Jeanette Marie  Sherman  (Cameron)
ISLAND FALLS - Jeanette Marie (Cameron) Sherman, 81, passed away on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at her home in Island Falls, ME, after a long battle with Parkinson's disease. Jeanette fell asleep in the Lord with her beloved family and friends around her. Jeanette was born Jeanette Marie Cameron on January 28, 1939 in Island Falls, Maine. Jeanette was the oldest of four children born to Earl and Gladys (White) Cameron of Crystal, Maine.

Jeanette graduated from Island Falls High School in 1957, and attended the Eastern Maine General Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1960, as an RN. Later, Jeanette would earn her Master's Degree in Public Health from Loma Linda University in Riverside, CA. Her career included nursing roles at Aroostook General, Madigan Memorial and Houlton Regional Hospitals and supervising the Rest Haven Nursing Home. She spent 20 years in Public Health Nursing where she ended her career when she retired at the age of 70 as Regional Supervisor. She met and eventually married the love of her life, Robert Dean Sherman, on Saturday evening, November 12, 1960 at the Oakfield Baptist Church. Jeanette and Bob had one biological daughter, Deborah and unofficially adopted Paula, Terry and Albert.

Jeanette enjoyed reading, learning and spending quality time with her extended family, especially her church family and grandchildren. She was an important and influential leader in her church for many years. She taught Sabbath school classes for juniors, served as pianist and was instrumental in shaping the lives and faith of many children who passed through her classes.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Gladys Cameron, her brother, Earl (Buddy) Cameron, her father and mother-in-law, Ralph and Mae Sherman, by brothers-in-law, Bill Sherman, Carl Sherman, Phil Sherman and Brian Wing.
