Sherron Ann Westerfield, a remarkable woman who touched the lives of many, passed away on January 21, 2024, at 82. She was born on April 1, 1942, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and was the daughter of the late William and Jimmie  Martin Westerfield.

She volunteered at the Harrodsburg Historical Society, a member of MENSA, and a contributing writer for the Advocate Messenger.
Along with her parents, she was predeceased by her son Richard Maxwell Stepp, her brothers James Sheridan Westerfield, William Hankla Westerfield, and Brent Martin Westerfield
Sherron is survived by her loving brother, Logan (Nancy) Westerfield, who was her rock and constant companion throughout their lives, several nieces and nephews, and many good friends.
