Obituary for Sheryl Rae Karow

Sheryl Rae Karow, 61, of Eau Claire, WI – beloved sister, aunt, and friend, passed away peacefully with her twin sister, Sharon, and long-time friend Rose by her side, after a long and courageous battle with cancer on Friday, July 28, 2017.
Sheryl was born in Eau Claire, WI on October 30, 1955 to William and Eldora (Knutson) Karow. She graduated from Memorial High School in 1974 and continued on to receive a degree in accounting from CVTC in 1991.
Sheryl worked as a courier for Fed-Ex Express for 15 years before fighting her second battle with cancer. Sheryl was one of the most cheerful, entertaining, and kind hearted people anyone could ever meet; she always had a big smile on her face. Her family and friends were the most important things to her. She loved spending time “Up North” in Gordon, WI- playing cards and games. She also found ways to add a twist to the games to make them more interesting and fun. Sheryl enjoyed watching movies, all outdoor activities including yard work, biking, walking the dogs, riding motorcycle and building things. She always had a kind word for everybody and would help anyone in need. She was also very fond of a good bloody mary (light on the Worcestershire) with a Miller Lite chaser and going to the casino.
Sheryl is survived by her twin sister Sharon Karow, sister Lorretta (Bernie) Bertrang, brother Richard (Shirley) Karow, forever friend Rose Brindle, and nieces, Tracy (Lee) Trippler, Heidi (Guy) Gorton, Sarah (Scot) Wiedenfeld; nephew, Brian (Jessica) Bertrang, and Eric Stallings (children Ally & Sean); Also great-nieces Maddy and Kayla, and great-nephews Pierce, Gunnar, Wyatt, Gavin, Alex, and Max; Aunts Delores (Lee) Risler and Dorothy Serum, many wonderful cousins, friends, and her beloved dogs Baby Cakes and Beaner.
Sheryl is preceded in death by her parents William and Eldora Karow, niece Lisa Stallings who left us way too soon in June of 2017; aunts, uncles and cousins.
Visitation will be held from 4 – 7 pm on Friday, August 4, 2017 at Stokes, Prock & Mundt Funeral Chapel, 535 S. Hillcrest Pkwy, Altoona with a Celebration Of Life at 7 pm. To honor Sheryl’s request, spaghetti will be served.
We all love you very much. You will always be in our hearts forever and missed immensely.
