Sherry Kay Sauer

SauerSherry Kay Sauer passed away on September 19, 2015. She was born January 4, 1962 in Raleigh, North Carolina to George Earl and Edna Christine Dickens. She was preceded in death by her father George Earl Dickens. Sherry is survived by her loving husband of 22 years, David Sauer; her son Alexander Kempen; her mother, Edna Christine Morgan; her sisters, Terry Longoria (Omero Longoria her husband), Christie Holman (Dave Holman her husband), and Brandy Morgan; her two grandchildren Matthew and Kaitlyn Kempen; her nieces Madison Longoria, Taylor Holman, Haley Winson, and Reese Winson; her nephew Jayce Winson.
Sherry graduated from the very prestigious nursing program at Weber State College in Utah in 1987 and gained an LPN license in Utah. At the end of 1987 she moved to Texas where she gained her LVN license and went on to practice nursing for a number of years. She was married to David Sauer on May 29, 1993 at St. Michael Catholic Church by the Reverend Thomas Rafferty. They nurtured each other’s dreams in marriage and shared most activities and time together. She completely devoted her life to her husband and her son Alex and then her grandchildren.
In 2002 she went on to earn a BA majoring in History at the University of Houston, Clear Lake. She worked for CPS for the State of Texas and was also a substitute teacher for some time and supported her son in all ways to earn his BS in Aviation and was so proud of him.
She loved traveling to different countries and parts of the United States. She especially enjoyed sailing on different cruise lines to exotic locations including Alaska and the Panama Canal. She also loved photography, reading, history, cooking, decorating, hosting parties and holidays along with her sisters, and had a very humble and devout faith through prayer.
Her happiness and laughter were part of her beautiful aura that everyone could see. Her spirit was always kind, charitable, loving, humble and devoted. Most recently the most precious gift from her son – her grandchildren Matthew and Kaitlyn – gave her joy and she was blessed to have them nearby as they grew.
The Family will receive friends on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at 6:00pm with a Rosary at 7 o’clock at Crowder Funeral Home, 1645 East Main, League City, Texas 77573. A Funeral Mass will follow on Thursday at 10am at St. Mary Catholic Church, 1612 East Walker, League City, Texas with Father Howard Drabek officiating. Interment will take place at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Dickinson, Texas.


  1. My heartfelt sympathy to the Sauer family. May the God of all comfort supply you with strength and love in the days ahead as you cope with your loss. (2 Corinthians 1:2-4)

  2. There are no words at a moment like this. I have the fondest memories of Sherry and her 3 sisters. There are many things to this day that I do that were influenced by Sherry that she would have never known…She will be missed…

  4. Mom,

    Thank you for giving me a wonderful life. I promise I’ll live the rest of my life according to how you raised me. I promise I will raise Matthew and Kaitlyn the same way. We will carry on your legacy. I wish you would have stayed with me longer, but I can’t express enough gratitude for the wonderful thirty years you were with me. I couldn’t have asked for a better mother. My heart hurts more than you could know. Please continue to give me your nurturing love and guidance. I’ll be flying with you high in the sky. I love you and I’ll see you soon.


  5. David and family you have my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of Sherry. I regret that I was unable to attend any of the events and give you this message in person. The loss of a spouse is a bridge that I have not crossed I can only imagine how that feels. May your faith and your memories of Sherry help you through the following days. Time will heal this loss,

    best wishes for the future to all,

  6. Bless you for your condolences. I don’t know why this happened only God knows and would give my own life for her to return. I’ve lost so many friends and family in recent years but could never imagine losing my wife. First I lost my beloved Henry and now my wife Sherry. I prayed and prayed and prayed she’d get well. We had so many plans with my son and our grandchildren but God took her from me anyway. Without my faith in God I wouldn’t have the will to live anymore without her. I know that she is still with me and there must be some plan God intended. For my wife I ask that all of you pray for the sick when you know someone is sick. Give to the poor when you can and always be charitable. Love one another as you would yourself as Jesus said.

    David Sauer
