As a child she traveled with her parents across eight states and two countries custom harvesting. In high school she was an excellent student and enthusiastic cheerleader. Following graduation, she went to cosmetology school. Cheryl went on to have four children, three girls and a son whom she loved more than life itself. She was a wonderful, devoted mother who taught her children life isn't always fair, you can do anything you set your mind to, and it's ok to cry when you're happy. After the birth of her children, she went through CNA classes and began a new path in her life. Cheryl went on to obtain her CMA and became a restorative aid. She loved working with the residents of the nursing home. She treated her residents with respect and a gentle touch. Cheryl was passionate about gardening. It helped her to relax and unwind. She would spend hours in her oasis planting, moving, repotting and trimming. When the weather turned and she couldn't spend time in her garden, you could find Cheryl rooting for her beloved KU Jayhawks on the hardwood. It was entertaining to watch a game with her as she would hoot and holler at the TV to let the refs know what she thought of their calls. Cheryl was polite, honest, and loving yet she wasn't afraid to tell you what was on her mind. She was skilled at any task she set her mind to. Cheryl married Jon in Las Vegas five years after he proposed. She was waiting for just the right date! Together they enjoyed attending classic car shows, driving the '58 to shows from Missouri to South Dakota. These shows allowed Cheryl time to enjoy three passions; traveling, spending time with her husband, and classic cars. Her favorite time of year was Christmas. She would decorate the whole house, including the outside where she would make Jon stay on the roof until the lights were all just right. She was a perfectionist in all that she did. It didn't matter if it came to gardening, decorating, picking out the perfect gift for everyone on her list or restoring furniture. Cheryl was a dedicated, loving grandmother. She was warm, loving and will be forever missed. We love you!
