Sheri Lea Talley

LANCASTER—Sheri Lea Talley, 62, of Lancaster passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 14, 2021.

Sheri loved music, going to concerts, animals, and her children and grandchildren. She especially enjoyed the beach and her favorite place, Topsail Island, N.C.

She was a vivacious “wild child” and her best life achievements were being a mother and grandmother. She dedicated her most recent years to caring for others, caring for animals, traveling and completing her “bucket list.”

Sheri was preceded in death by an infant son, John David Connelly; and her beloved father, Richard “Papa Sam” Sammons.

Sheri is survived by daughters, Shannon Talley and Kristen Connelly; son, Richard Connelly; mother, Geraldine Ann Sammons; sisters, Susan Wilson, Lisa Brooks, Linda Sommerville, Vickie Pinson and Robin Campbell; grandchildren, Julian Hopkins and Aedan Hopkins; and many beloved nieces, nephews and friends.

If desired, a contribution to Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Topsail Island may be made in Sheri’s name to honor her memory.

A celebration of life will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, September 29, at Faulkner Funeral Homes, Bristow-Faulkner Chapel, Saluda.
