    Sherrie passed away peacefully, on January 5, 2022. She was born in Salt Lake City to Marvin and Dorothy Wallin July 21, 1949. She was 72 years young. Sherrie graduated from Olympus High School in 1967 and attended BYU, USU, and U of U. She met and married Paul Kasteler in the Salt Lake Temple after a torrid 23-day engagement on June 29, 1970. They are the proud parents of 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls. Her life was cut short from the effects of a devastating and very rare brain disease – Primary Progressive Aphasia – which eats away essential speech and comprehension abilities and motor skills, such as reflexes, until she was unable to swallow and take nourishment. Hopefully, some day there will be enough science available to figure out how to combat this wicked disease.

    Sherrie was a stalwart lady. An active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, she fulfilled, honorably, just about every calling available to women in the church. Sherrie worked as secretary and manager in her husband’s CPA practice for 25 years. Together with her husband she served a full-time mission to the saints in the islands of Fiji. An avid quilter, she was active in the leadership of the Utah Quilt Guild for many years. Sherrie loved the musical group the Mamas and the Papas so much so that when Utah finally allowed 7 characters on a personalized license plate she chose “MAMAKAS”. She subscribed to the work ethic – “first we work and then we work”.

    Sherrie is survived by her husband, Paul, and three children: a daughter Heidi (Swapp), a son Cameron and a daughter Katie (Hymas), 11 grandchildren and 7 brothers and sisters. She is preceded in death by her parents, a son, Quinn and a grandson Cory (Swapp). We express gratitude to the nurses and staff of the Pheasant Run special care facility for their diligence and constant care and monitoring of her condition. We cannot thank them enough.

    Funeral services will be held Thursday, January 13, 2022 at the North Shore 4th ward chapel. (4842 W Vermillion Dr., South Jordan, Utah). A viewing will be held on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 from 7 until 9 o’clock pm at the same chapel. Interment will be at the Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery, 1950 E 10600 So, Sandy, Utah.

    I feel like I have gotten to know you through your daughter's posts on social media ( Heidi Swapp). If you could read this now I would hope that you could feel the love for you! I hope your family finds peace in all the special memories that were documented by you through the years and that special skill that you passed to your daughter. PS. Your husband is still sweetly holding your hand.
