“Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.” John 16:22
On Sunday, December 11, 2022 our most precious mother, daughter, sister and friend, Sherry Leigh Cable, opened her eyes in the presence of her Heavenly father, her beloved Dad and Mom in her forever home in glory at the age of 55.Sherry was born in Elizabethton, Tenn., but was raised in the Elk Mills Community of Butler by her loving parents, Carl Allen Cable and Gracie Mae (Potter) Cable. She had mourned their loss tremendously.
Sherry was so much more than a mother, she was a friend, a confidant, and the rock of her family. She was the go-to for a pep talk, a cheerleader for achievements and the voice of reason in the midst of pain or troubles. Though she herself went through so much pain but emotionally and physically, Sherry always found time for what really mattered the most, family and family was her friends as well. She believed that everyone should be treated with kindness and respect which is exactly what she did.
Sherry was a graduate of Hampton High School and was retired from the Internal Revenue Service. She was of the Baptist faith and had attended Sunset Freewill Baptist Church.
Those left to cherish her memory is her devoted and loving daughter, Brittany Cable, of the home; her beloved brother, Terry Cable, also of the home; her aunts, who were more like sisters, Mary Potter Estep (Howard), Linda Potter, Betty Potter Hill (Daniel), and a very special aunt and best friend, Gayle Potter Ashley, all of Elizabethton; an uncle, Opal Cable of Butler; her bonus sister, Kristi Crow Smith; her special friend and godmother to Brittany, Patsy Crow; her special friends, Lisa Morrow, Missy Andrews Ward, Debbie Treadway, Angie Odom, Lori Church and Melissa Scalf.

The family will receive friends in the funeral home chapel from 11 a.m. until 12 p.m. Saturday, prior to the service.
