According to Hana Shaf-Brener, there were two Sher families in Shkud. David Ruven Sher was married to Sarah Rivka (nee Mer). The couple had two children: Yakov and Yidl. Yosef Sher, a grain merchant, was married to Eta (nee Segal). The couple had four daughters: Hinda, Chaya, Sarah (who was in training on a kibbutz, probably in Kedainiai), and Tsipora, who had a job in a store.
According to Kehilat Shkud, Tsipa Sher was a member of Hashomer Hatzair:

Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Tax and Voters Lists database provides information on the Sher family of Shkud after 1892. Yosel (a me lamed) son of Yudel and Yosel (a butcher) son of Girsh are listed in 1904 and 1914 respectively, as well as Benjamin Sher and Ber Sher; but the relationships between these people and the Shers in the chart above are unclear. The Lithuanian Marriages database records the 1910 marriage of Govshei Sher, born to Beniamin in Skuodas about 1883 to Tsvia Levi; but again, the relationships are unclear.
The Lithuania Deaths database records the 1933 death of Yankel Sher, the son of David and Sore (nee Mir) in Skuodas, age 1, of bronchitis.
As of November 2013, I could find no information on Yad Vashem on the Sher family of Skuodas.
