    Only met Cheryl from friends last year and we had a blast meeting up for pool and cards. Cheryl was a great person and a “hoot” to be around. She was a fun and loving human and will be missed by many many people. RIP Cheryl

    I was completely taken back when I received the news that Cheryl had passed. I’ve known her for almost 25 yrs. Even though we haven’t seen much of her the past couple of yrs she has always been a true and great friend. Cheryl had a heart of gold and would do anything she could to help out others. She loved America and supporting Veterans. We are going to miss her but she will not be forgotten. I’m sure we will remember and speak about good times we had for many yrs to come. Rest in peace my friend. To your children and family, we send our condolences…Don & Connie
