Charlie passed away Saturday, June 29, 2013 at Genesis Medical Center, West Campus. He was recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Charles Ambrose Sheridan was born in Davenport, Iowa on December 7, 1941, a son of Charles L. and Anastasia (Murphy) Sheridan. He attended grade and high school at St. Joseph’s in DeWitt. He attended St. Ambrose Seminary for 2 years, attended Loras College and graduated from the University of New Mexico with a BS in history and geography.

Charlie was a teacher at Maquoketa Junior High School for many years. In 1988 he was elected as the Clinton County Auditor retiring in 2008. He was on the board of Generations / Milestones and a member of St Joseph’s Catholic Church, DeWitt.

He was a loyal member of the Clinton County Democratic Party. He really enjoyed “the campaign trail”, recently working on Rita Hart’s election to the Iowa Senate. Charlie enjoyed his years of driving the equipment van for his RAGBRI friends.

Charlie was a devoted son, the best brother & uncle. We were very fortunate to have him in our lives.

Charlie is survived by his sister, Mary Ellen (Gary) Blunck, Davenport, and brother, Vincent (Molly) Sheridan, De Witt; nephews, Timothy (Andrea) Sheridan, Andrew (Brandi) Blunck, Theodore Sheridan; nieces Jenifer (Mark) Favetti, Bridget Sheridan, Amanda (Shay) Flanagan, Katherine Sheridan, and great nephews and nieces.
