Sherry Lorraine Ferrell Bernhard

Feb. 17, 1944 – Oct. 09, 2019

NATCHEZ— Sherry Bernhard,75, of Baton Rouge, danced her way into heaven on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2019.
Mrs. Bernhard was born Feb. 17, 1944, in Natchez, the daughter of William T. “Billy” Ferrell and Hazel Lorraine Hampton Ferrell.  
From the beginning, her goal was to keep her law enforcement father and the small Mississippi town on its toes! She has been a resident of Baton Rouge for the last 50 years.  Her vivacious, tenacious and sometimes rebellious personality is what kept her spunky through life’s ups and downs!
She was married to the love her life, Edward “EB” Bernhard for 30 years.
She was preceded in death by her father, Billy Ferrell and sister-in law, Carole Anne Ferrell.
Survivors include her husband, EB; mother, Hazel Ferrell; daughter, Candi Ogden Ferachi and husband, Paul Ferachi, of Baton Rouge; son Tobi Ogden and Christy Ogden, the mother of his children, of Nashville, Tennessee; grandchildren Christopher Ferachi, Cameron Ferachi, Kennedy Ferachi, Keegan Ferachi, Carter Ferachi, Camille Ferachi, all of Baton Rouge, Jakob Ogden, Juliana Ogden and Ethan Ogden all of Nashville; and one brother, William “Tommy” Ferrell.
She is also survived by her sweet kitty, B2.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge.
Arrangements are under the directions of Laird Funeral Home.
There will be no visitation, but the family appreciates all prayers of peace and comfort during this time of loss.
