Sheryl Lou Bellamy, daughter of Lawrence "Pete" and Mary Lou (Bradfield) Schon, was born December 28, 1951 at the Joslin Hospital in Harper, Kansas.
She grew up and graduated from the Argonia High School. Following High School she attended Philips University receiving her bachelor's in Education with an emphasis in English and Library Science.

The family made their home near Freeport and Sheryl began a forty year career as a Language Arts Instructor and Librarian. Education was her true passion, and working with kids became her life. She felt that for all students, education was the key to success. True to her own personality, she developed a fun, unique and creative learning environment that encouraged students to trust their own opinions while fostering confidence to realize their full potential. One of the things Sheryl enjoyed the most was watching her students grow and live their lives, as she would stay in contact with many of them throughout the years. She cared for them as much as they did her.

Sheryl was baptized into the Zion Lutheran Church at a young age, and served on various Education committees and foundations throughout the years, past member of the Order of Eastern Star and was currently serving as president of the Lutheran Women's Ministerial League.
