Sheryll Ann Gilbertson

February 23, 1961 — December 15, 2022



While at home, and in the loving care of her husband and son, Sheryll Ann Gilbertson, the most beloved wife and the love of Alan Gilbertson's life, age 61, passed away on December 15, 2022 at 4:30am after a long battle with ovarian cancer. She is now at peace with God and is looking down and smiling upon us. Sheryll was born on February 23, 1961 to Richard and Evelyn Inman. As one of three siblings, Sheryll enjoyed a young life filled with creativity, love, and laughter. After graduating from Greenfield High School in 1979, Sheryll went on to have three children. She worked hard to provide for her family as a dedicated pharmacy technician for more than 40 years, working in both supervisory and technical positions, while still managing to foster loving and nurturing relationships with each of her children. As a mom, Sheryll did her best to encourage independence while still teaching safety. This meant that if her daughters wanted to ride their bikes to Pizza Hut, she would allow it even if she had to utilize her stealth to observe them from a safe distance. 

In heaven Sheryll will continue to love her husband Alan Gilbertson (Wausau, Wi), Daughters Jenifer Markos (Grafton, Wi), Stephanie Markos (Greendale, Wi) and son Benjamin Markos (Bedford, Tx), brother Steve Inman (Muskego, Wi) and sister Lisa Inman (Waukesha, Wi). Sheryll also enjoyed life with Jenifer's children Logan and Elizabeth and Stephanie's children Kayla and Evelyn. Sheryll also has two stepchildren. Stepdaughter Amy Gilbertson and children from Merton, Wi and Stepson Alan Gilbertson Jr and children from Waukesha, Wi.

Sheryll was the kindest, purest soul. She would give you the shirt off her back, and even if she really couldn't do that, Sheryll would find a way. She used her positive perspective to reach many individuals within her lifetime. Sheryll would provide comfort, safety, advice, love, and even just an ear if that's what was needed. Even when faced with adversity, Sheryll led with love, and taught patience, acceptance, and that everyone's perspective was important. She demonstrated her strength and love until her very last moment for her four grandchildren. Sheryll's very presence was such a comfort that the added bonus of her distinct laugh could brighten even the cloudiest day. She fought hard and is incredibly deserving of her eternal peace. Sheryll Ann Gilbertson will be missed by absolutely everyone she encountered in life. A Private Funeral Services will be held at Brainard Funeral Home 522 Adam St. Wausau, Wi 54403
