Graveside services for Sheryl Lynn Acosta, 72, West Plains, Missouri, will be held at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, February 4, 2024, at Howell Valley Cemetery, under the direction of Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.
Sheryl passed away Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at West Vue Nursing Center after her battle with Dementia.
She was born October 21, 1951 to two loving parents, Blan and Molly Carter in West Plains, Missouri and was a bundle of joy from the very beginning. Sheryl enjoyed pastimes such as painting, beading, creating stained glass windows, traveling, spending time with grandkids at sporting events, Werther’s candies, shopping, drinking coke zeros while eating Kentucky Fried Chicken and enjoying Strawberry Daiquiris with the girls on Wednesdays at “El Charros”. Sheryl had many jobs in her lifetime but fell into her own as a Real Estate agent. She received many honors as a Real Estate agent including earning both the Summit and Pinnacle Level awards for her sales. Sheryl also served as the President of the West Plains Board of Realtors. However, Sheryl was best known as the Hot Country KDY 102.5fm “Hot Shot” where she would promote her various house listings. She was also featured on a Billboard in West Plains as the “Dream Catcher” making your home ownership dreams come true. While taking prospective home buyers on home tours in Howell County in her White Chevy Avalanche “North Face Edition”, for over 450,000 miles, was extremely important to Sheryl, being a mother and grandmother was one of the most crucial parts of Sheryl’s life, a role that gave her much pride and joy. Sheryl was an excellent mom, supportive, kind, hilarious, and witty and we will all miss her dearly. Sheryl was a member of Pomona Christian Church in Pomona Missouri.
Sheryl is survived by her son Jonathan Bergman, his wife Missy, grandchildren Brittany, Ian and wife Kayla, Kenzie, Kennedy and boyfriend Jason Lopez, her daughter-in-law, Patricia Marie Lentz, her deceased brother’s sons, Chris and Mike Carter, her best friends ,Mona and Randy Upton and her favorite President Donald J. Trump.
She was preceded in death by her first husband, Joseph Bergman, her second husband, Al Acosta, her parents, Blan and Molly Carter and her brother, Steve Carter.
Visitation services will be held from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m., Saturday, at Robertson-Drago Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Howell County Republic Party (as that would make her chuckle) or any charity of choice and may be left at or mailed to Robertson-Drago Funeral Home, 211 West Main, West Plains, MO 65775.
