Sherry (Sis) Lynn Prokos, age 56, of New Milford, CT, passed away peacefully with her husband and daughters by her side at Yale New Haven Hospital on Sunday, October 15, 2017.
Sherry was born on September 17, 1961 and was raised in Ellenville, NY, by her beloved parents, Donald and Joan (Williams) Lewis. She was a graduate of Ellenville High School.
Sherry met her true love, her husband Dean Prokos, at Bailey’s Lake Campground in New York in 1976. They shared many wonderful memories together including bringing up their two daughters and welcoming four grandchildren.
Sherry enjoyed many things in her life including the variety of positions she held throughout her career, vacationing in Point Pleasant Beach, camping with her family and friends of Cozy Hills, sewing, reading and catching up on her soap operas…but nothing brought her more joy than spending time with her family.
Sherry was a devoted daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother and grandmother. She will be forever remembered by her family for her warm smile, kind heart and for her persistent way of always putting others happiness before her own.
Sherry was predeceased by her father, Donald Lewis, and is survived by her mother Joan Lewis of Ellenville, NY, sister Vicki Forgette of Ellenville, NY, brothers Ronald Conklin of Jacksonville, NC and Scott Conklin of Topeka, KS and several nieces and nephews. She leaves behind her loving husband Dean Prokos of New Milford, CT, daughters Katina Wall of Brookfield, CT and her husband Robert Wall and Victoria Duncan of New Milford, CT and her husband Ian Duncan along with four grandchildren whom she loved dearly, Tanner and Landon Wall and Quinn and Collin Duncan.
Calling hours will be held at Lillis Funeral Home 58 Bridge Street New Milford, CT between the hours of 11:00 am and 2:00 pm Saturday October 21, 2017 followed by a brief service.
