She was born Oct. 31, 1927, in Conneaut, Ohio, the daughter of John and Frances Castle Rankin Loomis. Mrs. Sherman graduated from Conneaut High School in 1946. She attended Muskingum College in 1946 as a voice major and transferred in 1949 to Western Reserve University, earning her BA degree while working part-time jobs to complete her undergraduate education. Due to the illness of her then husband, Jack Heil, and her son, Brian, Mrs. Sherman furthered her education at Edinboro State Teachers College to become a teacher in order to support her family. She obtained her Masters in Education degree in 1965. Mrs. Sherman taught first and second grades in the Buckeye Local School District, retiring from the Buckeye system in 1994 after 30 years of service. During her career, she was recognized as teacher of the year. Besides teaching, Mrs. Sherman’s other love was music and sharing her vocal talents with her church and community. She began singing in the church of her late grandfather, The Reverend James Henry Rankin, who served for 35 years in the Congregational Church in Conneaut, the longest pastorate of any Congregational minister in one community in Ohio. She later became an active member and frequent soloist of her church choir of the First United Methodist Church. She is fondly remembered for her performances in community musical productions sponsored by the MacDowell Music Club, the Conneaut Rotary Club, the Conneaut Jaycees, and the Conneaut Community Center, most particularly the roles of: Mrs. Higgins in My Fair Lady; Lady Thiang in The King and I; Ellen in Oklahoma!; Bloody Mary in South Pacific; Eulalie MacKecknie Shinn in The Music Man; The Mother Abbess in The Sound of Music; Nettie Fowler in Carousel; General Matilda B. Cartwright in Guys and Dolls; Mrs. Brown and the Duchess in Alice Goes to Wonderland; and Gertrude in Hansel and Gretel. She also performed as part of the Singing Ensemble in Kiss Me Kate and as soloist and ensemble member in The Messiah and holiday productions of the MacDowell Music Club, the Conneaut Community Center, and the First United Methodist Church. One of Mrs. Sherman’s lifetime interests was genealogy. She was a member of the Ashtabula County Genealogical Society, the Ohio Genealogical Society, First Families of Ohio, and the Magna Charta Dames. She pursued studying and recreating her own family’s history, tracing ties back to Captain M. E. Lucas, an Ohio River steam boat captain, who assisted his father in establishing the first Methodist Society in Ohio. During her lifetime, Mrs. Sherman enjoyed traveling, particularly to visit her brother, James, in Switzerland, and her son and family in California. She made several ventures with her brother, James, sister, Mary, and retired teacher friends to the Holy Land, England and throughout Europe. Mrs. Sherman’s other memberships included the NEA, OEA, ACRT, ORTA, SAI, and Daughters of American Revolution. Mrs. Sherman was a current Trustee of the Conneaut Education Foundation, assisting in the selection of recipients for educational scholarships. Mrs. Sherman is survived by her son, Brian L. Sherman, of Ventura, Calif.; her daughter-in-law, Meredith Sherman, of California; her granddaughters, Amber Sherman, Alyssa Sherman and Amy Sherman, all of California; her great-granddaughter, Rylie Noelle Brooks, of California; her cousin, Robert Loomis, of New York; and several other distant cousins. She is also survived by many close friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Mary Estelle Loomis; and her brother, James Rankin Loomis.
