Sheree was the oldest of six children born to Henry and Zenobia. Her siblings affectionately called her "Sherrie."

Sheree attended Chicago Public Schools for both her elementary and high school education (Calumet High School C/O 1976). Sheree gave her life to Christ at a young age.  Sheree was always very active in church (singing in the choir, acting in plays and attending bible studies) and attended with her siblings from a young age.  During her late teenage years Sheree and her sister Teresa began attending New Calvary Missionary Baptist Church (which she attended and was a member for a little over two more decades).  This is where she met a young musician named Marion "Scott."
