DELMAR – Noreen M. “Reenie” Sherman, 89, of Delmar died Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at St. Peter’s Hospital following a brief illness.
She was born in Syracuse, NY, the daughter of the late Richard T. and Marion E. Mahoney. Reenie graduated from St. Anthony’s School in Syracuse and following WWII married her lifelong sweetheart Paul F. Sherman.

She loved sharing her Irish wit with family and friends and was a formidable card player specializing in pitch and bridge. She was a dedicated blood donor for the American Red Cross for many years. Hers was a full life…well lived.

Bergquist of Clifton Park; grandchildren, Paul S.
