Sherrie L. (Martin) Dean, age 77 of Massillon, passed away on Thursday, August 20, 2020 after living valiantly for 19 years with Parkinson's disease, then dementia. She was born in Canton on May 15, 1943 to the late James and Dorothy Martin. Sherrie was employed by Southeastern Salon Suppliers, where she was very a successful saleswoman; she would drive endlessly selling supplies all through her territory, which lead her to become a leader in sales for the company and retiring after thirteen years in 2005. Although Sherrie was very proud of her career, her family was what she loved and adored the most.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her daughter Kristin DiPaulo; brothers Frank, Chuck, and James “Gigi” Martin; and sister Betty. Sherrie was survived by her loving husband of twenty-five years, Scot Dean; children Edward (Walter) Meeks of Florida, Andre` (Jeff) DeMatteis of North Carolina, and Tracy (Ernie) Wanner also of North Carolina. Also survived by stepchildren Bill, John, and Mike; twelve grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and brothers Matthew and Rick.
