Obituary

Sherri L. Vasquez, 56, passed away in Westminster, Colorado on April 25, 2019. A Colorado native and life-long student, in and out of the classroom, she received a BA in Journalism from the University of Colorado and master’s degrees in Marketing and Communications from the University of Denver. Her successful career as a journalist included nearly a decade at the Rocky Mountain News in Denver as a reporter, editor and columnist, as well as writing and editing for the Coloradoan in Fort Collins and La Voz Hispana de Colorado. Sherri’s journalistic talents were showcased, along with her magnetic personality, intelligence, and poise as the Host and Producer of the nationally syndicated TV program Latin View on PBS.

Sherri was devoted to the Hispanic community, serving as a board member on the Latin American Education Foundation, VP of Marketing for the Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and an active supporter of the GI Forum. She was the recipient of many prestigious awards for her contributions to print and television media and to the community. Most recently, Sherri began a new venture, Strategic Tarot, bringing joy and light to countless people through her unique and positive Tarot Readings and Classes.

Sherri’s love of life, stunning beauty, grace, kindness, humor, selfless commitment to the community and profound love and dedication to her husband, family and vast circle of friends will be missed immensely. Sherri is survived by her husband, Salvador Gomez; mother, Shay Cook; brother, Kenny Vasquez, and many extended family members. Sherri was preceded in death by her father, Simon R. Vasquez.

A Celebration of Life will be held June 1, 2019 from 2:00-5:00 pm at the University Club of Denver, 1675 Sherman Street, Denver, Colorado 80203. Full Details at www.aspenmortuaries.com

I was so shocked and sad to hear of Sherri's passing. What a loss to the Denver community and of course to hear close family and friends. Sadly, I need to work on the day of her memorial but want you all to know that I am keeping you all in my heart at this sad time. Sal, may the angels camp around you and send you some comfort during this time. My heart is with you. Blessings, Beth
