It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the death of our colleague and dear friend Sherry Vaid.
Sherry joined the Finance Division as Chief Cashier in August 2010 after a varied career in both the private and public sector. Sherry was firm but fair, could be outspoken, but always professional and well respected within the Finance Division and across the wider School.
A larger than life personality, positive, fun, mischievous with an amazing smile. A social gathering was not complete without Sherry and whatever the occasion, it was sure to be a success when in her company.
Sherry had an ability to make people laugh, forge friendships and take the time to chat and listen, she also made the world’s best samosas and has left an indelible impact on those she met both professionally and on a personal level.
A huge Liverpool fan, Sherry was beaming and enjoying each moment of the team’s success in 2019/20.
The announcement of Sherry’s passing was a great shock for colleagues and for those of us who has the privilege to call her a friend.
Sherry’s family were always foremost in her mind and her number one priority, our hearts and prayers go out to Sherry’s husband Lovedeep, her two sons Saajan and Aman and her parents Parmjit and Jasbir. Her family have requested charitable donations are made to Breast Cancer/ NHS.
I’m so sad to read this, such a lovely person. Never saw her without a smile on her face. Condolences to her family, friends and colleagues.
Lovely tribute to Sherry, and what a beautiful page!
Tragic news, I only worked with her briefly but she was always friendly and helpful. Sending my love to her family, friends and those who worked with her xx
Sherry was larger than life, it’s hard to believe she has left us. I will remember her lovely melodic West Midlands accent. My sincere condolences to her loved ones.
Sherry and I used to get the train together (if she was going via Twickenham instead of Chiswick). We always had a good laugh about the world and life in general. She was always good company and I will miss her chit chat (3rd carriage, 0900 to Waterloo). Sending condolences to her family. Nicola
