Sherri L. Andrews, age 56, of Waterloo died Saturday, September 19, 2020 at MercyOne Medical in Waterloo. 

She was born on May 12, 1964 in Waterloo, the daughter of Howard and Phyllis Lewis-Peterson. 

Sherri graduated from Waterloo West High School with the class of 1982. She received her associate’s degree from Hawkeye Community College.

She married Jeff Andrews on September 9, 1995.

Sherri worked at Strategic Imaging, a division of VGM, in Waterloo for 7 years and worked a total of 18 years at VGM; she considered her coworkers there a family. She attended Trinity Lutheran Church in Waterloo.

She enjoyed spending time at the cabin and being outdoors - whether it was enjoying nature’s beauty or time by her pool, hosting a party, swimming, and getting a tan. She had a love of sunflowers, flying kites, and casting her gaze to the sky to find shapes in the clouds. Sherri always appreciated the beauty in a rainbow or sunset. Friends and family were very important to her, especially her husband and daughter. 

Survivors include her husband, Jeff of Waterloo; daughter, Holly of Waterloo; parents, Howard and Phyllis Peterson of Waterloo; 2 brothers, Kevin (Lise) Peterson of Tampa, Fl and Scott Peterson; 2 brothers-in-law, Chuck (Maureen) Andrews and Mike Andrews; 2 sisters-in-law, Lori (Mark) Fisher and Sara (Jerry) Jones all of Waterloo; as well as numerous nieces nephews. 

Preceded in death by her mother and father in-law, Harold and Audrey Andrews; her maternal grandmother, Rachel Lewis; and her paternal grandparents, Albert and Ada Peterson.

    Sherri always brought a smile to my face.  Very outgoing and had a laugh that made me laugh.  She was a very kind person that had a big heart.  She will be greatly missed by everyone that knew her at VGM.

    My condolences to her friends and family.

    Work will be a little less brighter without Sherri. She was such a hard worker and her laugh always made you smile. Strategic Imaging won't be the same without her. She loved to talk about her family so my prayers go out to Jeff and Holly. Thinking of you as you go through this difficult time.

    Sherri had the most infectious laugh and always brought joy when you heard it... and you could definitely hear it!  I will miss her so much.

    Prayers for strength for her family during this difficult time.
