It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Cheryl Hemphill on Saturday, October 23, 2021, at Harbourstone Enhanced Care with family and friends at her side. Cheryl was a fiercely devoted daughter, mother, teacher, and friend. She was well known in the community as a figure skating teacher in her earlier years. As an adult, she continued this love of children as an early childhood educator, where she worked at Sydney Day Care for many years.
Left behind to mourn are her son, Matthew; grandson, Noah, Grande Prairie, Alberta; brothers, Barry (Barb), Ontario, Blaine, Ontario; sister, Maureen (Maggie), Kentville and many extended family members. Also left to mourn are her cousin/sister, Jody Moore and her best friends, Liz MacDonald and Mary Ozon.
Cheryl was predeceased by her son, Noah; father, Walter and mother, Eileen (Madore) Hemphill.
Cheryl will always be remembered for her kind smile, fun sense of humour and infectious laughter.
Special thanks to Dr. Steve MacDougall, My Cape Breton Home for Seniors and Harbourstone Enhanced Care staff.
At Cheryl’s request, cremation has taken place, and a celebration of Cheryl’s life will be held at Pier Community Funeral Home on Saturday, November 20, 2021 from 2 – 4 p.m.
Donations in memory of Cheryl may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society or the SPCA Sydney.

Matthew and Noah. So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. We truly shared some wonderful times together over the years and particularly when we were all skating. What a group we were and Cheryl right in the middle of it all doing what she did best taking care of kids.
To the Hemphill family, you have lost your baby sister and a true angel. Remember her fondly and treasure those memories. From: Richard Book
