She loved working with children. Later in life, Cheryl did office and clerical work for different businesses. She ended her career working for the IBEW in Washington, D.C. Cheryl always stayed active. She enjoyed all physical activity: biking, running, going for walks, doing yoga, and completing workout programs. She also enjoyed her downtime and spent hours sewing, quilting, reading, and baking. Her family and friends enjoyed everything she made in the kitchen, especially her apple crisp. Cheryl loved having people over and hosting get-togethers. Family meant everything to Cheryl. She was proud to be one of six children and to come from a supportive and loving family. She instilled the importance of family in her own children and grandchildren. Cheryl was always bragging about their accomplishments. She was their biggest cheerleader. She was also a wonderful grandmother and spoiled her seven grandchildren by hosting sleepovers and tea parties, reading countless books to them, and by being a very active grandma. Cheryl brought happiness into the lives of everyone that knew her. She will be greatly missed by so many.
