    Married for 59 years to the late George H. Lenz, Jr., Sherry made a home in Elkridge, Maryland, and later in Sykesville, Maryland, where she raised their four children.

They later resided in Norfolk, Virginia, then Sherry recently moved to Davidsonville, Maryland.

She is survived by her daughters, Sharon Clune Lenz Irwin and her husband Dick of Marco Island, FL, Lauren Leigh Lenz Conner and her husband Nick, of Norfolk, Virginia, and Sarah Elsa Lenz Lock and her husband Howard of Davidsonville, Maryland, and her daughter-in-law, Judy Lenz Marcogliese. Affectionately called "Gaga," Mrs. Lenz is survived by five grandchildren: Susan Irwin Levin, Rebecca Irwin Savino, Andrew Lenz Conner, Isabelle Lenz Lock, Emily Lenz Lock, and four great grandchildren: Brian Levin, Thomas Savino, Jack Levin and Lucy Savino.
