On Sunday July 12, 2020, Sherri "Shug" Renee Adderley transitioned into eternal life. She was born August 2, 1969 in Washington D.C. to the late, William L. Davis (deceased in 2003) and Beverly A. Davis.

Sherri graduated from Thomas Stone High School in Waldorf, MD in 1987, after which she attended Norfolk State University where she graduated Cum Laude in 1991. She attended the University of Delaware (1991-1992) seeking a Master of Arts Studies, Political Science/Public Administration as well as the University of Maryland College Park (1993-1994) seeking the Master of Arts Studies, in Organizational Theory. She was a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

In 1992, Sherri met Alexander Adderley and fell in love. They were married on June 19, 1999. Through this union, Sherri was blessed with becoming a mother figure to Deion Harris.

Sherri was a devoted Christian. She would frequently visit Union Bethel A.M.E. Church in Brandywine, MD, with her mother, and Mt. Ennon Baptist Church in Clinton, MD.

Sherri started her Federal work service as a student career intern at the Naval Research Lab. She later worked at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency for twenty-one years. Upon leaving the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency she worked for the State of Maryland Highway Administration for four years. Looking for a new challenge, Sherri started working for the District of Columbia Government as a Budget and Operations Specialist in the Office of Innovation and Systems Improvement for District of Columbia Public Schools.

Sherri wasn't the life of the party, "she was the party." Any space was filled with joy the minute she entered with her infectious smile. She loved to shop and her sense of style was legendary.

Sherri had a strong personality, as well as, a good caring, loving heart. She enjoyed baking, cooking, the "one-armed bandit" and hanging with her friends. Even though she would complain, cooking at mom's house for family functions she would have it no other way. She loved to make macaroni and cheese, seafood salad, and the drunken rum cake. She enjoyed playing cards, reading and listening to reggae music. Sherri was very competitive┬ůshe loved to win no matter what it was!

Sherri is survived by her husband Alexander, son Deion, three grandkids Diondra Robertson, Isiah Harris, and Drew Harris; mother Beverly A. Davis, brother William L. Davis II (Kasia), sisters Patria Bailey (Martin), and Janice Mercer; loving mother-in-law Geneva Adderley, sister-in-laws Geraldine Watts (Kevin), Ophelia Adderley, Keshia Foxx and brother-in-law Jerome Adderley; aunts Theresa Jackson, Evelyn Gutrick (Lawrence), and Janice Grady, uncles Burnie K.
