Sherran Elizabeth Reif, 68, of Pinehurst, North Carolina, was welcomed into the healing arms of her Savior Jesus Christ on May 23rd, 2018, while surrounded by her loved ones.

Sherran was born June 29th, 1949 in Washington, D.C. to Elizabeth Morton Hyde and Calvin John Gingrich. She married her husband, Mark Randall Reif, in April of 1973, after which they began raising their family together.
