After the 1940s, Sherrill performed with Ray Nance and Rex Stewart, both former sideman for Ellington. She worked with Ellington again on the album A Drum Is a Woman (1956). Three years later, she toured the U.S., then played a role in The Long Dream on Broadway. She toured the USSR with Benny Goodman in 1962 and then sang again with Ellington the following year.
From 1970–82 she had a children's television show, Time for Joya, later called Joya's Fun School. During the 1980s she hosted a children's show in the Middle East.
She died from leukemia in 2010 at the age of 85.
