Sherry Lynn Martinez

October 22, 1947 ~ October 13, 2020 (age 72)


Sherry Lynn Martinez, 72, of Louisville, Kentucky passed peacefully at 10:10 am on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 in her home, surrounded by loved ones and her beloved fur babies.

Sherry was born in Jefferson County, KY on October 22, 1947, to the late Ruth L. Kallembach. In addition to her mother, Sherry was preceded in death by her stepfather, Clifford L. Kallembach; brother, Terry K. Martinez; stepbrothers, Michael Kallembach and Kenton R. Kallembach; nephews, Terry K. Martinez Jr and Michael M. Martinez Jr. 

Left to cherish her memories include her brothers, Michael M. Martinez (Candice) of Tennessee, Mark L. Kallembach (Vicki) of Louisville; sisters, Phyllis Gentry (Doug) of Indiana and Tina Renee Frith (Larry) of Louisville.  Sherry will also be missed by her 11 nieces and nephews as well as her loving fur babies, Bentley, Siva Anna, Jack, Sampson, Sherman, Jasmine and her 4 white doves. 

Sherry was a dedicated Louisville Cardinals Fan and you would often see her sporting something red and she enjoyed attending basketball games with her closest friends.  She found companionship through her beloved pets who could always be found at her side or following her around like the “piped piper” (as she often said).

Sherry’s most favorite pastime was spending time with her family and friends.  She especially enjoyed talking with people she loved and sharing funny stories about her crazy life and family. She made an everlasting impression on everyone she met.  Whether you knew Sherry for 5 minutes or 25 years, she had a way to make you laugh and see the positive in life. 

Sherry was a force to be reckoned with and she was a fighter. However, she always found a way to find the good in every person and find the fun in every moment.  

A private Celebration of Life Ceremony will be held at her home on Saturday, October 24, 2020.

Please leave a special memory or funny story about Sherry for the family on the "Tribute Wall" above.
