Starla Nadine Sherman Jackson was born January 24, 1969, in Valentine, NE to Hugh Loren and Roberta Jean (Lawlis) Sherman. Being the last born from a family of nine, Starla was blessed with creativity and a strong work ethic. She attended college at Colby Community College in Colby, KS, and studied for a degree in veterinary technician. However, she married before finishing her degree.

Starla was a person with a very generous heart and loved all things, animals, especially horses. Horses were always a part of her life whether she was riding or caring for them. Her consideration for others was evident in her baking and cooking skills, and then giving away to others. Other interests and hobbies she loved were quilting, crafting, and reading books. She always had a large and beautiful garden that she used for giving away produce and canning many jars for later use. Starla had a very creative heart and at one time wrote short articles of interest for the Fence Post magazine.

Her love for horses and cattle was evident as she mostly worked for feedlots wherever her home was established.

Starla is survived by daughter Jamie (Will) Huston from Torrington, WY, sons Brett Menuey of Washington, and Rowdy Jackson of Litchfield, two grandchildren Danielle and Montgomery Huston, siblings Frances Vasa of Arthur, Myra Boje of Hampton, Neva Sherman of Minnesota, and Sally Ruelas of Wisconsin, sisters-in-laws Helen Sherman of Valentine and Jane Sherman of Valentine, many nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Starla was preceded in death by her parents Hugh and Roberta Sherman, husband Jerry Jackson, son Taylor Finley, and brothers Gary, Blaine, Galen, and Frank Sherman.
