Hundreds pay their respects to committed Brent NHS worker


Over 300 people attended the funeral service of Brent health visitor Sharon Cherrie, regarded as someone committed to her work in Brent and a keen fundraiser for better health care in local communities.

The funeral took place at St. Sebastian and St. Pancras Church in Kingsbury where her children Elliot and Corinna Cherrie performed the eulogy.

Cllr Patrick Vernon led the tributes about Sharon’s life. He said: “Her character, personality, her fundraising efforts for local causes, her passion and commitment working as a nurse and health visitor for the NHS will be sorely missed.”

Cherrie worked for Parkside NHS and NHS Brent before she moved to Ealing in 2008. One of Sharon’s major research reports was shared among family and friends. The report looks at Caribbean mothers, with no social support from friends and family, who are deemed more likely to suffer from isolation and depression. This report highlighted one of Sharon’s many achievement in her aim to address health care issues.

Sharon died at the age of 53, following a blaze in a shed in the garden of her home in Manor Close, on April 7.

Sharon’s family are happy to accept any donations for the Father Mulligan’s Home for Boys in Grenada. Please contact for further information.
