and Flois stayed-home to care for their two daughters. After moving to Fresno in 1953, Flois worked full time. Her first job was with Coopers Department Store and she retired from IRS. They attended St. Paul's Methodist Church, and were instrumental in the founding of Wesley Methodist Church where they proudly became charter members.
She and Cecil loved to travel the US in their motor home with their friends from the RV Clubs. They went to every state in the continental US. Each of their grandchildren got to accompany them on at least one of these trips.
Needlework and sewing was her passion. Each of her children and grandchildren have a treasured piece that she created.
She was predeceased by her husband of 63 years, Cecil Sharry, her parents, Luther and Gertrude Bennett, sister, Jewel Deonier, and twin sister, Lois Sharry.
She is survived by her daughters and their husbands; Lola & Gene Dudley of Star, Idaho and Wanda & Kent Stark of Fresno. She gave wonderful Grandma memories to her grandchildren and their spouses: Susan Johnson, Shelly Pereira, Carol Stiles, Blake Dudley, and Lora Owens. Her great grandchildren were her pride and joy: Katie Johnson, Kellie Johnson, James Dudley, Jaxson Dudley, and Makena Pereira.
Special thanks to Robert and Tommieann Sharry for all the love and support they gave during her brief stay in Oklahoma.
