Sherry is the sister of Eleanor B. Daniels and lives in Richmond, Vermont, with her husband, Ted Yeates, and son, Doug. Ellie's two children, Carrie and Justin Braman, are part of her extended family. Sherry is a breast and ovarian cancer survivor. In 2004, Sherry was honored with "Survivor of the Year" for the VT/NH Susan G. Komen Association Race for the Cure. Sherry recently retired from her position of conference manager for JLC LIVE, a residential construction show owned by Hanley Wood Exhibitions in Williston, Vermont, where she worked for 14 years. Sherry owns and maintains the notecard company, Quadri, that was established by Eleanor to promote her work. For many years from 1978 to mid-90's Sherry was the General Manager and President of Twin Oaks Sports & Fitness in South Burlington, Vermont.
Sherry was with Ellie when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1985. She and her husband supported Ellie through her four year journey with the disease, which was a true learning process. It was ironic for Sherry to be diagnosed with the same disease in 2000. Having been both a supporter and survivor, Sherry was eager to support the mission of promoting education and research about gynecologic malignancies and women's health issues through the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at The UVM Medical Center. The whole Daniels Family, including Ellie's two children, are pleased to support the Fund by lending Eleanor's name and legacy to the mission.
