Sherrie Lea Higgins 1957-2015

Sherrie Lea Higgins, 58, was welcomed into heaven by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Sunday, May 10, 2015, the Lord's day and nothing more fitting for Sherrie. She was born in Houston, Texas on April 29, 1957 to her parents James Robert (Bob) and Hilda (Pappy) Higgins. After graduating from Sharpstown High School, she worked as an administrative assistant or receptionist at various engineering companies and for many years she owned her own business. Most recently she was employed as a receptionist for Superior Energy Services, Inc. She was a long time, active member of Houston's First Baptist Church were she served on the Welcome Team and could be seen almost every Sunday with her beautiful smile greeting everyone. Sherrie was known as a wonderfully kind person, full of life with a brave upbeat outlook. Everyone was amazed at her strength, courage and faith. She made a difference in many lives. All were blessed by her friendship, her ministry, and her outgoing personality. For the past four years she valiantly fought her battle against cancer while always being concerned about others. She was truly a blessing in our lives and will forever be an inspiration to all who knew her. The family would like to offer special thanks to Superior Energy, Inc., Oilfield Helping Hands, Dr. Muffaddal Morkas, and her "Army of Angels" (prayer warriors) for their constant support. She is preceded in death by her father, James Robert Higgins. She is survived by her mother, Hilda (Pappy) Higgins, her sisters, Susan Higgins, Jill Stephens (Bill), Jan Higgins, Renee Fenn (Scott), her brother, Bob Higgins (Susie), her nieces and nephews, Bobby Higgins, Mark Higgins, Erin York, Kevin Stephens, Allison Lee, Haley Fenn, Blake Fenn and great-niece and nephews, and her constant companion Tootie (her dog). A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at noon at Houston's First Baptist Church, 7401 Katy Freeway, Houston, Texas. A reception will immediately follow the service. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made in memory of Sherrie to Citizens For Animal Protection (CAPS), Susan G. Komen Foundation or a charity of your choice .
