Shari S. Nyhus, 66, of Barronett died peacefully, surrounded by family, Sunday, August 5, 2018 at her home after a lengthy illness. She was born April 17, 1952 in Rice Lake, WI to Merle and Vesta (Hinze) Schnacky.

Shari was a dedicated, fun loving wife, mother and grandmother. She enjoyed spending time with her huge family! Shari's favorite hobbies included: cooking, fishing, hunting, gardening, listening to music and spending time outdoors. She was the matriarch of the family, the glue that brought everyone together. Her home was known as the "cabin" where everyone gathered and wanted to be. Her spunky personality, twinkling eyes, and amazing smile will be greatly missed by anyone who knew her.
