WENDELL – Sheryl Ann Boykin Williams, 70, peacefully departed this life on Sunday after an extremely brave 5 year battle with breast cancer, leaving behind broken and mourning hearts of those that loved her dearly. She was born in Portsmouth, VA to the late Walter Carson & Mildred Bunn Boykin. Sheryl was a dedicated employee of First Citizens where she wore many hats, and her skillset led to her performing many duties there during her tenure. When time allotted, her joys were traveling, crafting, and eating seafood but neither compared to the joy she experienced when being at the beach and out on the ocean. Sheryl had an undying love for her family, especially her precious grandbabies. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother and grandmother and will be missed beyond measure.

Sheryl is survived by the love of her life of nearly 50 years, Danny Williams; her daughter, Lauren Egan (Ryan); her grandchildren, Lucas Egan and Liam Egan; and her brother, Larry Boykin (Sue).

Flowers are welcome or memorial contributions may be made to Transitions LifeCare, 250 Hospice Circle, Raleigh NC.

Memorial service will be at 3:00pm on Thursday, April 4, 2024 in the Strickland Funeral Home & Crematory Chapel, with a memorial visitation from 1:30pm to 3:00pm prior to service.

Arrangements are with Strickland Funeral Home & Crematory, 211 W. Third St., Wendell.
