Sheryle Lynn (Lafferty) Rowland, age 62, of Belding, passed away at Corewell Health, Butterworth Hospital on January 5, 2024, surrounded by her loving family, following a brief illness, under hospice care. She was born on May 2, 1961, in Carson City, daughter of Calvin and Patsy (Jeffery) Lafferty. Sheryle graduated from Belding High School with the Class of 1979 and continued her education in nursing.  She worked for many years as a Certified Nursing Assistant, having cared for patients at Belding Christian Nursing Home (now Mission Point), and Corewell Health, Long Term Care in Greenville.  She also worked for several years serving customers at Wesco in Belding, having recently retired.  She married the love of her life, Daniel L. Rowland, shortly after completing high school and shared 42 years of marriage with him. Sheryle enjoyed gardening and any outdoor activity, especially camping and hiking. She loved to travel and recently completed a trip to South Dakota with Dan, during which, she did most of the driving while pulling the camper. She loved her children and adored her grandchildren and looked forward to taking as many of them as possible on their many trips to Blind Sucker Campground in the Upper Peninsula. She will be dearly missed by the whole family and her many friends.
