Obituary for Sheri Starr Keen

Sheri-Starr-KeenSheri Lynne Starr Keen, 56, died on March 16, 2015, from Alzheimer’s disease. She was born Friday, June 13, 1958, at San Antonio, Texas, the daughter of Jon Larry Starr and Barbara Starr Roberts.

Sheri was a dedicated employee of Proctor and Gamble, Coty Cosmetics, L’Oreal Cosmetics, Computer Resources and the Howell Trumbo Company.

For many years Sheri volunteered at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter. She pursued her passion for animals by investigating and rescuing many abused dogs, cats and horses. Many of these animals were blessed to go home with her.

The family appreciates the loving care by her caregivers, Carin Stanberry Evans and Karen Keith, during her illness.

Sheri was predeceased by her sister, Lori Anne Starr, and her grandparents, James Paul and Colleen Harrell Byerly, and Fred and Florence Clark Starr.

She was survived by her son, Taylor, and his father, John Keen; her parents, of Fayetteville; her brother, Larry Starr, of Little Rock; and many loving family members and dear friends.

A celebration of life for Sheri was held at Central United Methodist Church in Fayetteville on March 20. The service was officiated by Dr. Reverend Steve Pulliam.

Memorials may be made to the Fayetteville Animal Shelter at 1640 South Armstrong Avenue, Fayetteville, AR 72701 or Arkansas Alzheimer’s Association 201 Markham Center Drive, Little Rock, Arkansas 72205-1409.
