Sherrill Longfield Obituary

Sherrill Longfield, 75, of Apache Junction, AZ passed away peacefully in her home following a short battle with cancer. Sherrill was born in Grand Rapids, MI to the late Charles and Virginia (Waddell) Longfield. After raising her six children, she moved to Mesa, AZ.

She was preceded in death by her husband, James Stirnes; a sister, Margaret (Luther) Pollok; and a brother-in-law, James Lohrberg.

Sherrill is survived by her children, Sandra (Paul) Baroni of Calumet, MI, Wendy (Charles) Benefield of Kissimmee, FL, Virginia (Steve) Diano of Las Vegas, NV, Susan Johnson (Tim Kenney) of Grand Rapids, MI, Christopher Matthew (Lisa) Blake of Bithlo, FL, and Mary Blake (Raymond Powell) of Christmas, FL. She will also be missed by her 15 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren; her sister, Sue Lohrberg of Mesa, AZ; her brothers, Charles (Heidi) Longfield and Thomas (Betty) Longfield both of Grand Rapids, MI; as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She also had many special friends whom she held dear and considered them as bonus family.

Before she passed, Sherrill was able to fulfill a wish of hers by visiting family and friends in one of her favorite locations, Cocoa Beach, FL. She will be missed most for her infectious laugh, her generous heart, and for telling things as they are.

A Celebration of Life is planned for Thursday, May 4, 2017 at the Senior Cottages community room, 251 N 114th St, Apache Junction, AZ at 2:00pm. Arrangements are being handled by Superstition Cremation & Funeral Services, Apache Junction, AZ.

    I’ve known Sherrill for a very long time. We have had a lot of laughs, and tears, some great memories. It was an honor being her friend.
    Will miss you my friend.

    My deepest and heartfelt sympathy to Sherrill’s family and extended family at this sad time. I will always remember her as a wonderful person who always took time to visit her aunt and uncle and the rest of my family when she came back to Grand Rapids.
    Rest In Peace Sherrill.

    Sherrill was truly a delight and I am so blessed to call her a friend. It always made me feel happy to spend time with her even if it was only once a week at dominos and an occasional trip to IKEA. She will be missed but never forgotten.

    I will miss my Grandmother “grams” she was absolutely amazing. She had the best laugh I’ve ever known. Even in her pictures you can just hear her laugh. She will be deeply missed by our entire family and all of her friends. I am so happy I was able to visit when I did. I love you Grams and I love all of my family.
    Love, Anne,Dan,Makayla,Daniell,David,Mekenzie,Nathaniel

    We loved Sherrill. She was a friend to both my husband & I. We always looked forward to her visits to Overgaard in the summer. She was an amazing woman with a long list of attributes. She was a joy to have in the quilt shop, to meet for breakfast or share lunch. I miss her humour, and her friendship.
    We will miss Sherrill very much.

    I just found this on facebook- I worked with Sherrill taking care of plants for a few years. She taught me SO much about life! Her constant smile, sense of humor, and acceptance of all things meant and mean so much to me. Sherrill is responsible for my ability to finally forgive my mother for things that happened many years ago. For that, I am eternally grateful. Prayers to the family- Thank you for sharing such a special person.
