Sherman,
Shirley “Hope”
Born May 4, 1929 to Margaret and Frank Gray of Mt. Washington in Pittsburgh, PA. Age 89 passed away May 8, 2018 at McMurray Hills Manor, McMurray, PA. Wife of Miles K. Sherman who preceded her in death in 2003 but is now reunited in heaven. Mother of Kingsley Sherman (Theresa), Sharon Fertall (William), and Tracy Sherman; grandmother of Frank, Michael, Susan, Mallory, Mandy, Mary, Miles, and Benson; and great grandmother of 5 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother and sister, Frank and Virginia Gray. Hope was an excellent secretary and worked for numerous years at The Baptist Homes in Castle Shannon, PA. She started her career as a traffic controller for Pittsburgh’s first Television studio WDTV, which became KDKA. In her youth, Hope was an avid horsewoman and performed in rodeos and horse shows as a trick back rider on her horse Peanuts. An artistic person, she won a blue ribbon for an oil painting and several blue ribbons for quilts. She began quilting in 1981 and it became her passion. She has made quilts that have gone all over the world, many to missionary friends and mission projects. In her 35 years of quilting she made almost 900 quilts. Hope has always been an active member of the church wherever she has lived, working with pioneer girls, the youth groups, VBS, teaching Sunday School, and many activities within the church. She was also very active in ladies' bible study groups over the years. The Sherman family would like to thank the staff at McMurray Hills Manor and Three Rivers Hospice for the exceptional and loving care provided to their mother during her 5 months stay in their care.
