Deanna Dee Sherman, 79, passed away peacefully at her home near Dexter, Minnesota on March 4, 2017.  She was born on November 29, 1938 to Lawrence and Ruth (Eblen) Edwards in Austin, Minnesota.  She was raised near Austin and graduated from Austin High School in 1956.  Deanna was united in marriage to William G. “Bill” Sherman on April 19, 1958 at St. Augustine Catholic Church. Deanna was an avid bird watcher, gardener, and shared a love for animals – especially her miniature pinscher, Charlie.  She was an exceptional cook and baker.  Throughout the years, she shared her talent of cooking while working at the Windmill Restaurant near Dexter and the Grand Meadow Nursing Home.  On routine visits to Mayo Clinic’s hematology division, Deanna always welcomed the staff and doctors with a double batch of peanut butter cookies.

She is survived by her husband Bill Sherman of rural Dexter, Minnesota; five children, Jeffrey (Vanette) Sherman of Jim Falls, Wisconsin; James (Janice) Sherman of Oologah, Oklahoma; Mary Sherman-Ahrens of Blooming Prairie, Minnesota; Robert (Ruth) Sherman of Blooming Prairie, Minnesota; Matthew (Holly) Sherman of Sargeant, Minnesota; 14 grandchildren; 10 great grandchildren; brothers, David Edwards of California; Garry (Connie) Edwards of Houston, Minnesota; Garth (Shelly) Edwards of Houston, Minnesota; Garret Edwards; sisters, Kathy Eason of California; Jennifer Edwards Hess; sister-in-law, Beth Edwards, all of Dayton, Minnesota; many nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Robert (Bob) Edwards, sister Barbara Logan, brother Grant Edwards and son-in-law Dean Ahrens.   

A private service will be held at a later date.  Memorial donations may go to Hormel Institute Cancer Research.  Worlein Funeral Home of Austin is in charge of arrangements.
