Sherry A. Wells, age 74, of Austin, Minnesota, passed away on Sunday, August 15, 2021, at St. Mark’s Independent Living in Austin. Sherry Ann Baxter was born to Gaylord and Constance (Brooks) Baxter on May 11, 1947, in Austin, Minnesota. She attended Austin High School.

After her kids got older, Sherry went on to continue her education at Riverland Community College for computer science.

Sherry was a faithful servant of God and spreading the word of Jesus was very important to her. Because of God’s grace, she was a 17-year cancer survivor.
