Memories Timeline


  1. I will miss Cheryl's smile, humor, and strength. Thoughts and prayers along with my deepest sympathy for your loss

  2. Can't compose sentences:
    Washington DC
    Ormond Beach FL
    Dancing With the Stars
    Laughs and love.

  3. There is a star shining brighter than most in the sky tonight, it is the star of our dear friend Cheryl.
    The few years we had together were so precious to both of us, we will miss your smiling face. We remember all the wonderful trips you took with us and the laughter and tears that we shared together. Your face that day when we took you off the snowcoach and had you standing on the glacier, will forever be ingrained in our hearts as we witnessed the joy on you face, that you achieved this.
    The you, beyond all the wonderful smiles and laughter we shared together, that we will miss the most, is your strength and courage.
    Of all the great women I have met in my life, nobody will ever compare to the admiration I have for you. I was always in awe of your greatness and your strength and how you always laughed at the improbable and then overcame the impossible.
    Thank you for your friendship and your love you will be missed on every bus tour.

  4. Beautiful friend and loving Aunt Cheryl, the reality of losing you is beyond words, my heart aches.
    You are already greatly missed by us all. I will find peace in memories, and in knowing that you are
    completely healed in Heaven and loving being with your Mom and adoring husband Uncle Bill, once again.
    Keep smiling your gorgeous smile down on us and continue to bring light into our lives as you always did.
    Till we meet again…
    Maureen and family

    Dearest Gretchen, Billy, Lauren, Dana and Nolting Family,
    Our love is with you all.
    With great sorrow and condolences,
    Maureen and family
