Sherry Lynn Boucher, or Sherry Boucher-Lytle (born 1945), is a former American actress who was once married to actor George Peppard. She is now a Realtor in Bossier Parish in northwestern Louisiana. She is a younger sister of actress Savannah Smith Boucher.

Boucher (pronounced BUTCHER) was born in Springhill in northern Webster Parish to Jesse L. Boucher (1912 2004) and the former Mary Eloise Herrington (born November 21, 1923). Her father co-owned Boucher and Slack Insurance Agency, served as mayor of Springhill from 1958 1962, and later became a successful developer. Sherry Boucher graduated in 1963 from Springhill High School, having been involved in multiple school activities, including basketball, cheerleading, and student council. She first attended Northwestern State University at Natchitoches, Louisiana, her father’s alma mater. In 1965, she was voted queen of the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. In April 1966, she appeared as queen of Holiday in Dixie, an annual spring observance in Shreveport. Soon she was under contract with Universal Studios. She transferred to the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, from which she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in speech and drama.

Between 1967 and 1974, Boucher guest starred on such television series as Lassie (in the recurring role of Sue Lambert, 1973 1974), Dragnet with Jack Webb (as Carmen Willis in "The Bank Jobs"), Run for Your Life, with Ben Gazzara, The F.B.I. with Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., O'Hara, U.S. Treasury with David Janssen, Sanford and Son with Redd Foxx, and Columbo with Peter Falk.

She also had leading roles in various plays, including The Impossible Years (with Ozzie and Harriet Nelson) and "Couple of White Chicks Sitting Around Talking" by John Ford Noonan. In 1964, she appeared under the name "Sherry Lynn" in the film The Shepherd of the Hills, with Richard Arlen as "The Shepherd", based on the Harold Bell Wright novel. Two other film roles were in White Lightning (1973) with Burt Reynolds and Five Days from Home (1979), in the role of Wanda Dulac, co-starring with husband, George Peppard, and sister, Savannah. Her most recent roles were in the films Nursie (2004), having appeared again with her sister, and Jeremiah’s Secret (2006), in which she played the role of "Pam".

Boucher-Lytle has addresses in Bossier City and nearby Benton, the Bossier Parish seat of government, where she continues to work in real estate. She belongs to the Louisiana Realty Political Action Group, the Screen Actors Guild, and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. She is descended from a line of Louisiana Democratic politicians. Her mayor-father’s first cousin, the late Drayton Boucher, was a member of both houses of the Louisiana State Legislature, having served from 1936-1952. Boucher's maternal uncle, Johnny D. Herrington, served as Springhill mayor from 1978 1986 and again from 1995-2006.

A motivational speaker, Boucher-Lytle is the founder of Mothers Against Guns in the Classroom. She has a daughter, Chessa B. Lytle, by former husband John R. Lytle, Boucher also has a younger sister, Jessica Boucher, who is engaged to American Record Producer & Mixer Kevin Beamish, Nashville, Tennessee, as of 2009. Boucher also appears to have lost a child in another, presumably second, marriage; her father's obituary lists a deceased granddaughter, Sherri LeAnn Campbell, but there is no mention of who the father "Campbell" was.
