Our loving mother, grandmother, and friend passed away on Thursday, July 12, 2018, in Tooele, Utah. Sherron was born in Joseph, Utah, on Nov. 21, 1936, to Doran Ray Hunt and Ada Burningham Hunt. Sherron graduated from Tooele High School in 1955. Sherron married her high school sweetheart and love of her life, Ronald Duane Gillette, on Nov. 19, 1954. Together they had two children, Debra Ann Gillette and Leslie Duane Gillette.
Sherron assisted Ronald in management of two successful businesses: Green Top Cab and Gillette Ambulance. She enjoyed taking care of her grandchildren and supporting them in all of their activities. Sherron enjoyed quilting, cooking and planting flowers in her garden. She loved to vacation with Ron. One of her favorite vacation spots was going to Jackson Hole for snowmobiling.
Sherron loved spending time with her family, especially during the holidays, which was her favorite time of the year. Sherron enjoyed wearing her clothes color coordinated. Even her shoes and purses had to match.
