ARCOâ€”Sherry May Barnhart Bingham has lost her long time battle with Multiple Sclerosis on Sunday, September 3, 2006, and has left this earth and those who loved her to be with her Father in Heaven.
Sherry was born April 12, 1951 at Thermopolis, Wyoming. She lived in Wyoming until she was four when she moved to Arco, Idaho. She attended school in Arco and was a member of the Baptist Church. Sherry married Dennis Beverland in 1968 and they had one son, James Beverland. She then married Thomas Bingham and had two sons, Thomas and Richard.
Sherry was a devoted mother and wife. She had an indominatable spirit and her home and children were forever foremost in her life. Sherry had a delightful sense of humor and brightened her surroundings with her smile and ready wisecracks. Some in Arco will remember her as a classmate, some a good neighbor and some as a high school substitute teacher. Others will remember her as a patient in the Lost River Living Center where she has spent the last 13 years of her life. She will be missed by all her friends and family.
She is survived by her father Dallas E. Barnhart, her step-mother Elva Barnhart, her mother, Edith A. Charlson and step-father Ben Charlson of Arco, three sons, James Beverland and wife Angie of Colorado Springs, Thomas Bingham and wife Sarah of Idaho Falls, Richard Bingham and wife Hayley of Boise, a brother James Barnhart and wife Teresa of Franktown, CO. and sister Bonnie McDaniel and husband Greg of Charleston, S.C. Sherry has two grandsons Nicholas and Tyler and one granddaughter, Katelyn May.
The family requests no flowers but donations can be made in her name to the National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, or The Lost Rivers Hospital or Living Center. Graveside services were held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, September 6, 2006 at Lost River Cemetery. A viewing was held Tuesday, September 5, 2006 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Bingham Marvel Memorial Chapel, 135 Lost River Ave., Arco.
Her family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to all care takers for their years of kindness and consideration to Sherry in her long illness.
