Sherri O'Bert - Class Of 1962

Sherri O'Bert

Sadly, my sister Sherry passed away on August 25, 2018, from lung and bone cancer. She fought vigorously, but the cancer won. She will be missed both as a dear friend and sister. Our dad, Lieutenant Colonel John James O'Bert, USAF, was stationed a second tour in Paris, France in 1962, affiliated with NATO. He was killed in an auto accident in 1964 returning from Fontainebleau with my mother. Though thrown from the car, she survived the accident and was transferred to a military hospital in Wiesbaden, Germany. The military unceremoniously packed up our household and sent us (ages 17, 16 and 13) home to Maryland. Sherry, at 19, was there to care for us. There were many advantages of being a military "brat" and one of those was the closeness which grew between us siblings.   Linda O'Bert Kidd
