Cheryl was such a kind and loving step-mom. She welcomed me and my mom into her family with open arms and I’m so greatful for all the wonderful memories we built as a blended family. I’m going to miss her very much.
Dear Christine, Nikki and family. I was saddened to hear of your mom’s passing! We had some great times for sure with all the family, sometime long ago! What mostly comes to my head about Cheryl, is when you were born Christine, and I came to visit to see the new born baby girl for the first time and how happy your mom was.
I know this is a very difficult time for you both to get through! Just hold close to your heart the wonderful memories, time will heal this great grief!
Cheryl is now at a resting place! 🙏
Cheryl was my massage therapist for some time, and quickly became a friend. She was so helpful in providing good advice to make me more pain-free and had a wonderful sense of humour and empathy, I didn’t see her once the covid rules kicked in, but never forgot her and the profound impact she had on me. May she rest in peace! My sincere condolences to all her family and loved ones.
I was deeply saddened to learn of Cheryl’s passing. I have some wonderful memories of our time spent together. The compassion she showed to Bob’s father in his final days amazing and we will always be grateful for that. She was a fun loving person who always put her family first. She was taken way too soon and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. RIP chickie.
