Sherry L. Harrington


Sherry L. Harrington 74, passed away on Sunday, December 15, 2019. Born in Ballston Spa, NY on July 31, 1945, she was the daughter of Joseph and Vivian Moulton.

Sherry worked for General Electric in Schenectady, Knolls Atomic Power Lab in Niskayuna and retired from the Kesslering Site in West Milton after over forty years of service. She loved to cook and bake. If a co-worker had a birthday you could be sure Sherry baked a cake for them to share. She was famous for her Thanksgiving fudge which she gave out and mailed across the country.

Sherry enjoyed boating with her husband Ted and spending time at their vacation home in Puerto Rico. She was a puzzle fanatic and liked to garden, mow the lawn, and tend to her birdfeeders. She was a volunteer at numerous local charities, helping out wherever she could. She spent lots of time at the Saratoga Racino, sometimes winning.

She enjoyed luncheons with her friends. Her greatest joy was her family and she insisted on hosting the family get togethers so everyone could swim in the pool, no matter what the weather. Sherry was a generous and kind-hearted soul who was loved by all who knew her.

Sherry is survived by her husband of 49 years, Ted and their children, Tom Harrington (Julie), Doreen Mitchell (Glenn), Kevin Harrington, Sandy Demskie (Andrew), and Wendy Candiano (Bruce); grandchildren Alyson, Anthony, Joseph, Jason, Alexandria, Skye, Steve, and Kristina; great grandchildren Kambrie and Jackson; siblings James Moulton, Mary Ellen Drindak, and Jeffrey Moulton; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother Joseph Moulton.

Funeral services will be held 10am Thursday, December 19 at Armer Funeral Home, Inc., 39 East High Street, Ballston Spa. Relatives and friends are invited to call on Wednesday, December 18 from 5pm to 7pm at the funeral home. Burial will be in Rock City Falls Cemetery in the Spring.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in memory of Sherry may be made to the American Cancer Society.

Ted and family,
Where do we start...
I met Sherry when I was only 17 years old, she and Ted were actually great friends with Jacks parents.
In the late 1980's Sherry asked Jack and I to go on vacation with them to Puerto Rico and our lives and friendship were forever bonded.
Sherry and I went skiing together, we went to the casino together (even staying overnight sometimes just to have our girlfriend talks), we would have lunches out and have dinners in together and play cards together (of course, we were partners and oh how we loved beating Ted and Jack at hearts...we didn't like to lose)...we even took a plane over to St. Thomas from Puerto Rico. She would have my grandkids up to swim with her and always made sure that there were swim toys and a lunch that the kids would love. She even made sure that our grandson, James birthday was always celebrated while he was in Puerto Rico...
Sherry had an over 20 year battle with her cancer...she was strong and would never let it get her down. Her toughest battle was this past year when she started chemo, it was very hard on her and at times she wanted to give up because it made her so sick. When she would finally get some strength back, I would always make sure to make her a dinner that I knew she loved and played cards against our husbands the night before each treatment. We cherished our time together. She called me her sister from another mother and that we were 2 peas in a pod because we thought so much alike.
A piece of my heart left me when she called me the other day and told me that she was at the end of her road and that they could do no more for her. I didn't want to believe it as I said before she is the strongest woman I have ever met.
Sherry had a heart of gold which touched everyone she met. Her smile and zest for life was contagious and she knew how to have a great time.
Heaven has gained an angel who will forever be watching over us all.
Sherry was so beautiful inside and out and I will forever cherish our memories we made together.
Rest In Peace our forever friend...
Ted and family, stay strong because you know that's what she would tell you to do...
Take comfort in the fact that she is no longer suffering...
We love you and are here for you..
Love Debbie & Jack

Heaven just got another saint but this one is very special. I worked with Sherry at Knolls Atomic Power Labs. Sherry never complained about her cancer and took each hurdle with a smile and always said to me "MJ, it is what it is". I will never forget the day that she told me that she was done with it, retiring and just wanted to be left alone. No more surgeries. Her body was tired. I knew then that she was tired and had no more fight left. We laughed, joked but never once did I ever hear her say or talk about anyone. She was the kindest person that I ever met and I will miss her terribly. Bless you my friend and spread your spirit throughout the heavens.
