Obituary for Sharon "Sherry" Arnold Danner

Wives, moms, grandmothers, aunts, nieces, cousins and friends are special, and this was no exception! Sharon (Sherry) Arnold Danner, age 71, formerly of Northford and Wallingford, Connecticut, passed away Monday October 1, 2018 in her new home in Hillsborough, North Carolina.

Sherry was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut on September 24, 1947 and grew up in Stratford, Connecticut. She is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Frederick (Fred) Danner; her four children, Scott Danner (Nicole), Adam Danner (Lauren), Craig Danner (Jessica), and Hope Rapini (Michael); her six grandchildren, Torre, Faith, Jacob, Nathan, Hunter and Blake; her sister Judy Hill and her brother Bruce Arnold (Carol); and many other family members and friends who provided love and support throughout the years.

In 1967, Sherry received her nursing certificate from Bridgeport Hospital School of Nursing. She proudly worked as a registered nurse at Yale New Haven Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for 37 years, retiring in 2013. Sherry treasured the lifelong friendships formed with her colleagues at the hospital. She also found great joy in hearing about former patients as they grew up throughout the years.

Sherry was an avid reader and enjoyed going on cruises with her husband, family and friends having visited most of the islands in the Caribbean. She loved her pets and maintained a constant mix of dogs and cats in her home throughout her life.

Sherry was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in late June 2018. She remained stoic in the face of this difficult diagnosis, often comforting those around her rather than being comforted.

A memorial service for Sherry will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at the First Congregational Church of Wallingford, 23 South Main Street, Wallingford, Connecticut. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation in Sherry’s honor at
