Camarillo, CA

Alice Laverna Henck Sherman, a good mother and good wife, passed away at home surrounded by her family on December 16. She was born March 1, 1923 at the original St. John's Hospital in Oxnard to Edward Warren Henck and Ethel Viola Addison Henck. Alice Married Jack Sherman, her knight in shining armor, on March 16, 1942 and they were married for 72 years. They were honored in 2015 for being one of the longest married couples in Ventura County.

Alice Graduated from Oxnard High School, class of '40, and attended the University of Santa Barbara before marrying her loving husband Jack and following him around the country for 20 years in the U.S. Air Force. She was a very wonderful and dedicated military wife. They retired to Camarillo in 1962 and lived in the same house on Grandview Circle with a beautiful view of the Oxnard plains and the Conejo Grade until her passing.

She worked for Bank of America in Camarillo for over 20 years as a teller and then as a loan officer at a time when loans were made face to face with a handshake and with a passion to help people get started with their business or in buying their first home. The Pleasant Valley Historical Society honored her as a Camarillo Dona in 1998 and she attended the Don and Dona annual presentation every year since, loving to go to the Camarillo House and other community sites.

Several trips were taken with her husband Jack and their three daughters that created many wonderful memories including Hawaii, Seattle and Paris. She loved traveling with the "Travelin' Folks" trailer club and Friends of the Library.

St. John's Pleasant Valley Hospital Auxiliary honored her for 19 years of service at the emergency room reception desk before she was forced to resign due to illness. She was also a longstanding member and officer as well as one of the last three members of the Las Posas Women's Club.

Alice is survived by her husband, Jack and three daughters, Pamela (Fred) Lenk, Susan (William) Chambers, and Kristie Rogers. She had eight grandchildren, Peter (Brandy) Rogers, Bret (Erica) Chambers, Thomas Lenk, Amanda (Eric) Mahan, Clint Chambers, Jamie (Michael) Derganz, Erich Lenk, Stephanie (Bear) Blackbear and twelve great grandchildren. She is also survived by her cousin who was like a brother to her, Roy Addison (Jana) Stacy.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, December 22, 2015 at Griffin Family Funeral Chapels, 1075 E. Daily Dr., Camarillo. Interment will follow at Conejo Mountain Memorial Park, Camarillo.
