It is with sadness the Department of OB-GYN shares the recent passing of Sherry Morris on November 11, 2022. Sherry began her career with UVA on November 16, 1973 as a temporary worker in Medical Records. Within 6 months she was recruited to the Department of OB-GYN where she served for the next 48 years. During her journey with OB-GYN she supported seven different department chairs, numerous faculty, hundreds of residents and fellows, and dozens of staff in her various roles. Her most recent role, where many people met her, was as the billing and coding manager for professional services within OB-GYN. Over her decades of service Sherry guided OB-GYN through billing system transitions, paper charts to electronic medical records, and payer rules with attention to detail and her trademark humor. Her love for the Department of OB-GYN was apparent as she embraced each new member to the team and quickly became their best friend. She will be greatly missed by the whole department. A memorial contribution in Sherry’s honor can be made to our local SPCA as caring for pets was one of her many loves.
