VIP: Sherry Vesotski

This month we are featuring Sherry Vesotski as our VIP. She is an AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP volunteer. Sherry volunteers in our Gift Shop and uses her many years of working with the public to make our guests feel welcome at the Fenton. She also willingly helps out with projects at the Mansion.
Sherry has lived in the Jamestown area for most of her life moving here with her family here from Pennsylvania when she was a small child. After graduating from Jamestown High School, she married and raised a family. She spent her working years at WCA Hospital where she was a secretary and Unit Clerk retiring in 2013.

Sherry was widowed in November of 2021 and lives in Greenhurst with her two cats. Her daughter and son-in-law live nearby. She has a son in Carrboro, NC and three stepchildren living in Allegheny and Olean.

Finding herself with a bit of time on her hands she sought out volunteer opportunities. In 2013 she began volunteering at the Chautauqua County Humane Society and a cat socializer. Then in 2022 Sherry wanted to learn more about the history of Jamestown and to meet interesting people. We at the Fenton were the lucky recipients of her time and interests.

When she has a few free moments, she enjoys walking through the Greenhurst and Lakeview Cemeteries. And on rainy days you can find Sherry reading novels and biographies, working crossword and jigsaw puzzles. What a busy and interesting person she is. Stop by the Gift Shop on any Monday or Friday afternoon and introduce yourself to her..
