Sherren Oleta Goins Meredith, daughter of the late George T. Goins and Dorothy C. Waters, was born July 3, 1940, in Washington, DC.
A Life Well Spent...
Sherren was a proud native of Washington DC. She was an only child, born and raised in Washington, DC, where she attended DC Public Schools. She was a dedicated mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was a wonderful example of faith, hope, and charity.
She was a loyal and devoted employee as she held numerous positions in the District. She was a dedicated, devoted, diligent, and industrious worker with a superb work ethic.
Sherren loved all types of music and she loved to laugh, sing and dance. She was never without a bag of candy. She had a compassionate spirit. She was always ready to lend a helping hand to family and friends. Just like our heavenly father, all you had to do was ask and Sherren was there. All those who knew her have been touched by her kindness and generosity.
She never complained, but she stood up for what she believed in. She was a proud young lady, she stood tall even when she was not feeling it. She always had a smile on her face, even when the times were rough. She was not afraid of anything or anyone. No one was a stranger to her. She knew GOD was in control. When we take inventory over her life/look back over her life, we can see all the rocks, hills, the mountains and the valleys that GOD has brought her thru, thank GOD she never gave up.
She is resting with her mother Dorothy, her father George, her son Joseph, and her grandson Derrell. She did her best, she made it and now she is looking over her love ones to guide them as they guide themselves.
