Sheryl Ann “Sherry” Mowatt, 69, of Bridgton, passed away peacefully surrounded by family Sunday, Sept., 3, 2017, at Maine Medical Center due to heart complications.

Sheryl was born Feb., 20, 1948 in Portland, daughter of Merlon and Shirley Bailey. Sheryl was a graduate of Portland High School in 1966, and began working at Fairchild’s/National Semi-Conductor until marrying Arthur Wesley Mowatt III, after which she then moved to Bridgton to begin her life as a loving wife and mother. Sheryl spent her life as a homemaker and day care provider for many young individuals.

Sheryl enjoyed attending Lake Region High School basketball games, rarely missing a game whether at home or away. She spent her time reading, crocheting, baking her infamous chocolate chip cookies, frequenting craft fairs, spending the summer swimming at Woods Pond, and spending time with her family. Sheryl looked forward to the Christmas season, setting up her snowmen and displaying her ceramic figures. Sheryl always had a soft spot for the neighborhood cat “Tigger,” and loved sharing his company.

Sheryl is survived by her husband of 41 years, Arthur Mowatt III; sons Jason and Jamie Mowatt of Bridgton; daughter and son-in-law Shari and Thomas Smith of Denmark; brother Robert Bailey of Waterbury, Vt.; grandchildren Cody Smith of Norway, Piper Shulack of Fla., and Landon Mowatt of Limington; as well as many nieces and nephews.
