Sherry Ricardo, 58 of New Bedford, formerly of Onset and Plymouth, passed away unexpectedly at home on March 31, 2023. 
She was born in Brockton and was the daughter of the late Thomas Willdigg and Denise (Porta) Ellis.
She was raised in Plymouth and graduated from Plymouth-Carver High School in 1982.
Sherry worked as a waitress and bartender at numerous establishments in the area and truly enjoyed her time in the service industry.
A resident of Onset for 15 years, she loved the beach and village life. She had a quick wit, a vivacious sense of humor, made everyone laugh and was always a good time. She loved her Sun Conure parrot, Babes, cooking, watching documentaries and rides on her trike.
Sherry is survived by her daughter, Dakota (Ricardo) Metcalf and son-in-law, Nathan Metcalf of Germantown, MD; her son Jake Bertocchi of West Wareham; her brother Richard Willdigg and nephew Dusty Willdigg of Santa Cruz, CA and countless friends.
A Celebration of Life, all are welcome to attend, will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name towards the ongoing care of her beloved parrot to: Pets Pets Pets in Westford, MA.
