Augusta, GA – Sherrian Justice Jimenez, (68) of Augusta, GA passed away on December 31, 2022 after battling Covid. She was a fighter, the likes of which this world rarely sees. A quiet end to a life lived in full color.
Sherrian was born August 31, 1954, to Orlanda and Nettie Rae Justice in San Francisco, California, although she considered Augusta, GA to be her hometown. Sherrian was the second oldest of 6 children. She graduated from Glenn Hills High School in 1972 and spent the bulk of her adult life as a homemaker.
At 18, she met Joaquin Albert Jimenez, and her life would never be the same. They had a journey that would toss and turn, go up and down, around and back again, and together, they raised three children.
Sherrian was a selfless woman who never let the trials of her life, including surviving breast cancer three times, overcoming debilitating mental illness, being a two-time widower, heartache and disappointment, or loss, change her positive outlook. She had the unique ability to see the good, and in turn, inspire those around her to try to do the same. She was grace personified.
While Sherrian carried many titles ranging from wife, mother, daughter, friend and sister, the role she was MOST proud of was grandmother. Her grandchildren gave her purpose and her love for them was unconditional. She was an AVID sports fan and would often spend her time watching the games and of course “coaching” from the comfort of her favorite recliner. One of her not so hidden talents is that Sherrian was the best bartender around and could make a mean bloody mary!! She had the ability to make EVERYONE she met feel seen. The world is a little darker without her.
Sherrian was a small woman with a mighty spirit. A true bad ass who fought battles most couldn’t even imagine and came out of the other side with a smile on her face waiting on her ice cream and diet coke!
It is our wish that she is finally at peace; walking hand in hand with her beloved husband who preceded her in death. She prepared her family for many, many things. She imparted lessons and inspired many by showing her grace in adversity. The ONLY thing she failed to do is to teach those who loved her so how to live in this world without her.
A memorial service will be held Sunday, Janaury 8, 2023 at 11:00 A.M. in the chapel of Thomas Poteet & Son, visitation with the family will begin at 10:00 A.M.
