I remember sitting with Cheryl and talking with her about all the angst and misunderstandings I had as a teenager.
She was always positive, always listened, and always offered the best advice.
She will be sorely missed.

She was like a second Mom to my son Jimm Schilling for which I am grateful. She had a loving heart. My sincere sympathy to her children and grandkids.

I met Cheryl at Columbus Transitional when my dad was there. She was such a lovely, sweet lady and I enjoyed the conversations I had with her. She was very proud of all her family. I am sorry for your loss.
