AILEEN B. SHERWOOD 1922-2020 Aileen B. Sherwood, 97, of Lake Monticello, VA, passed away on January 2, 2020. She is reunited with her husband, Edward, who passed away in 2011 and is with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was born in Mexico, ME, July 11, 1922, a daughter of Daniel and Leona Holman. She graduated from Mexico High School. Aileen was also a graduate of Farmington State Teachers College and taught elementary school for many years including at one time in a one-room school house. After retirement, she and her husband enjoyed time at their cottage in Weld and a place in South Harpswell, Maine. Eventually they moved to Lake Monticello, Virginia, and enjoyed several wonderful years together before her husband of 64 years of marriage passed away. She was a member of the Mexico Baptist Church in Maine for many years. As her health allowed, she continued faithfully attending church with her family in VA. Aileen loved to travel and took many wonderful trips with her husband. She enjoyed doing puzzles and needlepoint. She was known for her beautiful smile and laugh. For anyone who ever met Aileen, they would say they never met a stranger. Surviving are two sons: Harvey Sherwood and his wife Nancy of Standish, ME; and Neal Sherwood and his wife Gwen of Lake Monticello, VA. Also two grandsons: Matthew Gatti and Daniel Sherwood along with six beautiful great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents and one brother Arlie Holman. The family extends a special thank you to Meals on Wheels of Fluvanna County and to a special Christian lady who helped take loving care of her during the last months of her life.

Dearest Neal and Gwen - You have my deepest condolences on the loss of your sweet mother. I'll always have fond memories of our chats at Beulah about our mutual home state of Maine, its weather, and Whoopie Pies. She was such a delightful lady and may she rest peacefully alongside her beloved husband, Ed.

Our Monday knitting group, HUGS, was blessed by Aileen's presence as she was a regular member until she was no longer able to attend. She had a beautiful smile and always looked at the bright side of life. She was a woman of deep faith and I am very fortunate to have known her.
With my condolences,
Celie McGurk

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.
