CHARLOTTE — Ms. Willie Lee Sherman, 90, passed away peacefully into the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018.  Willie was born on April 1, 1927 to Willie Robert and Lizzie Knott Sherman.  A native of Person County, Willie moved to Charlotte after completing her studies at Miss Hardbarger’s Business College.  Her lifelong career as a legal secretary for Alvin London at Sanders, Walker & London law firm provided for great personal satisfaction.  Ms. Sherman is remembered as a natural caretaker, looking after her mother, her dearest friend Lena, and immediate neighbors.

Willie was a member of Sharon Baptist Church.  In addition to her parents, Willie was preceded in death by her brother and sister-in-law, Daniel Buck Sherman and Mattie Sue Sherman (nee Huff).  Willie is survived by loving neighbors, Meredith White, Millie McArdle, and Cathy Frey who would like to express their gratitude to the staff at Sunrise on Providence and Hospice & Palliative Care for their exceptional care and compassion given toward Willie.  She is also survived by numerous cousins extending across the Carolinas.

A graveside service will be held at Person Memorial Cemetery 1 p.m. Saturday, April 21, 2018 by the Rev. John Pritchard.
