Sherry Jean Short
Sherry Chaney Short, 83, of Kings Mountain, NC, passed away on June 18, 2021 at Atrium Health Cabarrus in Concord, NC. She was born on August 10, 1937 in Cleveland County, NC, daughter of the late Reverend Robert Lattie and Winnie Moss Chaney and was preceded in death by her husband of 45 years, Loyd Short, by four brothers, Grady Lee, Robert Howard, Johnny Lee and Jack Chaney and six sisters, Lucille Chaney Gladden, Loretta Chaney, Peggy Chaney, Martha Sue Rhea, Edith Chaney Millwood, and Doretha "Sis" Chaney. She was also preceded in death by her son, Mark Short. Sherry worked with her sisters who owned and operated Peggy’s Restaurant of Kings Mountain for twenty-five years where patrons could enjoy old fashioned home cooking and where many became like family. She was a lifetime member of Second Baptist Church where her father served as minister. While she enjoyed movies and television, from cop shows to horror movies, what brought her the most joy in life was her family, especially her grandchildren on whom she doted.
She is survived by her son, Chris Short and his wife Lynn of Kings Mountain, and her grandchildren, Chad Short, Tyler Short, Brandy Short, Brett Short, Craig Foster, Stephanie Broome, and Amanda Willis, all of Kings Mountain, and Casey Short and his wife Victoria of Tarboro, NC.
