Woolwich – Sherry M. (Robinson) Rice passed away into the arms of her Lord on May 22, 2020. She was born on May 26, 1938 to Roger and Marguerite Robinson. She attended Bath Schools, graduating from Morse High School in 1956. She and Sgt. Wilford E Rice (US Army) married on December 28 of that year and remained so until his death in 2011. She devoted herself as a homemaker for their three sons in many places such as Virginia, New York, Massachusetts, Germany and in their last residence of Woolwich. She was a very selfless person, always putting others first. Her warm smile always welcomed you. She had a great passion for all the dogs they had throughout the years. She was an accomplished pianist and accordion player. Sherry played piano for the North Woolwich Church for many years. Her favorite times were spent with her family and friends.
