Obituary of Julia Debra Sherman
Julia Debra “Debbie” Sherman, 64, Big Ridge Road, Glenville, NC passed away on Sunday, April 28, 2019 from complications of congestive heart failure. She was the eldest child of the late George Shook, Sr. and Betty Jo Hooper.
Debbie graduated from Glenville School. Her legacy will be helping others with kind words and deeds. She worked full time until she suffered a massive heart attack in April 2018.
